Last week I heard an American singer do a parody of "Rolling Home to Old Maui" with words about vampires. He's gone back home and I can't get in touch. Anybody know it, got the words and know who wrote it?

I don't generally go for parodies but this one was genuinely funny.

Nobody?

The refrain ends "...we live nocturnally".

Sounds like "Filk" music, traditionally (since the 60's) sung by and around science fiction/fantasy fans. They take known tunes and put new words to them with sf/fantasy themes. Seek ye sf conventions, look ye among sf fans, and ye may find it!

It's not the same Vampire Shanty that I sing, although it sounds like it'll be worth the hunt (or maybe there's too much at stake?! - let's hope the quest isn't in vein!)...
