I haven't seen a ray of sun
Since 1869,
For vampires know a secret-
Blood tastes better by moonshine

So, in the midnight moonlight
I wrap up in my cape
And through the town I creep-
No, no one can escape

This vampire so thirsty
For a drop of blood-just one-
To suck from something human
'Fore the rising sun.
