Dead Girl Walking is the sixth song of Act One of the Off-Broadway musical, Heathers. In this song, Veronica has just been excommunicated from the popular clique by Heather Chandler, the merciless queen of Westerberg High School. On Monday Veronica will face ostracism or even physical violence. Long after midnight, with thirty hours left before her execution, Veronica wanders the darkened suburban streets, but then glimpses the darkly sexy new kid, J.D. Throwing caution to the wind, Veronica climbs in his bedroom window…

Heathers- The Musical - Dead Girl Walking (lyrics)


The demon queen of high school has decreed it
She says Monday, 8 am I'll be deleted
They’ll hunt me down in Study Hall
Stuff and mount me on the wall
Thirty hours to live
How shall I spend them?

I don’t have to stay and die like cattle
I could change my name and ride up to Seattle
But I don’t own a motor bike
Wait, here’s an option that I like
Spend these thirty hours getting’ freaky

I need it hard
I’m a dead girl walking
I’m in your yard
I’m a dead girl walking

Before they punch my clock
I’m snappin’ off your window lock
Got no time to knock
I’m a dead girl walking

What are you doin’ in my room?

Sorry, but I really had to wake you
See, I’ve decided I must ride you ‘till I break you
‘Cause Heather says I gotsta go
You’re my last meal on Death Row
Shut your mouth and lose them tighty whiteys
Come on!

Tonight I’m yours!
I’m your dead girl walking
Get on all fours
Kiss this dead girl walking
Let’s go, you know the drill
I’m hot, and pissed and of the pill
Bow down to the will of a dead girl walking

And you know, you know, you know
It’s cause you’re beautiful
You say you’re numb inside
But I can’t agree
So the world’s unfair?
Keep it locked out there
In here it’s beautiful
Let’s make this beautiful!

That works for me!

Full steam ahead
Take this dead girl walking

How’d you find my address?

Let’s break the bed
Rock this dead girl walking

I think we tore my mattress!

No sleep tonight for you
Better chug that Mountain Dew

Okay, okay!

Get your ass in gear
Make this whole town disappear

Okay, okay!

Slap me, pull my hair
Touch me there, there, there (There, there, there)
And no more talking (Woah!)
Love this dead girl walking (Woah, woah! Hey, hey! Yeah, yeah!)
Love this dead girl walking (Love this dead girl Woah, woah! Hey, hey! Wait, wait!)
Love this dead girl (Love this dead girl)
Yeah, yeah, yeah (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
