Eat, my child, there's food abundant
All through the night.
Necks to bite and limbs redundant
All through the night.
While the world sleeps unsuspecting
We undead are resurrecting,
Vampires, ghouls and ghosts collecting
Bite after bite.

Hurry, child, we must be gone
By dawn's early light.
For we cannot carry on
Except through the night.
Creatures of the dark are we
And subject to such enmity
We're bound to spend eternity
Alive just at night.

All of you among the living
Turn now in fright,
For there will be no forgiving
By dark of night.
When your world is torn asunder,
Earthquake, famine, fire and thunder,
We will rest secure down under
All through the night.
