THE BANSHEE lyrics

 

There was an awful night

when the banshee came for me

I said what do you want

she said to set you free

 

I said I'm just not ready yet

she said you wanna bet

and when I Iooked up at the Moon

I was such a stupid get

 

the banshee o the banshee

young and wild and beautiful

terrifying me

red of eye and red of hair

she was such a fright

coming to me unaware

out of the blackest night

 

the door was open to the storm

the wind howled like dog

she took my hand to find the land

of Gog and of Magog

 

I said I just don't want to know

she said you have to go

when I come to take a man

a man just can't say no

 

ooooo la la la la

ooooo la la la

 

the banshee o the banshee

young and wild and beautiful

terrifying me

red of eye and red of hair

she was such a sight

coming to me on a dare

out of the blackest night

 

when I woke I was alone

and falling in my bed

agoraphobia a stone

sinking like the dead

 

and when I managed to get up

and stagger to the fire

the coffee ready in the cup

and death was on the wire

 

ooooo la la la la

ooooo la la la

 

the banshee o the banshee

young and wild and beautiful

terrifying me

red of eye and red of hair

sucking up all light

a real to god nightmare

out of the blackest night
