I was w[G]orking all night in my [-]office, when a m[-]an I had recently kil[-]led
called me [C]up from a phone near my bu[-]ilding, so I lo[D]oked out the window at h[-]im
he had the s[E]ame obsequious ma[-]nner that was the r[Am]eason[/] I h[G]ad him k[C]ill[/]ed[D]
so to c[B]alm my nerves I s[Em]ang th[/]is s[D]ong to h[A]im over the ph[D]one:
Chorus:
Turn ar[G]ound, turn ar[-]ound - there's a th[-]ing there that can be fo[-]und
turn ar[G]ound, turn ar[G7]ound - it's a h[G6]uman skull on the gr[G]ound
human sk[C]ull on the gr[-]ound - turn ar[G]ound[-]
2.
I was out by myself in the graveyard
I was doing an interpretive dance
when I felt something heavy and pointed
strike me in the back of my neck
and then the ghost of my dance instructor
pushed me down into an open grave
and as dirt rained down she played a xylophone
and sang me this song:
(Chorus)
3.
We were waving our arms out the window
of a fast-moving passenger train
acting in an irresponsible fashion
until the engineer whose back had been turned
and who we thought would find us highly amusing
quickly swivelled his head around
and his face which was a paper-white mask of evil
sang us this song:
(Chorus)
-E.M.
