The Bad Luck Girl

lyrics

when they surveyed the scene
they said no cause could ever be confirmed
though survivors, if any, were unlikely
no trace of the girl was ever found
she stole out of the house
crept about
then doubled back again
once the trail had grown cold
but the rafters still smouldered within
and she said, “oh, what a noise we will make
when we’re found out!
oh, what a noise we will make
when we’re found out!”
the floorboards are creaking
and window panes rattling
is it the wind come for the bad luck girl?
they say she still haunts these halls
shadow across the walls
set them alight in their beds, babes and all
when they surveyed the scene
they said no cause could ever be confirmed
oh, the matches and the kerosene
quickly consumed the girl
and when the flames, they roared
she said, “oh, what a noise we will make
when we’re found out!
oh, what a noise we will make
when we’re found out!”
the floorboards are creaking
and window panes rattling
is it the wind come for the bad luck girl?
they say she still haunts these halls
shadow across the walls
set them alight in their beds, babes and all
she said, “oh, what a noise we will make
when we’re found out!”
(the floorboards are creaking)
(and window panes rattling)
(is it the wind come for the bad luck girl?)
she said, “oh, what a noise we will make
when we’re found out!”
(the floorboards are creaking)
(and window panes rattling)
(is it the wind come for the bad luck girl?)
she said, “oh, what a noise we will make
when we’re found out!”
(the floorboards are creaking)
(and window panes rattling)
(is it the wind come for the bad luck girl?)
she said, “oh, what a noise we will make
when we’re found out!”
(the floorboards are creaking)
(and window panes rattling)
(is it the wind come for the bad luck girl?)
oh, what a noise we will make
when we’re found out
oh, what a noise we will make
when we’re found out
