As our world became further explored and better understood, so grew the Gothic tales of the late nineteenth century. These tales pandered to the imagination of the reader, who were open to the idea that there might still be something "beyond that which is immediately in front of us". But, as the edges of the map were filled in (by explorers like Captain Cook), no one found any demons or dragons. A replacement character was necessary to stir the imagination, in the guise of Bram Stoker’s ‘Dracula’. Stoker was a frequent visitor to Whitby, which became the setting for many pivotal scenes in his ‘Dracula’ novel. Yorkshire based culture was taking the world by storm….
Dracula (when the sun goes down in Whitby Town)
(Music and Words: Tim Hunter)
When the sun goes down, in Whitby Town
Dracula’s around, When the sun goes down.
When the sun goes down, in Whitby Town Dracula’s around.
He sleeps all day, but when it’s dark
he doesn’t lay, Dracula is looking for prey
Shipwrecked on the Demeter he came ashore
In the guise of a black dog, wreaking havoc on the town, he has a thirst for blood
When the sun goes down
Dracula, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
When the sun goes down in Whitby Town
Dracula’s around, when the sun goes down
He gives no reflection in the mirror
Blood is his life, he casts no shadow
Transforms into bat and waits for night
There’s a look of fear and horror on your face
You might just die of fright
Don’t stray where the bats fly in the night sky
You’re only safe when it’s light
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
