7 Chupacabras

From “Songs Of El Chupacabra”

Looking down at her grey skin
Thinking this might be the end
“They are looking for me baby
To my maker they might send
Misunderstandings, that’s all they know
In this great valley down below
They want to take me north to Texas
Alive or dead to a circus show”

There were seven chupacabras
At the Altar of the Goat
They were waiting for another
Eight would make an even vote
But he would not go so easy
Yet dead he finally did
And the seven chupacabras
Took another chupa home

But his girl, she still breathing
Looking down at her beau
Yelling out with chupa madness
That the humans too must go
So she took away a weapon
Started shooting aimlessly
Manage to take them all out
Killed them all so easily

There were eight chupacabras
At the Altar of the Goat
They were waiting for another
Nine would easily break the vote
But she would not go so easy
Yet dead she finally did
And eight chupacabras
Took another chupa home
