Cats, rats and slimy toads
Get under my feet in these demon-filled roads
And spiders in sizes you don’t want to see
All seem to wait especially for me.
As carefully I pick my route through them all
Revolted as I am at these lowly thrall.
For I’m on the way to the Halloween Ball
Where werewolves and witches will all fill the hall
And we will make merry on All Hallows’ Eve
As blood from our victims we will relieve.
For I am as they are, accursed to roam
Showing only on this day in the late twilight gloam.
I was a man who researched into Vlad
The things that I saw, so evil and bad
And Dracula found me and drew of my blood
Yet e’en as a vampire I try to do good.
But this night is special and we all get to feast
I’m now just like they are, a blood-drinking beast.
