When You're An Addams Song Lyrics


Ancestral Voices:
AH AH AH AH
AH AH AH AH
AH AH AH AH
AH! AH!
Gomez (Spoken):
Ah, the intoxicating smell of the graveyard. Once a year, we gather beneath our family tree to honor the great cycle of life and death. Come, every member of our clan - living, dead, and undecided - and let us celebrate what is to be an Addams. Come to me, my luscious wife. Oh, she of skin so pale, eyes so black, and dress cut down to Venezuela, and tell us what it is that every Addams hopes for.
Morticia (Spoken):
Darkness and grief and unspeakable sorrow.
Gomez (Spoken):
I love it when you talk sexy.
Gomez (Sung):
When you're an Addams
You need to have a little moonlight
When you're an Addams
You need to feel a little chill
You have to see the world in shades of gray
You have to put some poison in your day
Motricia (Spoken):
That's the way
Gomez and Morticia:
When you're an Addams
Gomez:
You need to have a sense of humor
Gomez and Morticia:
When you're an Addams
Morticia:
You need to have a taste for death
Gomez and Morticia:
Who cares about the world outside
And what it wants from you
When you're an Addams
You do what Addams always do!
Gomez (Spoken):
Ah, mi amor!
Morticia (Spoken):
Will you love me forever and ever?
Gomez (Spoken):
We shall be as besotted with each other as the night we met.
Morticia (Spoken):
Our first date. You took me to see--
Gomez (Spoken):
Death of a Salesman.
Morticia (Spoken):
And how we laughed!
Addams Family:
When you're an Addams
Gomez:
You gotta have a lotta passion
Addams Family:
When you're an Addams
Morticia:
You need to really love your wife
Gomez (Spoken):
At least once a day
Addams Family:
You're happy when your toes are in the mud
Fester and Grandma:
You smile a bit the moment you smell blood
AA-OOOH!!!
Addams Family:
When you're an Addams
Wednesday:
You need to grab a bow and arrow
Addams Family:
When you're an Addams
Pugsley:
You need a moment to explode
Grandma:
Just pour a potion
Fester:
Flip the switch
Fester/Grandma/Wednesday/Pugsley:
And wait till things get hot
Addams Family:
When you're an Addams
You have to really stir the pot
So give us shadows and give us gloom
Broken glass in a motel room
Something fun we can all exhume
And give it all tonight!
Gomez (Spoken):
And now we summon our beloved Ancestors. Why do we do this?
Morticia (Spoken):
Because living or dead, family is still family.
Gomez (Spoken):
Yes! And how do we do this?
Fester (Spoken):
By dancing on their graves
Gomez (Spoken):
Yes! Dance my brother Fester. Time to wake the dead!
Ancestors:
Once torn asunder
Down six feet under
We get to gather here
Conquistador:
Dead for forever
Caveman:
Bled from whatever
Conquistador and Caveman:
Called now to reappear
Soldier and Cowgirl:
Every cadaver
Start the palaver
Once in an Addams year
Ancestors:
Hold your decaying
Hear what we're saying
Time now to give a cheer
Gomez (Spoken):
Line Dance!
Bunny Hop!
Do the Twist!
Rigor Mortis!
All:
When you're an Addams
Male Ancestors:
That's right!
When you're an Addams
Addams Family/Female Ancestors:
You have a very special duty
Male Ancestors:
Late night! Out with the Addams!
Addams Family/Female Ancestors:
When you're an Addams
Male Ancestors:
With one bite
All:
You're obligated to the clan
It's family first and family last
And family by and by
When you're an Addams
The standard answers don't apply
When you're and Addams
You do what Addams do or die!
