From the film, La Zone, http://www.elvisss.com/LAZONE

La Zone is an art-house short zombie film made by French artists Le Contremaître et sa Contremaîtresse and Cetusss. While shooting the film at an art residency deep in the woods of Mont St. Michel in France, the filmmakers spent their down time listening to “We Will Never Be Discovered,” the new LP by The City and Horses. One of the songs on the album, “Dum Dee Dum,” a sugary sweet lament about unrequited love sung by indie songstress Katie Costello, made for an amusing contrast to the artists’ zombie surroundings. In between takes, the filmmakers decided to take advantage of this amusing juxtaposition and made music video for the song.

La Zone will be released in spring 2012. More information about the film can be found at www.elvisss.com.

Lyrics:

Write me a song
I don’t care if it’s short
I don’t care if it’s long
Just write me a song

About my pretty dress
About the pretty mess
My life has become
Write a tune that I can hum
One that goes
Dum-de-dum-dum-dum

Write me a song
I don’t care if you’re short
I don’t care if you’re strong
Just write me a song

About how my job’s a bore
And how I sweep the floor up
Crumb by crumb
Write a tune that I can hum
One that goes
Dum-de-dum-dum-dum

I’m tired of begging you
I’m tired of egging you on
I’m tired of pegging
Pegging you all wrong

Write me a song
I don’t care if it’s short
I don’t care if it’s long
Just write me a song

About my job at Sheetz
And how I clean the seats off
Crumb by crumb
Write a tune that I can hum
One that goes
Dum-de-dum-dum-dum
