NUR EIN XV - Chupacabra

Post by thirdcatmusic »

Third Cat - "Chupacabra"

challenge: the two instruments are one synth patch and one 808 drum machine.

neighbors' goats sucked to the bone
everybody's scared to be alone
bodies pile, rumors fly
i know the truth and it makes me cry

it's my girlfriend
she's a chupacabra
she's so beautiful i pretend
i don't see it:
blood stains on the carpet
goat brains on the wall
i can't blame her
i know it's not her fault
it's just her nature after all

sneaking out on a pitch black night
planting evidence so she's alright
I make it look like some kind of beast
no one will know it's my girl who feasts

it's my girlfriend
she's a chupacabra
she's so beautiful i pretend
i don't see it:
blood stains on the carpet
goat brains on the wall
i can't blame her
i know it's not her fault
it's just her nature after all

it's my girlfriend
she's a chupacabra

I promised everything to you
Still it wasn't enough
I gave you all I had to give
I gave away my trust

I didn't know what you would take
For you are a chupacabra
I have to pay for my mistakes
For you are a chupacabra

So now I'm staring at the sun
There's nothing more I can do
I put the bullet in the gun
I know you hate me but I still love you

I didn't know what you would take
For you are a chupacabra
I have to pay for my mistakes
For you are a chupcabra
I didn't know, I did not know
You are a chupacabra
You are a chupacabra

Chupacabra - Inflatable Vegetables

She’s been weeping all evening...

Through the dark back alley doorway
Find the club where cryptids lurk
Downing wine and cheap spaghetti
Or dance before they go to work

When I take my set breaks -- I hang out at the tables
With tear stained or shredded napkins, oh

She’s been weeping all evening -- Fresh from Puerto Rico
I try to understand her with my lousy high school Spanish

Chupacabras
No entiendo tus palabras [I don’t understand your words]
¿Por qué lloras tanto? [Why are you crying so much?]
¿No te gusta mi canto? [Don’t you like my singing?]
Chupacabras
Niña reptil y macabra [Reptilian and macabre girl]
¿Cómo puedo ayudarte a parar? [How can I help you stop?]

Through the rest of dinner rush, I
Sing her songs of sleeping goats
Sneaking through the underbrush
And sucking blood out of their throats

When I take my next break -- I hang out at her table
And replace her tear-stained napkins, oh

PC - CH

The club floor is soaking wet
She hasn’t stopped crying yet
The other patrons are upset
And they’re staring at me threateningly

She’s a sodden scaly mess
Mascara on her dress
And the manager insists
I have to take her home with me

Balance Lost

Life's pretty relaxed when you're a goat
Living in a kennel somewhere remote
People come to visit cos they want to go
Into the deep dark caves to see glow worms that glow

I went to see the dentist down Te Kuiti way
Cos I've got a sweet tooth starting to decay
She said you've gotta stop sucking Chupa Chups all day
But they're my favourite thing, man I said "No way!"

Everyone's got a weakness
Just gimme more of the sweetness
Everyone's got a weakness
I'll take it intravenous

I've got apple and lime, strawberry and cola
I can't stop licking lollies over and over
Til I got so much sugar I lost my composure
And the petting zoo keeper had to shut my enclosure
Oh no!

Everyone's got a weakness
Just gimme more of the sweetness
Everyone's got a weakness
Just gimme more of the sweetness

Chupacabra
-Nuke Skybaster reporting for DUTY!!!

Drop bear, kracken, yeti, jackalope and manticore
Yowie, beast of Bodmin, basilisk, bunyip, centaur

All these mythical creatures
With their magical features
Have one thing in common
I'm sure that they are things I’m more likely to see
Than the girl for me.

Asgard, Brahmapura, Heaven, Hell, Cloud Cuckoo Land
Nania, El Dorado, Middle Earth and Alderaan
Gonna plan at vacation
At a mythic location
Book it now at the Travel Mart
‘Cos I will never get a reservation in my true love’s heart

Woe is me
Woe is me

I'm going down to the bridge to sigh
And let the tears flow from my eyes
Go below where the trolls reside

Chupacabra
Chupacabra
Under the bridge I'm all alone
Under the bridge in my new home
You picked the wrong note, billy goat
Chupacabra

Jon Eric - Chupacabra

Chupacabra chupa, chupacabra [repeat throughout as ostinato]

He takes kids

You better huddle your family close, ‘mano
Calamity flows, autocrat scrambles for those bravos
No boogeyman can hold a candle to man
When you dance through the shadow he casts on the land
It’s a failure of the Forum, decorum can’t adjudicate
He doesn’t understand “¡Ayúdame!”
So watch your six in the pueblos, the campos, the skids
Goat sucker, motherfucker takes kids

He takes kids
¡Ayúdame!
He takes kids
¡Ayúdame!

