I Lurk in the Shadows
lyrics 2004 by Dr. H. Paul Shuch
sung to the tune of "We Kiss in the Shadows" from The King and I
Copyright © 1951 by Richard Rodgers

I lurk in the shadows
And howl at the moon.
The night's a delight,
But over too soon.

I climb in my coffin
And cover my head
To hide from the dawn,
Like all the undead

To walk in the daylight
Would be a delight.
If you saw me, you'd die of fright.
So I am contented
To be who I am.
Behold, as I unfurl my cape,
Your neck -- how I long for that nape.
