Just Go Away (My Husband The Zombie)

It wasn't supposed to turn out this way.
A blissful marriage it once had been
Then he was suddenly dead and laying in a casket in the ground.  
Now, he's a Zombie of the most gruesome kind
Who doesn't even recognize my face
 
 
 The accident happened during our trip to the mountains.  
Where he slipped and had fallen off a cliff
 dying instantly when his body hit
 the rocks at the bottom of the cliff.
 
Now, here he is trying to bust down my front door
I just can't live this nightmare any more
He got inside before I could get to the door
Suddenly, I was knocked to the floor
 
In his right hand he held a hypodermic needle
That he tried to stick in me again and again
While we lay struggling there on the floor
I finally got it in one hand and jammed into
One of  his eyes
 
I started to scream as loud as I could  
Hoping someone would hear me
And send for myself some help my way
I didn't know what else to do anyway
 
Things got much worse before the police came
He yanked on my hair while his blood dripped down on my face
God, how  I prayed he would just go away