A ding-a-ling, counterfeit cannibal king
Only acts like he's happy when you're kissing the ring
The jerk lurks in the shadows, he works in the gray
He circles the night sky and tells you it’s day
Percolate a narrative and hope it’ll play
But the quirks of his ego won’t permit him to say
The G.O.A.T. of unbridled ids
Goat sucker, motherfucker takes kids

He takes kids
¡Ayúdame!
He takes kids
¡Ayúdame!

He takes kids
He takes kids

Chupacabra - Brown Word and the Big Whine (shadow entry)

In the old days there were tales of a creature so vicious
That on moonlit nights it would come
And suck all the insides out of the goats
And leave them lying empty in the fields

Chupacabra, that's what my mama said
Gonna make the boys cry, and so I did
Mother in her platforms
Mother with her pistol
Feeding little billy goats to her kid

Rolling down the street I am the talk of the town
Pretend I'm in the movies with the top down
Cherry cola sunglasses feeling cool as hell
Thought I saw you dancing, lemme ring your bell

Chupacabra, that's what the doctor said
Make a grown man cry, and so I did
Doctor such a smart man
He make a hundred grand
Gonna write a book with what was in my head

Rolling down the street I am the talk of the town
Pretend I'm in the movies with the top down
Velveteen bustier feeling cool as hell
Caught you looking handsome let me ring your bell

Just when you thought you saw it all
Here comes the night the shadows fall
Oh lemme get a look at you
Just when you thought you saw it all
Here comes the night the shadows fall
Oh lemme get a look at ya
Before I sink my teeth in ya

Chupacabra, my baby said it once
Make the old men cry, it's what I done
Alligator jumpsuit
Carrying my bumbershoot
Never let 'em catch you with the Mythical One
YYYYYeeeeeaaaaahhhhh boy, I tell ya!

Chupacabra
see-man-ski

I can jump into a mystic hole
become the rightful queen of goats
headbutting makes a major big bang
I can make it rain goats all across the land

I can't get away from the Chupacabra
hiding in the background
like a sneaky little murderer
no I can't get away from the Chupacabra
it's sucking me dry
sucking me dry
sucking me

sacrificing for demonic cause
I can defy newtons law
licking bacon gets me into outta space
I'll even pop around just to trash your place

I can't get away from the Chupacabra
hiding in the background
like a sneaky little murderer
no I can't get away from the Chupacabra
it's sucking me dry
sucking me dry
sucking me

Challenge: the two instruments are a guitar and the ableton midi instrument "Violin Section Legato.adg".

The guitar sounds weird I'm aware, the pick hitting the strings was coming through really loud on every strum in my very bad guitar recording set up, so I ended up chopping the front off each strum and cutting and pasting from the middle of the sustain. Can you tell I don't really know what I'm doing recording guitar? :|
To add another unnecessary challenge to myself, I recorded one vocal track. No harmonies, no double tracking, no overdubs. Given that the main criticisms of my first two songs have been vocals, and my own lack of confidence in my voice, it's a bold strategy.

Long liner notes about this song:
Spoiler
Show
The myth of Chupacabra originated from Madelyne Tolentino, who described the first sighting of the monster and it's attributes. All subsequent sightings of and descriptions of the beast follow on from the details given in her initial report. In his excellent book "Tracking the Chupacabra" Benjamin Radford concluded that the description Madelyne gave was incredibly close to the character of Sil from the movie "Species", released a matter of weeks before her sighting of the Chupacabra. Not only had Madelyne seen this film, but in interviewing Tolentino and looking at her past statements, Radford discovered that Tolentino actually thought the events in the film were real and in fact "believed that the creatures and events she saw in Species were happening in reality in Puerto Rico at the time". She said in a 1996 interview "I watched the movie and wondered 'My god! How can they make a movie like that, when these things are happening in Puerto Rico?'"

