Well, I look around and I
Can barely recall
That I had a life before
The day I heard the Call,
Now I’ve been Chosen...
Didn’t get no chance to choose.

I’ve got those probably dying before I turn twenty,
All the undead come and look at me funny,
You’ll call me a corpse before you call me ‘honey’
Vampire Slayer Blues.

You say that I’m morbid, that I’m
Becoming obsessed.
Well, if you had my Calling,
You can bet you’d be depressed,
‘Cause it’s no picnic --
Even if I win, I lose.

I’ve got those chain mail is not coming back into fashion,
I’d rather be shopping than out monster mashing,
And carnage is not that conducive to passion
Vampire Slayer Blues.

I went to my Watcher, he’s a reasonable guy;
I said, ‘Sir, will I make it?’
He said, ‘No dear, you’ll die.’
I said, ‘That’s not inspiring,’ he said,
‘True, but you see -- I know that it’s tiring
But fighting and dying is your destiny!’

(spoken) Jerk.

I can’t find a boyfriend, I keep,
Keep breaking my dates.
On my last Career Day, my
Results came back ‘minion of fate’.
There’s no retirement,
And you’ve never paid your dues.

I’ve got those vampires and zombies and werewolves, oh my,
Why shouldn’t I live before I have to die,
So pass me that stake and kiss evil goodbye,
Vampire Slayer Blues!
