Meet a man from history,
Who's been misunderstood,
He was known as Dracula,
But tried to do some good.
He ruled with fists of iron,
To subdue the peasant class,
And if you stepped out of line,
You got a tree stuck up your....

Vlad! Vlad! Vlad the impaler!
Prince of Romania,
King of my heart,
Six stake makers kept on retainer,
Why's he so wonderful?
Where do you start?

Always take your hat off,
When you're visiting his place,
Or he'll nail it to your head,
Before he laughs into your face.
All those bodies up on stakes,

Inside a great big copper pot.
Hey... Hey... Hey...

Close to a Monastery,
It was one that he had founded,
So how's that for irony?
Buried in an unmarked grave,
And lost to history,
Save for all these gory stories,
That have made him legendary.
His... Name.. Was...