For some reason the Chupacabra myth got me thinking about mental health. A lot of mental health conditions boil down to your brain convincing you of something that isn't real - whether that's anxiety making you catastrophize or anorexia distorting body image or schizophrenia making you hear voices etc etc. There was a quote from Madelyne Tolentino describing her experience of seeing the chupacabra for the first time as "real and unreal at the same time" that really struck me and I thought resonated with my own experiences with anxiety, and trying to pull myself out of thought spirals. So I basically wrote a song using the Chupacabra, and Madelyne Tolentino, as mascots for mental health. I've sprinkled in some quotes and details - the smell of sulphur was reported by Madelyne at the site of the Chupacabra sighting, and she described its movement as skipping or floating. (Benjamin Radford: "I asked Madelyne how it could be both skipping and not touching the ground, but did not get a clarifying answer")

The repetition in the second half of the song, with the lyrics circling variations around the phrase "these things are really happening" with the melodramatic violin parts swelling underneath, was meant to try and capture some sort of essence of an anxiety attack, of getting stuck in a thought spiral and feeling overwhelmed.
The Lowest Bitter - Chupacabra

A smell of sulphur
we're all going to hell
if we're not already there
"real and unreal at the same time"
skipping and floating
and we're all going to hell
if we're not already there
"how can they make a movie like that
when these things are really happening?"
"how can they make a movie like that
when these things are really happening?"

and just like Madelyne
a Chupacabra in my mind
but these things are really happening
real and unreal at the same time
a beast inside your mind
these things are really happening
oh believe me Madelyne
skipping or floating through my mind
yeah these things are really happening
real and unreal at the same time
a sulphurous stain upon the mind
I think it's really happening
they tell us there's no monster hiding outside
Chupacabra devours our minds
and I can't stop it happening
and I can't stop it happening
and I can't stop it happening
and I can't stop it happening
and I can't stop it happening

Me muevo solo de noche
Ha pasado mucho tiempo desde que sentí amor

Te escondes en las mismas sombras
Ha pasado mucho tiempo desde que te vi

Te ries

No sonríes para nadie
¿Me extrañas? Te extraño

Chupacabra - Frankie Big Face

I am lonely
I am sad
I hide in the shadows
It has been a long time since I have seen anyone

I eat
I drink
I move only at night
It has been a long time since I have felt love

It has been a long time since I have felt love
I am chupacabra
I am chupacabra

You are lonely
You are sad
You hide in the same shadows
It has been a long time since I have seen you

You laugh
You dream
You smile for no one
Do you miss me? I miss you

It has been a long time since I have felt love
I am chupacabra
I am chupacabra

You are goat
I am chupacabra
We will have a beautiful wedding

Vom Vorton

With bonus gang vocals from Ben, owl, mo and Zoe.

I tried to write a song that met the title without having any chupacabra content. Did I succeed? You decide! And if not, it doesn't matter because I'm not in competition.


I can see from your face
that you don’t know this place
And I want to help you on your way
But while my advice
is clear and concise
it may not improve your day:

“You can read the stars
or follow the map
whatever gets you through
I’d love to stop and help you out
but I’m just as lost as you”

You whistle a tune
From the past
As cars drive by
Brother, it’s getting late
But if you Choose
a path that
Can’t be followed
Brother you will have to wait

You don’t frown or swear
And I see no despair
As you weigh up your next big move
I try to impart that
you should follow your heart
But it depends what you have to prove

“You can head downhill
or always turn right
whatever gets you through
I’d love to stop and help you out
but I’m just as lost as you”

You whistle a tune
From the past
As cars drive by
Brother, it’s getting late
But if you Choose
a path that
Can’t be followed
Brother you will have to wait

Chupacabra
Rob From Amersfoort
{shadow}

locked up in a cave
deep underground
no sunlight
only creepy sounds

I know I’m not handsome
scare people away
sitting in the corner
nothing to say

silenced by the crowd
a slow demise
what did I do wrong
a human in disguise

hey, I'm not the Chupacabra
get me out of here
hey, I'm not the Chupacabra
have no fear!

my tail between my legs
my hands are tied
dying a slow death
losing all my pride

sick of the monotonous days
sick of the monotonous days

hey, I'm not the Chupacabra
get me out of here
hey, I'm not the Chupacabra
have no fear!

too tired to sleep
too sad to cry
too frustrated to scream
too sick to die

Chupacabra (shadow entry)
by Lichen Throat

Strike a match to light a candelabra,
Step out into the night.
I am looking for a chupacabra,
Quivering with fright.
I had a goat that died two weeks ago,
Without apparent cause.
I have no proof, but I think I know;
It’s a monster with six claws.
I see marks on the fence
Where the creature came right through.
It is just common sense,
So why don’t you think it’s true?
Run away, run away,
If you’re not as brave as me.
Don’t reject what I say,
Or I’ll know your mind’s not free.

