(8 June 1920 – 4 December 1995 / Taringa, Queensland)

Haunted House

Three knocks on the door
As they feelt the fear
They all crawled on the floor
No one, no one dares

Every house is locked up tight
No one can fly away
You will se the shadows fight
For you to just stay

Can you hear the steps outside
Closer, closer, come closer
Where will you run and hide
Will you face it sober?

Two knocks on the door again
Scream and hide for it now
You will be here till the end
They will get inside somehow

Locked up tight and you try
Escape from the house of mine
Will you end up scarred and cry
This answears take its time

One more knock, feel the fear
Feel the fear of a painful death
Look it in the eyes if you dare
Open up and take your last breath...

Locked up tight
Nowhere to go
Stayed up all night
A fear that grows
Locked up tight
Nowhere to go
Stayed up all night
A fear that grows so....
