My New Haunt

 

Gives me everything I want

My New Haunt

 

Gives me everything I want

 

And I don't mind I don't mind I don't mind

 

If she turns out to be crazy in time

 

Bring me black strap molasses

Light me a burning witch

 

Bring me my bristle brushes

 

Bring me my tar and pitch

 

Bring me my feather pillow

And I'll unpick the stitch

 

We've lived too well

Too long

So long

So strong

My New Haunt

 

Brings me everything I want

 

And I don't mind I don't mind I don't mind

 

If she turns out to be faithless in time

 

My New Haunt

 

Sometimes disappears

Then comes back in the night

 

And whispers in my ears

Saying "Don't you know you little fool

You've nothing to fear

 

I'll tell you everything you want to know

 

Everything you want to hear"

 

And I don't mind I don't mind

I don't mind I don't mind

Raise up that flaming torch

 

Watch as the ships approach

An invitation on her lips

 

The homeless tempest-tossed she grips

 

Make her beautiful

 

Make her dutiful and rich

Sing me a love song

 

So long

So strong

 

My New Haunt

 

Has just been repossessed

 

And I don't mind I don't mind I don't mind

 

If I have to guess my next address

 

I'm out on the horizon

 

Just as the sun was rising

First rays bestow a kiss

So you would never guess

 

I'm sailing off a precipice

Dragons and gold down in the hold

 

Burning leaves and spices choking back

The stench of piss

My New Haunt

Requires a coat of paint

 

And I don't mind I don't mind I don't mind

 

If the walls are peeling and the ceiling is revealing

The stars out there reeling

 

My New Haunt

 

Sometimes disappears

Comes back in the night

And whispers in my ears

Saying "Don't you know you little fool

You've nothing to fear

I'll tell you everything you want to know

Everything you want to hear"

 

And I don't mind I don't mind

I don't mind I don't mind

 

At the end of the working day

He's tired of kneeling and praying

 

"As I lay down to die"

I can't remember why

 

Up on the silent screen

 

A cowboy ropes a trick

 

And in the second feature

Some lovely creature saved by a yankee dick

 

Make her beautiful

Make her dutiful and rich

Sing me a love song

 

So long

So strong

 

My New Haunt

The shiver of a chill

And I don't mind I don't mind I don't mind

 

Start making babies

 

Beat out those bayonets

 

Stop making bullets

 

Reverse the planets

 

Pick all my pockets

 

Cut off those bracelets

 

Have you no remorse

 

Peel off your corsets

 

Of course
