Dead Girl Walking is a song sung by Cheryl Blossom, Peaches 'N Cream, Sweet Pea, and Toni Topaz. It was originally written by Laurence O’Keefe and Kevin Murphy for the original production of Heathers: The Musical.

As a furious Cheryl tells Toni Topaz to leave the school by Monday, Toni gets angry and gathers Sweet Pea and Peaches and lures them into a threesome. As Sweet Pea and Peaches almost strip naked, reality dawns upon Toni and she apologizes and says she can't do it.[1]

Lyrics

Toni:
The demon queen of high school has decreed it
She says Monday, 8 am I'll be deleted
They'll hunt me down in study hall
Stuff and mount me on the wall
Thirty hours to live
How shall I spend them?

I don't have to stay and die like cattle
I could change my name and ride up to Seattle
I'll jump right on my motorbike
Or
Here's an option that I like
Spend these thirty hours getting freaky

All hope is gone
I'm a dead girl walking
I'm on your lawn
I'm a dead girl walking
Before they punch my clock
I'm snapping off your window lock
Got no time to knock
I'm a dead girl walking

Sweet Pea:
Ah Toni, Peaches, what's going on?

Toni:
Shhh

Had to see you, hope I didn't wake you
But I intend to hold you till I break you
'Cause Cheryl says I gots to go
You're my last meal on death row
Shut your mouth and lose them tighty-whities

Tonight I'm yours
I'm your dead girl walking
Go lock the doors
I'm a dead girl walking
I've got one night to kill
Before they roast me on the grill
Bow down to the will of a dead girl walking

Cheryl:
And you know, you know, you know
It's 'cause you're beautiful
You say you're numb inside
But I can't agree

Toni:
So, the world's unfair
Keep it locked out there
In here, it's beautiful
Let's make this beautiful

Peaches and Sweet Pea:
That works for me

Toni:
Full steam ahead
Take this dead girl walking

Sweet Pea
How'd you find my address?

Toni
Let's break the bed
Rock this dead girl walking

Peaches
I think you tore my mattress

Toni
No sleep tonight for you
Better chug that Mountain Dew

Sweet Pea:
Ok, ok

Toni:
Kiss away my fears
Make this whole town disappear

Peaches:
Ok, ok

Toni (Peaches and Sweat Pea):
Teach me to be brave
I am standing on my grave
No more talking
(Woah, oh, oh, oh)
Love this dead girl walking
(Woah, woah, hey, hey, yeah, yeah)
Love this dead girl walking
(Woah, woah, hey, hey, yeah, yeah)

Sweet Pea:
Love this dead girl

Toni:
Wait, wait

Peaches and Sweet Pea:
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Sweet Pea:
Ow

Peaches and Sweet Pea:
Yeah
