Welcome to my shelter
there’s room for just one more
the bed’s already taken
you can sleep there on the floor
I went and scraped off “public”
from the sign above the door
welcome welcome to my shelter

Welcome to my shelter
it’s a cozy place to hide
just play the game my way
And we will both be satisfied
unless you’d rather play
In the apocalypse outside
welcome welcome to my shelter

The rules are very elegant and clear
just do whatever I say
or your ass is out of here
I’m sure there’s nothing else I need define
unless you miss the message
of a loaded AK-9

Welcome to my shelter
I’ll have steak and escargot
for wine a nice chianti
or perhaps the good merlot
I hear your gruel’s delicious
but I really wouldn’t know
welcome welcome to my shelter

This small reverse of fortune cannot last
we’ll hide out in my hideout
until what’s passed is past
you seem to be an entertaining jack
and if supplies run low
you’ll make a tasty little snack

Welcome to my shelter
secure from the unknown
you’ll have to make the best of it
so please don’t piss and moan
you’re always free to go and find
a shelter of your own
welcome welcome to my shelter
