Buffy filk: Stay Alive

Buffy the Vampire Slayer 40 Disc Set I have been singing this to myself all morning. I only hope that I will be able to get it out so I can get some work done.

Stay Alive
ttto: 9 to 5 (Dolly Parton)

Vampires in my bed and demons in the kitchen
Some folks say that it’s just superstition
But I’ve seen lots of dead things come alive.
Out on patrol and my heart starts thumpin’
But I’m not scared of the things that go bump in
The night - it’s just my job and I’ll survive.

Got to stay alive
Just so I can keep on slayin'.
But I can't get by
On what the Council's payin'.
I’m the chosen one
But those old farts don't seem to get it
How come I do all the work and
They take all the credit?

Stay alive
I'm still only in my teens
And I'm five-by-five
But I don't know what that means
Fighting the undead
I know that I'll do my best
But I'm filled with dread
'Cuz I'm gonna flunk my math test!

My freshman year would've made you shudder
Then I gained a sister and I lost a mother
Now I've got a mortgage and lots of bills to pay
Facing Armageddon with a bunch of my friends
If we don't save the day the world's gonna end
The tide's gonna turn
Then we'll do it all again next May.

Got to stay alive
With the world on my shoulders
Barely getting by
And feeling so much older
Should be dating guys
And cutting college courses
Not fighting demon gods and
Dark primeval forces

But I'm getting out
I've found a good solution
I will bring about
A Slayer revolution
Let the power spread
I've got the job of my dreams
'Cuz I'm at the head
Of a Chosen pyramid scheme!
