Peasants fear the mention of his name, Grown men tremble at the setting sun, O’er the Carpathian mountain range Along the forest where wild wolves run. An elegant Count who charms everyone, Whose soul’s as foul as dirt where he lays, Garlic and mirrored reflections he shuns, Symbols of Christ, the sun’s golden rays. For centuries past he’s spent his dark days Inside a casket, a hideous tomb. Pitiful lady, in blood she will pay. There at the window! Now inside her room! The Beast is within. He comes to her bed. Behold the Dragon! ‘Tis he, the Undead!
