The Cemetery Swing (Song Lyrics)

The Cemetery Swing Song Lyrics

This is the fourth song / set of lyrics for my “These are a Few of My Scariest Things” album. Musical style for this one is along the lines of the Stray Cats, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy.

Verse I

It was Halloween night in sleepy town USA
Kids were asleep and the babysitter on her way
As soon as she arrived, My baby and I
Took to the street for a midnight drive
Rolled the top down, music loud, singing jump jive and wail

Verse II

Well it wasn’t long ‘fore we passed by the ol’ graveyard
Saw shadows grooving to the sounds of a steel guitar
We pulled off to the right, And witnessed the sight
Of a bunch of scary monsters getting down in the night
That’s when my baby turned to me and said it’s time to get a little wild

Verse III

Creature from the Black Lagoon was watching the gate
Looked us up and down and said “hey you two walk this way”
It wasn’t long, Band played a song
That got the whole crowd hopping and singing along
I pulled my baby close to me and we did the cemetery swing

Chorus I

We went swing, swing, swing
While the Wolfman jived
Elvira over in the corner
Getting down with Frankenstein
The whole place was shaking
While the band kept playing
The cemetery swing

Verse IV

Now it’s 3 AM and the party is winding down
Count’s taking a nap and the Mummy’s passed out on the ground
It was just about time, To say our goodbyes
When the Invisible man shouted “one more time”
My baby grabbed me by the arm and said let’s do the cemetery swing

Chorus II

We went swing, swing, swing
While the Bride of Frankie dipped
Bunch of zombie’s getting rowdy
In front of Dr. Jekyll’s crypt
We’re gonna keep on going
Till the sun starts showing
Spin the night away
Over empty graves
Stay on our feet
Dancing to the beat
Of the cemetery swing
The cemetery swing
The cemetery swing


You Suck the Life Out of Me (Song Lyrics)

You Suck the Life Out of Me

This is the third song (lyrics only) on my “These are a Few of My Scariest Things” album. Two more songs to go.

Verse I

You move
Swiftly in the Night
Seeking your first bite
Spreading this fright

All over me
I’m down on my knees
Begging you please
You’re such a tease

Cuz you thrill me
Tempt me
Seduce me
I can’t see straight

I’m on fire
The one thing
That you won’t give

And I can’t take it anymore I’ve gotta retreat
But you’ve got a hold of me and won’t let me leave
My body keeps on aching while you’re taking everything that you please

You suck the life right out of me

Verse II

You claim
Whatever you want
Whenever you like
I think this just might

Be the end
Of all I have known
And all that I’ll be
Baby can’t you see

That I’m dying
Lying here
With nothing left

While you devour
My every hour
The sands of time
Are flying by

And every time that I escape you pull me right back
You play the part of predator and I’m just your snack
You bind me with your magic touch and make me feel like I’m going to scream

You suck the life right out of me


Forget about the monsters that hide in the night
The scariest of all of them stays out in plain sight
She’ll cast her spell by telling you the things you want to hear
But soon enough your lust turns to fear

Verse III

Oh you steal
(Bit by bit)
Make me feel
(From tip to tip)
Like I’m your last meal
(Drip by drip)
What the hell is your deal
(Losing my grip)

Oh lady
I’m going crazy
No one can save me
From this love so deadly

So I guess I’ll just give in to your twisted fantasies
You suck the life right out of me

My Love is Your Disease (Song Lyrics)

My Love is Your Disease

This is the second song on my “These are a Few of My Scariest Things” album (in development). While I’m only posting the lyrics at this time, I hope to record the actual songs sometime in 2014 and post them on my website.

Verse I

What big eyes you have
The better to see me with
You look right through my soul
My secrets all unfold

And what a big heart you have
The better to love me with
Through all the highs and lows
You keep my passion lit


Why do you stay with me
Am I the best you can do
Are you addicted to the pain
That I always put you through

Tell me that it’s all right
You’ll stay by my side
Keep lying to me
My love is your disease
My love is your disease

Verse II

What big arms I have
The better to hold you close
Whenever you’re with me
I don’t feel so alone

And what big teeth I have
I’m sorry I hurt you dear
It wasn’t my intent
To fill your life with fear

Chorus II

Why do you stay with me
When you deserve so much more
Than all the anger that I bring
When I walk through your door

Tell me to go away
That you’ll kill me if I stay
Cut these ties so I can leave
My love is your disease
My love is your disease


And in the shadows I will bleed
Jagged tears while I’m on my knees
Staring at the moon above
Hate this monster I’ve become

Wasn’t all that long ago
You and I, we had it all
Now our story’s come to pass
Worn out pages burned to ash

Verse III

Why won’t you let me be
Give up on shattered dreams
Lost forever is the soul
Of the man you used to love

A beast is all that remains
Silver bullet to my brain
Only way to make you see
My love is your disease
My love is your disease

I Want a Little Horror (Song Lyrics)

I Want a Little Horror

“God rest her soul” says the Priest as he hands over a plain, white urn to a man in his mid 30’s.  The man returns home and places the urn in front of a shrine that features pictures of his dead wife along with several candles and ceremonious objects.  He then proceeds to perform a ritual to bring his wife back to life (think Big Bad Voodoo Daddy meets Rob Zombie)…

Verse I

What’s that I see creepin’ in the dark, Paranormal beauty pulling at my heart
Am I in danger or am in love, My knees are shaking but my head says go on
And so I
Step forward with lust in my eyes, My gaze fluctuating from your face to your thighs
I can’t help but think you’ll be the death of me, But I don’t care just take me


I want a little horror, In my life
A slice of danger you can cut with a knife
Give it to me raw
On a dark, scary night
Cause I need a little horror in my life

Verse II

I follow you here, I follow you there, You keep on disappearing leavin’ me in despair
This obsession of mine, it’s out of control, And it’s cutting me straight to the bone

Chorus – Repeat

Verse III

Last night I woke up in bed, Could have sworn something was breathing on my neck
There wasn’t a ghoul or goblin in sight, When suddenly you appeared by my side

And now I’ve got a little horror, In my life
A ghostly vixen who haunts me at night
Oh, I’ve given up my sleep, And even my soul
To get a little horror I want you to know
That I’d
Slit my wrists and let them bleed
Torch my body doused in gasoline
Hang myself off an old wood chair
Just to keep you near

Cause’ I want a little horror
I need a little horror
I’ve got to have some horror
I want a little horror in my life!
