As New Orleans slips far away 
When the gas lights dim and the street cars fade 
When the beast within takes on a new shape 
The blood runs cold make no mistake 

You're just a vampire with a healthy appetite 
And you stay awake half the night 

A band strikes up and they're starting to play 
When the sirens wail but they're way too late 
The crowds don't see they're drunk anyway 
The inquest said it was coming her way 

You're just a vampire with a healthy appetite 
And you stay awake half the night 

Well you ran to ground as you always do 
And then they finally caught up with you 
Well they sent you down and Old Smokey was waiting but pressure 
groups being what they are these days you were released after five 
years at a funny farm in upstate bankrupt 
New York to walk the streets once more
