ANCESTRAL VOICES
AH AH AH AH

AH! AH!

GOMEZ (Spoken):
Ah, the intoxicating spell of the graveyard.
Once a year when the last leaf of autumn falls,
we gather to honor the great cycle life and death.
Come,every member of our clan - living,
dead - and undecided and let us celebrate what is to be an Addams.

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

MORTICIA (Spoken):
The's the way

GOMEZ & MORTICIA:
When you're an Addams

GOMEZ:
You need to have a sense of humor

GOMEZ & MORTICIA:
When you're an Addams

MORTICIA:
You need to have a taste for death

GOMEZ & MORTICIA:
Who cares about the world outside
And what it wants from you
When you're and Addams
You do what Addams always do!

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):
Several times a day

ADDAMS FAMILY:
You're happy when your toes are in the mud

FESTER & 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

Just pour a potion

When you're an Addams
You have to really stir the pot

FESTER:
So keep your sunshine
And keep your glee

GOMEZ:
Country music and Tennessee

WEDNESDAY:
Keep you laughter

GRANDMA:
And MTV

ADDAMS FAMILY:
And all will be all right
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 on this special night, beneath our Family Tree, we summon our beloved Ancestors.

ANCESTORS:
One torn asunder
Down six feet under
We get to gather here

Bled from whatever

MALE ANCESTORS ONE & TWO:
Called now to reappear

Every cadaver
Start the palaver
Once in an Addams year

Hold your decaying
Hear what we're saying
Time now to give a cheer

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:

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-

LURCH:
Ughhh

ALL:
Die!
