Bella Ciao, Zombie Edition

The Zombies
They are waking
Bella ciao Bella ciao Bella ciao ciao ciao
In the night time While you are sleeping
They will eat your brains in bed

We are home here
Though a fortress
Bella ciao Bella ciao Bella ciao ciao ciao
Guns and food here in this Walmart
It will keep us both alive

The survivors
We have gathered
Bella ciao Bella ciao Bella ciao ciao ciao
Yesterday we were strangers
But our friendship’s bound in blood

Goodbye friends
I am leaving
Bella ciao Bella ciao Bella ciao ciao ciao
Now that walkers Got my sweetheart
There is nothing keeps me here

Got my shotgun
Got this gas can
Bella ciao Bella ciao Bella ciao ciao ciao
To their nest now I am creeping
I will bring them all to hell

Dear companions
A request now
Bella ciao Bella ciao Bella ciao ciao ciao
Now I’m bitten And I’m turning
Put a bullet in my brain
