The Lyrics

You just have to sing the word "Vampire" as though it has three syllables, sort of "Vamp-ayer", and it all goes swimmingly...
There's a kid who's seen Buffy, so he wants to be a slayer
He's just about to find out that life just isn't fair
'Cause he says "Ha! Ha! Got silver bullets in my gun"
Well, that don't worry me, 'cause I ain't a werewolf, son
Sometimes I wonder which artery to choose
'Cause there ain't no cure for the vampire blues

My manservant Igor tells me I'm a garloholic
The only vampire in history addicted to garlic
But I ain't eating pesto, and I don't like mayonnaise
And that red stuff ain't tomato in my pasta bolognaise
Maybe I'll go veggie.. but hell, what's the use
'Cause there ain't no cure for the vampire blues

Well, I see a little article that gets my attention
It says that I should get myself a stakeholder pension
I'm only a thousand - ain't ready to retire, Giles
And I would be batty not to get those frequent flyer miles
Now I'm getting healthy drinking carotid juice
But there ain't no cure for the vampire blues

I thought this genre was sucked dry of bloody fun, apparently I was dead wrong. 555 heart-bpm (and not fading).

Funny. And true--just ask Dick Cheney.

Phil, you probably aren't too conversant with American Baseball mythology or the nicknames of superstars from past days so I guess the reference I'm going to make now to the "Slay-Hey Kid" won't mean diddly to you. But I'm going to use it anyway because, what the hell, this is my comment space and I can say mostly what I want. They used to call the great Willie Mays the "Say-Hey Kid" back in the 1950's...He could do it all, Run, Field, Hit...although I understand his parodies often lacked proper pacing. Unlike yours...5's...boy, that was a long walk for a short pay-off, wasn't it?

Excellent Phil!

Thanks, everyone - I rather like this one, too: managed to squeeze in loads of in-jokes and puns. It's an easy one to play, too, so I may give that a go :-)
