about

these vampires will not scare you. they will just make you fall in love with them. but they avoid you, cause you smell bad.

(...I like my squeaky voice here. I pitched this song because I had recorded it too slow.)

lyrics

The vampires come
The vampires come
They come to have a party
They’ re dressed in white
They’ re so polite
I’d like them to invite me

The vampires dance
They winsomely dance
They know how to impress me
And these charming lips
Of Roberta Smisss
If they only could undress me

I sent her roses from my bed
But with a twinkle she regrets:
“I won’t fall in love with a garlic clove.
I won’t fall in love with a garlic clove.”

The vampires booze
And how they can booze
They know this from the cradle
They’re cheating cards
with the spiders from mars
and drink them under the table

The vampires sing
The vampires swing
Oh, Roberta- please confuse me!
I`ll be lost in hell
I’m underneath your spell
If you only could abuse me

I’m so lonely in my bed
I’d like to kiss the Dead instead
But they won’t make love to a garlic clove
Won’t make love to a garlic clove

I’d like to join their company
But they are keeping clear of me
They won’t fall in love with a garlic clove
They’ ll never be in love with a garlic clove.
(oohoohoohooohoooo....)
