Dead Girl Walking lyrics

“Heathers: The Musical” takes us back to an era filled with scrunchies, shoulder pads, and the tumultuous emotions of adolescence. At the heart of this nostalgic journey is the impactful tune, “Dead Girl Walking.” This initial melody marks the beginning of Veronica Sawyer’s transformation – a shift from an aspiring popularity-seeker to an unwitting participant in a dark scheme driven by the harsh dynamics of high school and lethal motives.

Dead Girl Walking lyrics

[VERONICA]
I wanted someone strong who could protect me
I let his anger fester and infect me
His solution is a lie
No one here deserves to die
Except for me and the monster I created
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah!
Heads up, J.D., I’m a dead girl walking!

[ALL BUT VERONICA]
Hey, yo, Westerberg!

[VERONICA]
Can’t hide from me, I’m a dead girl walking!

[ALL BUT VERONICA]
Hey, yo, Westerberg!

[VERONICA]
And there’s your final bell
It’s one more dance and then farewell
Cheek to cheek in Hell with a dead girl walkin’!

[HEATHER MCNAMARA]
Go Rottweilers!
Here we go, here we go now!

[MS. FLEMING, spoken]
Veronica! Jason Dean told us you’d just committed suicide!

[VERONICA, spoken]
Yeah, well, he’s wrong about a lot of things

[MS. FLEMING, spoken]
I threw together a lovely tribute, ‘specially given the short notice…

[VERONICA, spoken]
Ms. Fleming, what’s under the gym?

[MS. FLEMING, spoken]
The boiler room

[VERONICA, spoken]
That’s it!

[MS. FLEMING, spoken]
Veronica, what’s going on?

[VERONICA]
Got no time to talk, I’m a dead girl walking!

[STUDENTS]
Hey yo, Westerberg!
Hey yo, Westerberg!
Tell me what’s that sound?
Here comes Westerberg
Comin’ to put you in the ground!
Go go, Westerberg!
Give a great big yell!
Westerberg will knock you out
And send you straight to Hell!

[VERONICA, spoken]
A Norweigan in the boiler room, just like your dad

[J.D., spoken]
And here I thought you’d lost your taste for faking suicides

[VERONICA, spoken]
Step away from the bomb

[J.D., spoken]
This little thing? Well, I’d hardly call it a bomb
This is to trigger the packs of thermals upstairs in the gym
Now those are bombs
People are gonna look at the ashes of Westerberg and say ‘there’s a school that self-destructed not because society didn’t care but because that school was society’
You know the only place where Heathers and Marthas can truly get along is in Heaven!

[VERONICA]
I wish your mom had been a little stronger

[J.D., spoken]
Don’t talk about my mom

[VERONICA]
I wish she stayed around a little longer

[J.D., spoken]
Stop!

[VERONICA]
I wish your dad were good!
I wish grown-ups understood!
I wish we’d met before
They convinced you life is war!
I wish you’d come with me—

[J.D., spoken]
I wish I had more TNT!

[VERONICA, spoken]
Agh!

[STUDENTS]
Hey yo, Westerberg!
Hey yo, Westerberg!
Tell me what’s that sound?
Here comes Westerberg
Comin’ to put you in the ground!
Go go, Westerberg!
Give a great big yell!
Westerberg will knock you out
And send you straight to…

[GUNSHOT]
