  • Lyrics
  • A dinner was served for three
    At Draculas's house by the sea
    The hor d'oeurve were fine
    But I choked on my wine
    When I learned that the main course was me!
    The waitress a vampire named Perkins
    Was so very fond of small gherkins
    While serving tea
    She ate 43
    Which pickled her internal workings!
    Igor the scapels go on the left with the pitchforks
    Igor, Igor...
    What a swimmer is Dracula's daughter
    But her pool looks more red than it oughter
    The blood stains the boat
    But it's easy to float
    Because blood is much thicker than water

    INSTRUMENTAL INTERLUDE

    Dracula old friend how are things in Transylvania
    For dessert there was batwing confetti
    And the veins of a mummy named Betty
    I first frowned upon it
    But with ketchup on it
    It tasted very much like spaghetti
    Goodnight wharever you are! Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
