With all the zombies and doomsayers out there, how can a girl get a decent cup of coffee? (Campaign: Hamanuptra)

lyrics

Post Apocalyptic Blues
© 2011 by Mary Crowell
I’m just a girl uncomplicated
Got a flexible mind.
My destiny and what is fated
I prefer undefined.
But ride with priests and they tell you it is
The end of the world (Got the)
Post-apocalyptic-I-ain’t-got-no-coffee-world-is-full-of-zombies blues

A mocha latte leaves me sated
If you don’t over-grind.
I’m much more fun when caffeinated
Killing ghouls to unwind
But doleful priests like to tell you it is
The end of the world (Got the)
Post-apocalyptic-I-ain’t-got-no-coffee-world-is-full-of-zombies blues

Bored girl adventurer
Please, unfasten your assassin
Just let me loose upon the land; I push a strand back. (winsomely.)

Some call my tastes sophisticated,
Chase my java with wine
I’ll Explore a temple, desecrate it.
Then do the same to a shrine.
But silly priests want to tell you it is
The end of the world (Got the)
Post-apocalyptic-I-ain’t-got-no-coffee-world-is-full-of-zombies blues

Bored girl adventurer
Gloom and doomin’ in the tomb
I’m gonna raid for idols gold. Last year I sold an artifact. (Not yours.)

Those ancient runes I just translated?
I think they bring and unbind
Abhorrent demons long awaited.
To send them back is unkind.
But frightened priests want to tell you it is
The end of the world (Got the)
Post-apocalyptic-I-ain’t-got-no-coffee-world-is-full-of-zombies blues.
Post-apocalyptic-Dammit-where’s my-coffee?-world-is-full-of-zombies blues.
Post-apocalyptic-Shoulda-brought-me-coffee!-world-is-full-of-zombies blues.
