Vampires, Mummies And The Holy Ghost
Written by: Jimmy Buffett, Roger Guth, Peter Mayer, Jim Mayer
Performed by: Jimmy Buffett

Originally from the Album: Fruitcakes (1994)

Lyrics:
Looked in my laptop what did I see
A flashing message said today therapy
Rather walk through fire
Than converse with my shrink
But I’m getting better
That’s what some people think

Talk about denial
And dysfunctional things
Head’s like a bell somedays
It dongs and it dings
My brain playing tricks on me
It likes to shift gears
Spend lots of money
But I’m tackling my fears

Chorus
Vampires, Mummies and the Holy Ghost
These are the things that terrify me the most
No aliens, psychopaths or MTV hosts
Scares me like vampires, mummies and the Holy Ghost
Had a dream last night
Took a time traveling ride
Back to my childhood
Where those monsters reside
They snack on innocence
And dine on self-esteem
But I like to be in touch with what makes me scream

Chorus
I was never ever frightened
By the murderer on our block
He nurtured orchids and raised hamsters
The neighborhood is still in shock
La, la, la, la, la…

So many dragons lurking out in the fog
So many crazy people mumblin’ monologues
It’s not the tales of Stephen King that I’ve read
I need protection from the things in my head
Chorus
