SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A candidate for mayor of South Dakota's largest city promises to protect it against zombies.

The Argus Leader reports that David Zokaites (zoh-KIGH'-tess) has released a video based on a song he wrote about zombies taking over Sioux Falls City Hall. The 56-year-old data analyst penned the tongue-in-cheek tune a few months to boost his campaign.

The ghoulish song goes: "Zombie undead coming our way. Evil monsters, make them pay. They want to rule our town. But they're going down, down."

As the video shows zombies wandering the streets, the song continues: "You see David he's standing tall. We'll make the zombies small. Mister Zokaites will excite us. Zombies undead won't bite us."

Zokaites says it's an allegory about the modern political climate and his mission to change it.
