The Lyrics

I love parodying Beatles songs. Takes me what, 10 minutes tops? And I'm happy with them! Yeah. And for the purposes of this parody, vampires is two syllables: 'vam-pires' not 'vam-pie-ers'. Just clearing that up, just in case.
Vampires flying in the dead of night
With their bat-like wings, they love to bite
All the time
Scare you witless when they raise their wings and start to fly

They're not stupid, won't stay in sunlight
Just keep running 'till the sun you see
All the while
Look for any late-night stores that have some garlic cheap

Vampires fly
Vampires bite
Cause quite a fright in the dark black night

Vampires hide
From sunlight
Carry a stake, not the kind you fry*

Vampires all over the streets tonight
All hanging around in groups of five
Quite a fright
They'll sneak up on you in their real quiet bat disguise
I fought one, it took three days to clean my pants of shite
I swear these marks on my neck are just mosquito bites
*I'm know the stake/steak gag has been done at least 9000 times by now, but it just popped into my head. As did the last line - ZOMG TWIST

Nothing like the so-called "sexy" one in the Twilight movie this vamp's the real deal. Good job Congener_of_Vampires

(Ages) See above, Not as strong of an entry as your other Ages entries but this one was still pretty good. Security code: SPF maybe that's what your vampire needs to go out into the sun some suntan lotion with a strong SPF

(Ages) I'm with Matthias here, because of the rhymes in the last 3 lines...not technically wrong, but they did throw me off just a bit. Well done overall, though.

short and sweet but a good effort

AGES...I liked the pairing of vampires with this mellow OS...this was nice, Conq.
Invisible Boy - February 25, 2009 - Report this comment
It was a good idea T-CoP. I liked the "garlic cheap" line.

(Ages) It was interesting, the original song is very. . .sleepy. . .

Good body but the conclusion was rough...it almost "bit". Good laughs in general. 5-4-5.

Great job, Melanie!

Funny...a Beatles song I'm not as familiar with. I enjoyed it, both for your humor and the chance to catch the song (with your lyrics) again.
Glen S - February 25, 2009 - Report this comment
Harder song that I suspected. I enjoyed the lines "Look for any late-night stores that have some garlic cheap" and your stake/steak joke. I'm a sucker for those, no matter how much they've been done before.

not very funny but liked the parody all the same
Matthias - March 12, 2009 - Report this comment
(See Above) Still not one of your best T-Cop, but it wasn't bad.
Phil Alexander - March 17, 2009 - Report this comment
I've done enough vampire parodies to enjoy them... it is hard to resist the "steak through the heart" sort of joke :-)
Claude Prez - March 19, 2009 - Report this comment
I liked the idea and it was pretty good overall. But ten minutes, tops? Don't sell yourself short; give yourself like 20 minutes next time.

Can't recall OS, but maybe you get this version when you play it backwards.
Max Power - March 27, 2009 - Report this comment
Indeed

(SOTM) ha! - conq, you had me laughing just with your candid intro comments - put me in just the jovial mood to appreciate this - quirky and funny - 555
Below Average Dave - March 31, 2009 - Report this comment
(SOTM) Have to be honest, this one was more cute than funny. . .which should never be said about a Vampire tale (funny or horror maybe, but not cute) The negative to Beatles parodies is that many don't have a lot to work with, so you have to maximize every line, which in this particular OS is hard to do, so it takes ten minutes to write, but it is actually much more difficult to turn a short simple song into Gold than it is a moderate length song with more sustaining challenge to it.

SOTM...still liked this one Conq!

There's more at steak this time... enjoyed the reread.

(SOTM) A Beatles song I am now familiar with thanks to you :) See above!

COP - "For all you do, this blood's for you".

I'll "stake" you a trip. of 5's on this one. Great timing for halloween. I liked the garlic line but, and this is petty, why would a vampire look for garlic? I thought the legned is that they avoid garlic. I could be wrong about the garlic part. But as I stated, it's just petty and does not detract from any comp point consideration on my part. The parody is decent. Fine job.

ABC(5)_U/V Fun switch on a great Beatles OS!!!...555!!!
Stuart McArthur - November 16, 2009 - Report this comment
(ABC) yes, I still like this one, VamBobpie-er (three syllables, not four) - and I swear our house has gone up in value since that new late-night garlic-shop opened on the corner
Matthias - November 16, 2009 - Report this comment
I love seeing how this one compares with your "Bloody Sick of Twilight" saga! Real vampires vs Those fake glittery kind.
Melanie Lee - November 16, 2009 - Report this comment
(ABC) This time around, although a couple lines in the last stanza were a little off-beat, I'll say your parody didn't "bite". Not bad, not bad. 555 and a garlic necklace.

Pretty good for 10 minutes worth of work! It takes me longer than that to GRILL a steak. =)
