I've got your blood to keep me warm


I was watching the snow fall last night and I remembered one of my favorite horror movies, Ravenous, about a psychopath vampire terrorizing a remote army outpost at the wane of the civil war. The movie didn't receive a strong response from critics, but who the hell cares what the critics think? At any rate, my mind wanders the way it does and it twisted the movie Ravenous with Dean Martin's classic, "I've got my love to keep me warm." I've changed a few words, and I think it's rather more entertaining this way.

"I've Got Your Blood To Keep Me Warm"

The snow is snowing, and the wind it is blowing,
But I can weather the storm!
What do I care how much it may storm?
I've got your blood to keep me warm!

I cannot remember the worst December,
Just watch the icicles form.
What do I care if icicles form?
I've got your blood to keep me warm!

Off with my overcoat, out with my knife:
Who needs an overcoat? I'm burning with life!
My heart's on fire, and the flame grows higher,
So I will weather the storm.
What do I care how much it may storm?
I've got your blood to keep me warm!

I thought you ought to know my heart's on fire.
The flame it just leaps higher,
So I will weather the storm.
Why do I care how much it storms?
I've got your blood to keep me warm!
