Classic 80’s songs: All You Zombies by The Hooters, live 1986

April 3, 2009


Video: YouTube

The Hooters released “All you Zombies in 1985. The song is totally religious, however this is not the reason why I like it, I have just always thought that it’s a good sounding song ever since I first heard it back in the eighties.

See the words to the song, click here

Holy moses met the Pharaoh
Yeah, he tried to set him straight
Looked him in the eye, ‘let my people go’

Holy moses on the mountain
High above the golden calf
Went to get the Ten Commandments
He’s just gonna break them in half

All you zombies hide your faces
All you people in the street
All you sittin’ in high places
The pieces gonna fall on you

No one ever spoke to Noah
They all laughed at him instead
Working on his ark, working all by himself

Only Noah saw it coming
Forty days and forty nights
Took his sons and daughters with him
They were the Israelites

All you zombies hide your faces
All you people in the street
All you sittin’ in high places
The rain’s gonna fall on you

(Instrumental)

Holy Father, what’s the matter
Where have all your children gone
Sitting in the dark, living all by themselves
You don’t have to hide anymore

All you zombies show your faces
All you people in the street
All you sittin’ in high places
The pieces gonna fall on you

All you zombies show your faces
All you people in the street
All you sittin’ in high places
It’s all gonna fall on you

    I heard this song for the first time about 1 month ago. I don’t know how it got past me in the 80s. I’ve always loved and listened to all types of music. I think the music is unbelievably great and the lyrics are good. The video was kind of strange. It wasn’t what I expected. What was the controversy over this song back then? The lyrics are certainly not offensive, so why did some ‘religious’ groups ban it or refuse to play it? The lyrics make sense to me because there are alot of ‘zombies’ in this world who haven’t a clue as to what is going on around them. They lyrics speak the truth when it says “all you zombies hide your faces it’s gonna fall on you. Maybe the video DOES make sense.

Got something to say?
