Where Skeletons Lay

The witch and her black cat stir up some evil In the darkness and the stillness of the night The old graveyard brings up feelings that are real They bring upon some fear as well as some fright The grave markers tell of where skeletons lay Crawling out of the ground full of ripe decay Ghosts float above the Earth looking for some game Everything in the graveyard moves to his name

beware of the triple curse, aflame, green fire burns out a name, on a tombstone sombre lit, beware of ol Tom Tit, a legendary name... half wit... insane... a bit... so lame ...... re Russell Siveys "Where Skeletons Lay" Don