I brought out my veterinarian,
Who said it was old age.
He looked like a wimpy librarian;
I kicked him out in rage.
It wasn’t wolves; it wasn’t coyotes.
It wasn’t a disease.
I know there’s a monster you don’t see,
Lurking in the trees.
I see marks on the fence
Where the creature came right through.
It is just common sense,
So why don’t you think it’s true?
Run away, run away,
If you’re not as brave as me.
Don’t reject what I say,
Or I’ll know your mind’s not free.

I know the teens go drinking
Where my fence was scratched,
But that don’t mean a monster
Ain’t seeking goats to snatch.

I heard about a cow that died last spring,
And a sheep three years back.
These can’t be coincidental things;
We’re all under attack.
If you don’t help me hunt this monster down,
I’ll know you’re on its side,
Just like all those losers back in town
Who toss my evidence aside.
I see marks on the fence
Where the creature came right through.
It is just common sense,
So why don’t you think it’s true?
Run away, run away,
If you’re not as brave as me.
Don’t reject what I say,
Or I’ll know your mind’s not free.

Chupacabra - Jules Iolyn

Do you see what I see lately?
I’ve been thinking you amaze me

Few signs of you being lazy
Was I the reason we failed greatly?

It was both, not you, not just me
The details are literally hazy

Complacency set in
Without us ever noticing
It’s funny how quick it goes
Here then nobody knows
Good while it lasted
Glad that I had it

Those are my feelings today
They change day by day
They change lanes. And veins
And I sort through and keep the gains
Of which there does exist

Do you see what I see clearly?
I allowed you to steal from me
Not money, not cars, not jewelry
Rather, some dignity

I’m so glad you’re gone, I can restart
Yet, I’ll always know your body by heart

Do you see what I see lately?
I’ve been thinking I amaze me

Bring on whatever will face me
Not really but I guess we shall see

Chupacabra - The Serviettes

They call me a monster but I don't know
Ain't everyone just trying to survive?
A story to tell your little ones in darkest night
Just doing what it takes to survive

I'm so lonely, I just need a friend
It's not really hard to comprehend
Why I feel so much antipathy
When I hear you call me...

Chupacabra, Chupacabra
Entonces, ¿por qué me temes tanto?
(So, why are you so afraid of me?)

Is it any wonder that I would hide from you?
It's pretty clear to me what you would do
You'd poke me, you'd prod me, you'd put me on display
You won't be surprised to realise that's not a game I'll play

If you glimpse me on some moonless night
Please don't think me too impolite
If I turn on my heels and head for the trees
I beg you not to follow me

Chupacabra, Chupacabra
Entonces, ¿por qué me temes tanto?
(So, why are you so afraid of me?)

Chupacabra - Hot Pink Halo (I swear, it's in there. Three times.)

***

Cromwell is a
Hated man who
Under claims of
Purity
Attacked and
Colonised this land
Annihilating
Brutally
Red ran the fields
Across the isle
Claims were made for
Heresy
Under his siege
Prayers went unheard
Appeals denied for
Clemency
Against the stone and
Beyond the pale
Rebellion was slaughtered
About 600,000 were ethnically
Cleansed, more
Hunted and deported
Urged to
Paint him warts
And all
Cromwell did demand
And then he died
Brought to an end
Ravaged by
A bug from Ireland

Chupacabra
Micah Sommersmith

Lyrics in Spanish - English translations in italics every two lines

Me gritaste anoche con palabras de enojo
Hoy solito en el coche, pienso en nosotros
You shouted at me last night with words of anger
Today, alone in the car, I think about us

En las noticias, el cuerpo de otro cabrón
Se encuentra en un campo sin sangre
On the news, the body of another goat [also: asshole]
Has been found in a field with no blood
En su cuello, dos hoyos son marcas de algún
Tipo horrible de hambre
In its neck, two holes are the marks of some
Horrible kind of hunger

Y si ese cabrón fuera yo, no habría peleado
Me imagino que dio la bienvenida a la bestia ahí a su lado
If I were that goat, I wouldn’t have struggled
I imagine it welcomed that beast there at its side


Ai, ai ai ai mi amor, tu mordida
Me vale más, mucho más que mi propia vida.
Oh my love, your bite
Is worth much more to me than my own life.

