HAUNTED HOUSE

Writers: Holly Knight/John Paragon

 

It’s dark and you’re alone the house begins to moan

the windows start to slam and the doors commence to jam

All of sudden the lights go out there’s terror all about

you think you’ve gone insane when somebody calls your name

Then you hear the sound of footsteps echoing the hall

but when you open up the door there’s no one there at all

Was that just the wind or someone creeping up the stairs

You get so nervous that you nearly mess your underwear

you never felt so scared

 

By the sound of something strange

The rattle of bones and chains

and you get misgivings living in a haunted house

There’s scratching at the door

Feel a heartbeat through the floor

it’s a ghostly rhythmn   living in a haunted house

 

The plates and silverware go flying through the air

feel a hand around your neck and you become a nervous wreck

You jump into your bed pull the covers over your head

You think it’s just a dream until you hear somebody scream

Your heart jumps up into your throat you’re paralyzed with fear

Then you hear a demon voice say ‘get out of here’

You start to run but there is nowhere left for you to hide

you realize you’re standing in the spot where someone died

You’re terrified !

 

By the sound of something strange

The rattle of bones and chains

and you get misgivings living in a haunted house

There’s scratching at the door

Feel a heartbeat through the floor

yeah the ghost got rhythmn  living in a haunted house

and the ghost goes  oooooooooooooo

(Mmmm that sounds so good it’s scary)

Suddenly the phone rings …

Elvira Mistress of the Dark …hello hello…who is this

oh my god the line’s been cut

The phone, it’s it’s …DEAD !

 

By the sound of something strange

The rattle of bones and chains

and you get misgivings living in a haunted house

There’s a scratching at the door

Feel a heartbeat through the floor

and you’re just not wanted it’s a haunted house

Cassandra Peterson( Elvira), has been a dear friend of mine for many years. A natural red head, she is driven, funny and very much like the character she developed, only a lot smarter. I’ve written and produced several songs for her and it’s always been a blast.

‘Elvira’ shot a really cool 3D video for this which was featured in the IMAX Theaters as the first 3D IMAX presentation – HK
