Bite Me, Maybe?

My cousin Jenna Tousignant is freakin' hysterical! She decided, as she put it, that  "Cissa, Ander, and Luke were missing out on the feel- good, fun hit of the summer, and I didn't want them to feel left out.  Besides, with all that they have been going through, I thought they could use a little light hearted fun." So she re-wrote the words to "Call Me, Maybe" to fit the Darkride gang. As you can imagine, I was on the floor laughing. Thank you, Jenna! Here are the awesome lyrics (and the original video, in case you are one of the two people who hasn't seen it. Just promise you'll picture Cicely washing the car :) And, for the record, I LOVE LOVE LOVE it when people write things, draw things, whatever for my characters. It totally makes my day. And my birthday is tomorrow. I'm just sayin.' :) 


Bite Me, Maybe

I threw a wish in the well
Don’t ask me I’ll never tell
I’m just a witch with a spell
And now you’re in my way.

You’d trade my soul for a curse
You want my corpse in a hearse
My love just makes you feel worse
But now you’re in my way.

Full moon, hair is growin
Pulse beats, fangs are showin
Hot night, eyes are glowin
Where you think you’re goin baby?

Hey, I just met you
And this is crazy
But here’s my jugular
So bite me maybe

And all the undead
Try to chase me
But here’s my jugular
So bite me maybe

You took your time with the call
I took no time with the fall
I thought you might have a thrall
But still you’re in my way.

I’d beg, borrow, and steal
To make your potion; I feel
It’s all a little surreal
But it’s in my way.

Full moon, hair is growin
Pulse beats, fangs are showin,
Hot night, eyes are glowin
Where you think you’re goin, baby?

Hey I just met you
And this is crazy
But here’s my jugular
So bite me maybe

And all the undead
Try to chase me
But here’s my jugular
So bite me maybe

Before you drained me of my life
Things were so drab
Things were so drab
Quiet, normal and drab

Before you drained me of my life
Things were so drab
And you should know that
Things were normal and drab.

Hey I just met you
And this is crazy
But here’s my jugular
So bite me maybe?

  1. That is fantastic! All this time I thought Jenna was just a pretty face! (Only mean that rhetorically, I knew there were super depths going on, too), I love the "And all the undead/ try to chase me," that is so right out of the book, but still perfect for the song! I am anxiously awaiting the video of Jenna's performance, now!

  2. Jenna is so clever and funny and supportive! There is seriously nothing more fun than having other people "play along" with the characters in your book. You can image how this made my day, and I love that it made you smile, too, Fred!
