"Dragula" is a song co-written and recorded by American rock musician Rob Zombie. It was released in August 1998 as the lead single from his solo debut Hellbilly Deluxe. Since its release it has become Zombie's most recognizable song as a solo artist. The song is based on the drag racer "DRAG-U-LA" from the sitcom The Munsters.


The audio clip "superstition, fear and jealousy" at the beginning of the song is from the film Horror Hotel, and is spoken by Christopher Lee.


The song also appears on Rob Zombie's Past, Present & Future, the greatest hits album The Best of Rob Zombie. The original single included a big beat remix of the song by Charlie Clouser, entitled the "Hot Rod Herman" remix (in reference to the Munsters episode), which is contained on American Made Music to Strip By (under the name Si Non Oscillas, Noli Tintinnare Mix). Additionally, it appeared on the soundtracks for video games, films and TV shows.


The music video shows Rob Zombie driving a car that resembles the Munster Koach (not the actual Dragula racing car) with various shots of the band members and different scenes from movies, e.g. Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde at the beginning of the video and the killer robot from the old movie chapter serial The Phantom Creeps. It achieved heavy rotation on MTV following the huge success of the album. The video also appears in the film Idle Hands.


Lyrics

Superstition, fear and jealousy


Dead I am the one, exterminating son
Slipping through the trees, strangling the breeze
Dead I am the sky, watching angels cry
While they slowly turn, conquering the worm


Dig through the ditches
And burn through the witches
I slam in the back of my
Dragula!


Dig through the ditches
And burn through the witches
I slam in the back of my
Dragula!


Dead I am the pool, spreading from the fool
Weak and what you need, nowhere as you bleed
Dead I am the rat, feast upon the cat
Tender is the fur, dying as you purr


Dig through the ditches
And burn through the witches
I slam in the back of my
Dragula!


Dig through the ditches
And burn through the witches
I slam in the back of my
Dragula!


Do it baby, do it baby
Do it baby, do it baby
Burn like an animal


Dead I am the life, dig into the skin
Knuckle crack the bone, twenty one to win
Dead I am the dog, hound of hell you cry
Devil on your back, I can never die


Dig through the ditches
And burn through the witches
I slam in the back of my
Dragula!


Dig through the ditches
And burn through the witches
I slam in the back of my
Dragula!


Do it baby, do it baby
Do it baby, do it baby
Burn like an animal


Dig through the ditches
And burn through the witches
I slam in the back of my
Dragula!


Dig through the ditches
And burn through the witches
I slam in the back of my
Dragula!


Dig through the ditches
And burn through the witches
I slam in the back of my
Dragula!
