Whoooahh! Bite! Whoooah! Bite!
Release the bats! Release the bats!
Don't tell me that it doesn't hurt
a hundred fluttering in your skirt
don't tell me that it doesn't hurt


My baby is alright
she doesn't mind a bit of dirt
she says "horror vampire bat bite"
she says "horror vampire
How I wish those bats would bite"
Whoooah! Bite


Release the bats! Release the bats!
Pump them up and explode the things
Her legs are chafed by sticky wings
(sticky sticky little things)


My baby is a cool machine
she moves to the pace of her generator,
says damn that sex supreme
she says damn that horror bat
sex vampire, cool machine


Release the bats! Release the bats!
Release them!


Baby is a cool machine
she moves to the pulse of a generator
she says damn that sex supreme
she says, she says damn that horror bat
sex horror sx bat sex horror sex vampire
sex bat horror vampire sex
coll machine
horror bat. Bite!
Cool Machine. Bite!
Sex vampire. Bite!

    General CommentHow can there be no comments? This is an absolute classic, less than 3 minutes of pure energy. What's it about? Bats! And sex vampires. What's not to like?

    General CommentOk, folks, I see a few comments but no one putting forth a possible meaning?

    Use your imaginations...It's in there. Baby is a cool machine, right? A machine for what? "Release the bats!" From where? "A hundred fluttering in your skirt", "her legs are chafed by sticky wings"...Sex vampire, horror bat, she moves to the pulse of a generator...What image does that conjure?

    It seems obvious (and, yeah, a little sick) that his "baby" has bats in her vaginal "cave" that she is releasing. Don't tell me that it doesn't hurt, indeed!

    General Commentisn't her comparing his experience of heroin with sex, through imagery of seductive vampires ...?
    (then the cool machine would be a syringe)
