Well, I never heard it before, but it sounds uncommon nonsense.

The Vampire

Once upon a midnight bite;
Held deep in fear, deep in fright;
Hidden behind unlocked doors;
Buckets and blood stains scatter the floor;
A gothic romance played out destiny;
A vampiric obsession, macabre history;
The madness, the murder, the dismay to follow;
Gave this thirst more love to swallow;
One victim tonight, one victim is all;
Entranced by love, kept safe from any fall;
Once the clock strikes, twice the bell tolls;
Twice the escape, once the head rolls;
Blood for blood, lust for lust;
Withering love decayed to dust;
Nevermore, never again;
Be still my heart, it's dead, it's dead.