Mejor que me muerdas y muera por tí,
Que siga sufriendo solito así.
Better that you bite me and I die for you [also: because of you]
Than that I continue suffering alone like this.
Si tú necesitas mi sangre, dime la palabra;
No soy nada más que ganado; sé mi chupacabra.
If you need my blood, give me the word;
I’m nothing but livestock; be my chupacabra.


Me hieres, cariño; no es por accidente
Me tratas de niño, me perturbas la mente
You wound me, darling, and not by accident
You treat me like a child, you mess with my mind

Pero así como un mundo de ciencia y razón
Se ha caído al chupacabrismo
But just as a world of science and reason
Has fallen to chupacabra-ism

Me caigo, sirena, al son de tu canción,
Aunque me duelo a mí mismo
I fall, siren, to the sweet sound of your song,
Even though I wound myself

Estoy vinculado a tí, como por cadenas
Mientras te quedas cerca de mí, me drenas las venas, me llenas de penas
I’m linked to you as if by chains
While you’re close to me, you drain my veins, you fill me with sorrow


Ai, ai ai ai mi amor, tu mordida
Me vale más, mucho más que mi propia vida.
Oh my love, your bite
Is worth much more to me than my own life.

Mejor que me muerdas y muera por tí,
Que siga sufriendo solito así.
Better that you bite me and I die for you [also: because of you]
Than that I continue suffering alone like this.

No soy nada más que ganado; sé mi chupacabra.

Chupacabra
by Max Bombast

There's something in the darkness
And it's staring back at you
But you can't let it out
And I can't get it out
For you

There's something right behind you
And it knows you through and through
And you could let it out
If you said it aloud
I know that you would want me to

It has teeth
Sunk into you viens
Driving you insane
But once you've seen it's face

NOW! YOU! KNOW! THE! CHUPACABRA!
Chupacabra, why you gotta bring me down?

So put on your set of armor
And you'll make a bad excuse
Why you can't make the date
You'll find something to say
But the truth

But when you see it's shadow
And there's nothing you can do
But to hide in plain sight
With your eyes open wide
Everyone can see ??? hunting you

We can see
That you are ashamed
But your not to blame
No one knows you paiiiiin....

BUT! THE! CHUPACABRA!
Chupacabra, why you gotta bring me down?

The thing about the beast
That follows you all day
Is you could make it he(e|a)l
If you would only say it's name

THE! CHUPACABRA!
Chupacabra, why you gotta bring me down?

Gold city lost in a sea of green
For centuries did go unseen;
Hidden deep within its walls
Something sore unearthly calls
A flood of recollection flows
To find The immortal sun he goes

Tezzeret, though fortified
By etherium now calcified,
Tempted by insanity
Gave up his humanity;
To solely focus on his prize
It will perhaps be his demise.

Shuffle the cards; if I play them right
With the ace up my sleeve, I’ll get lucky tonight
You may play the black lotus if you will
I’ll bring the Chupacabra for the kill

A goal now set, the path now clear
He has nothing left to fear
The final battle has begun
‘Gainst Mentor for th’immortal sun.
Two po’erful souls who walk the planes
Shall engage, til one remains

Shuffle the cards; if I play them right
With the ace up my sleeve, I’ll get lucky tonight
You may play the black lotus if you will
I’ll bring the Chupacabra for the kill

He can almost taste the immortal sun
And with the lotus, thinks he’s won;
Everlasting torment plays
But I still stand, though stunned and dazed
One final beast will rend the day
With ravenous maw, to his dismay

Shuffle the cards; if I play them right
With the ace up my sleeve, I’ll get lucky tonight
You may play the black lotus if you will
I’ll bring the Chupacabra for the kill

Fun little goofy tale. It has deeper context that might give spoilers to a TV show/Movie. Leaving under a spoiler tag in case you want to guess on your own or you like to avoid spoilers.

Credit to my brother for giving me this idea.
What it's based on
Show
It's someone who watched the Mandalorian season 1 on Disney+, but didn't really understand it, doesn't do a good job explaining it.

He thinks baby yoda is a chupacabra. I mean, he could be, right?
Individual references spoilers
Show
Plays the Mandolin - Mandolin-ian? cause he plays the Mandolin I think, right?
fun fact: Originally the main character was a minstrel as I thought that a good way to describe someone who plays music and also goes on adventures e.g. the minstrels following brave sir robin in monty python and the holy grail. It was brought to my attention that 'minstrel' also carries heavy racist connotations (the minstrel show) with it so I wrote around that name. I liked it better than straight up saying mandolin, but y'know.

