(Spoken) Boy, don't you go in there Come outa there, boy Don't you know that house is haunted (Sung) There's an old deserted mansion On an old forgotten road Where the better ghosts and goblins Always hang out. One night they threw a party In a manner à la mode And they cordially invited All the gang out At a dark bewitchin' hour When the fun was loud and hearty A notorious wall flower Became the life of the party Mmm! The spooks were havin' their midnight fling The merry makin' was in full swing They shrieked themselves into a cheerful trance When the skeleton in the closet started to dance Now a goblin giggled with fiendish glee A shout rang out from a big banshee Amazement was in every ghostly glance When the skeleton in the closet started to dance All the witches were in stitches While his steps made rhythmic thumps And they nearly dropped their broomsticks When he tried to do the bumps You never heard such unearthly laughter Such hilarious groans When the skeleton in the closet rattled his bones (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - February 2005)
