Haunted House
by John Anderson



I just moved in the new house today
Moving was hard but I got squared away
Bell started ringin' and chains clanged loud
I knew I'd move in a haunted house.

Still it made up my mind to stay
And nothin' was a gonna drive me away
When I seen somethin' that gave me the creeps
And one big eye and two big feet.

I stood right still and I did it freeze
He just strolled right up to me
Made a noise that sounds like a drum
Said, "Don't be here when the morning comes."

I said, "Yes, I'll be here when the morning comes
I'll be right here and I ain't gonna run
I bought this house so you know I'm boss
Ain't no haint gonna run me off."

In the kitchen my stove was a-blazing hot
The coffee was boilin' in the pot
Grease had melted in the pan
I had a hunk o' meat in my hand.

From out of space there sat a man
On the hot stove with the pots and pans
"Say that hot," I began to shout
He drank a hot coffee right from the spout.

He ate the raw meat right from my hand
And drank the hot grease from the frying pan
He looked at me and said "You better run
And don't be here when the morning comes."

I said, "Yes, I'll be here when the morning comes
I'll be right here and I ain't gonna run
I bought this house so you know I'm boss
Ain't no haint gonna run me off."...
