Lyrics only for the skirmish prompt ghost
Might turn into a nice little uke ditty someday.
Spooky old house haunted some do say,
on my way to school,
I was walking by one day.
An eerie wind blew up my skirt...
my knee socks they fell down.
I had an uncanny feeling
that something sure was wrong.
I tried to move my Mary Janes
from their frozen state
an unearthly scream was heard
from behind the creaky iron gate.
A wraithlike shadowy figure
was beckoning me inside.
it’s pallid pasty ashen skin
and clothes just like a bride
There are so many rumors
about that house some say
that a woman killed her husband
on their Wedding day…
They gathered in that big old house
for champagne and some cake
but for some ungodly reason, she brandished
a garden rake.
and wacked him over the head
a dozen times or more
and then she hit him four more times to even up
Then it was said that she herself
jumped off the widows walk
maybe it really happened but
you know how people talk…
So I ran and ran off to school
into Sister Rita's waiting arms
and vowed I’d never walk that way
but then again maybe I would.
