Close to You
We should probably talk about this before the wedding.
Title text: We should probably talk about this before the wedding.

Explanation

This is Randall's version of the popular Carpenters song, "(They Long to Be) Close to You". The actual first verse goes like this:

Why do birds suddenly appear
Every time you are near?
Just like me, they long to be
Close to you

In this parody, the reason birds suddenly appear whenever the girl is near is because the girl is a zombie, and those are turkey vultures, carrion birds that prey on the flesh of dead bodies. It's probably a good idea to talk about this before the wedding, as the title text says.

Discussion

Don't think that's Danish - limbs are all squiggly, hair is different... Perhaps just unnamed zombie girl? MR (talk) 22:58, 1 March 2013 (UTC)MR

  • You're probably right. It was my best guess. (Of course, the squiggly lines could be explained as being par for zombies). Ekedolphin (talk) 04:05, 12 March 2013 (UTC)
