We are gathered here tonight
To say goodbye to a vampire
In the fog and moonlight
Here we stand ‘round the funeral pyre.

This fiend was one of the great ones
Respected by the undead nation
Legions of werewolves run while
We fly the Missing Bat Formation.

And we’ll fly!
And we’ll FLY!

We mourn our noble king tonight
Black priests finish their oration
The Honor Guard is taking flight
In the Missing Bat Formation

Our enemies caught him cold
And they cut off his ancient head
He was ruthless and so bold
Now no longer undead but truly dead dead.
Dead dead!
Our revenge will be cold to the touch
The taste of blood a sweet sensation
They will scream and bleed so much
When we fly the Missing Bat Formation.

Our revenge will be cold to the touch
The taste of blood a sweet sensation
Covens of witches dance while
We fly the Missing Bat Formation.
