It isn't right, it isn't fair!

...that hydrant wasn't there...

(BROOM DANCE)

...so many years ago...

Let me rest in peace!

...take my love and bury it...

...you got a willing slave...

...let me rest in peace...
...can't find my sweet release...

Why won't you...

...let me rest in peace!

Later, Anya, Xander and Giles are walking down the street discussing the situation, while around them workers and citizens go about their daily lives through song and dance.
WOMAN

I've been having a bad, bad day
Come on won't you put that pad away?

I'm asking you, please, no!
It isn't right, it isn't fair!
There was no parking anywhere
I think that hydrant wasn't there

Why can't you let it go?
I think I've paid more than my share
I'm just a poor girl, don't you care?
Hey, I'm not wearing underwear...

Rest In Peace
That night Buffy visits Spike at his crypt. When he realizes she has only come to pump him for information, Spike is pissed and reluctantly sings his feelings.
SPIKE

I died so many years ago
You can make me feel
Like it isn't so
And why you come to be with me
I think I finally know...

You're scared, ashamed of what you feel
And you can't tell the ones you love
You know they couldn't deal
Whisper in a dead man's ear
It doesn't make it real!

That's great, but I don't wanna play
'Cause being with you touches me
More than I can say
And since I'm only dead to you
I'm saying stay away...

And let me rest in peace!

Let me rest in peace
Let me get some sleep
Let me take my love and bury it
In a hole six foot deep
I can lay my body down
But I can't find my sweet release...
So let me rest in peace!

You know you got a willing slave
And you just love to play the thought
That you might misbehave
But 'til you do, I'm telling you
Stop visiting my grave!
And let me rest in peace!

(Now in the graveyard, they approach pallbearers carrying a coffin)

I know I should go
But I follow you like a man possessed
There's a traitor here beneath my breast
And it hurts me more than you've ever guessed
If my heart could beat, it would break my chest
But I can see you're unimpressed
So leave me be...

(Spike leaps onto the coffin as it is being carried)

And let me rest in peace
Let me get some sleep
Let me take my love and bury it
In a hole six foot deep
(Spike vamps up, terrifies the mourners and grabs the priest)

I can lay my body down
But I can't find my sweet release
(Buffy pulls him away from the priest and they fall into the grave,
their faces inches apart)

Let me rest in peace!
Why won't you let me rest in peace?

Buffy leaps out of the grave and runs off.

SPIKE

So...you're not staying, then?
