For those wondering about the lyrics, here they are!

There's something rotten in this den
Mark my words it doth offend the senses (worse than ragweed)
There'll be the underworld to pay
no matter what the Pastor* say his defense is ( I can feel a sneeze -- achoo!)

The Loa of the Dead

An abomination is taking place
The Piper propagates a race of Zombies (which is a Class A crime)

Wanton festering Resurrection
leads to a mounting insurrection of Wannabes    (than it's work, work, work, all the time)
Then it's work, work, work, work, all the time

For the Loa of the Dead

The natural balance is all messed up,
Somebody's got to nip this bud in the marrow    (what did I do with my flyswatter?)

With the icy hands of Death upon him
He'll rue the days of life beyond him with sorrow     (he'll be lucky to be daisy fodder)

There is only one only only one Loa of the Dead
There is only one only only one Loa of the Dead

*The original lyric was actually Piper (a lead character, but it works fine the way he sung it.)

It does not make sense when taken out of context, but what is happening is Baron Samedi, Loa of the Dead, is sniffing out the Piper who is responsible for cultivating a race of Zombies (to do research and find a cure for his daughter, Julie, who is thus inflicted.) The Baron has a head cold so is having a hard time locating the Piper. The Loa of the Dead carries a flyswatter. If he considers you annoying, he swats you with the swatter and you're dead.
