Dead Girl Walking (Reprise)

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!
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

Come on, Westerberg!
Here we go, here we go now!

MS. FLEMING, spoken

Veronica! Jason Dean told me you'd just committed suicide!

VERONICA, spoken

Yeah, well, he's wrong about a lot of things

MS. FLEMING, spoken

Oh, well, I threw together a lovely tribute, especially considering 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

Step away from the bomb

J.D., spoken

This little thing? I'd hardly call this a bomb. This is just to trigger the packs of thermals upstairs in the gym. Those are bombs. People are gonna see the ashes of Westerberg High School and they're gonna think 'there's a school that self-destructed not because society doesn't care but because that school was society'. The only place that Heathers and Marthas can get along is in Heaven!

VERONICA

I wish your mom had been a little stronger
I wish she stayed around a little longer
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!

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…