Tin man fights a horse - Mandalorian fights the Mudhorn

Powers from a universal source - Could it be the force? of course!

McGruff - Kuiil

breakin’ out of jail - prison ship episode

helping the country folk work out some issues with the neighbors - When he helps the villagers kill off the band of Klatoonian raiders

burning hot with gout - lava

decepticons - storm troopers

Tiny Timmy Tinkertoys - IG-11

omited from lyrics (other friends along the way):

Lady Lorian - Cara Dune (because the main character is Mando Lorian so this is Lady Lorian)

Billy Burr - Mayfeld

Chupacabra

Verse 1
Deep in the burning desert there's a monster all men fear.
It steals their goats and wrecks their farms they wish it'd disappear.
A local group was griping about how things were so tough
The unanimous decision was that they had had enough
The farmers hired a scoundrel to go trap it at its den
He trekked across the desert while he played the mandolin
He fought his way into the cave where all the monsters hide
But you’ll never guess what happened when our hero went inside

He found a...

Chorus 1
Baby chupacabra he's as cute as he could be
he rides his little floating egg across the desert sea
He'll use his chupa magic when the tin man fights a horse
Maybe he's got powers from some universal source?

Verse 2
Our hero brought the baby back and traded it for loot
He wanted extra money to upgrade his shiny suit
But he couldn’t get that chupacabra’s eyes out of his mind
So he went back and he found the baby chupa in a bind
He ran in with this pistol but I think that they shot first
Then he grabbed the chupacabra and explored the universe
On a distant planet they ran into young crime dog McGruff
Who assured them when he spoke that what he said was quite enough


Chorus 2
Baby chupacabra you just can’t leave him behind
He might be filled with mischief, but his heart is just so kind
Some say someday he’ll eat you but I think that’s just absurd
Look in his eyes you'll be mesmerized without a single word

Verse 3
Well, our hero and the chupacabra had themselves quite a few little adventures
They even found a few friends along the way
You just didn’t know what they’d do next from breakin’ out of jail
To helping the country folk work out some issues with the neighbors
One thing’s for sure there was always just some kinda trouble...


They found themselves inside a cave with no way to get out
So they floated down a river that was burning hot with gout
But an ambush of decepticons
Was blocking their way out
Then tiny timmy tinkertoys
Blew up himself to save the boys

Chorus 3
Baby chupacabra he is simply just the best
He's lived a half a century but you would never guess
Wear him on your t-shirts and just love him through and through
He hasn't sucked a goat just yet but I bet he will in season 2

(Piano and kick drum)

Sally had a pet goat, Jack
One day he went missing and she wanted him back
Found his body layin off the side of a road
Poor Jack had become a chupacabra snack

He’s snatchin’ up all the goats left and right
Suckin out their blood and leavin’ them dry
It's been happening for far too long
And that’s what makes us sing this song

Woah, Chupacabra gotta go
Woah, Chupacabra gotta go
Woah, Chupacabra gotta go
Cause he's eatin' up all the goats

Woah, Chupacabra gotta go
Woah, Chupacabra gotta go
Woah, Chupacabra gotta go
Cause we runnin' out of goats

Farmer Rick raised livestock
The monster picked em' off till he had no flock
Sheriff’s so scared he canceled night patrol
Told Farmer Rick to call up animal control

They needed to stop these nightly feasts
Formed a posse and went out to stomp the beast
Searched in all places both high and low
Found him sleeping so they quietly approached

Shhhh...

Woah, Chupacabra gotta go
Woah, Chupacabra gotta go
Woah, Chupacabra gotta go
Cause he's eatin' up all the goats

Woah, Chupacabra gotta go
Woah, Chupacabra gotta go
Woah, Chupacabra gotta go
Cause we runnin' out of goats

He woke up to a stinging behind
Payback for the tabs he had dashed and dined
Did not speak the language but he knew what it meant
He ran like hell and they never seen him again

Woah, Chupacabra had to go
Woah, Chupacabra had to go
Woah, Chupacabra had to go
Woah, Chupacabra had to go
He was eating up all the goats

Woah, Chupacabra had to go
Woah, Chupacabra had to go
Woah, Chupacabra had to go
Woah, Chupacabra had to go
Cause we're running out of goats
