I'm a vampire, babe,
Sucking blood
From the earth
I'm a vampire, baby,
Sucking blood
From the earth.
Well, I'm a vampire, babe,
Sell you
Twenty barrels worth.

I'm a black bat, babe,
Banging on
Your window pane
I'm a black bat, baby,
Banging on
Your window pane.
Well, I'm a black bat, babe,
I need my high octane.

Good times are coming,
I hear it everywhere I go
Good times are coming,
I hear it everywhere I go.
Good times are coming,
But they sure coming slow.

I'm a vampire, babe,
Sucking blood
From the earth
I'm a vampire, baby,
Sucking blood
From the earth.
Well, I'm a vampire, babe,
Sell you
Twenty barrels worth.

Good times are coming.

    General CommentYes, It's about the oil industry. Specifically extraction and the need for oil. "Good times are comming" - That is the false hope.

    To me, it's not one of his strongest songs. I agree with the sentiment but would have hoped that Neil would have done better with it!
