lyrics

Rawhead and Bloody Bones

Floating in the bay or airborne on the breeze
Choking helplessly, expensive with disease
Up there in a tree or way down underneath
Hiding in a jar or kneeling on the floor
Who can it be? Oh who can it be he he?
Oh could it be old Rawhead and Bloody Bones?

Rawhead and Bloody Bones?
No, no, not Rawhead and Bloody Bones!
Old Rawhead and Bloody Bones
Behind the next door!

Is that he in the air? Is that him in the tide?
Sinking in the sand while reaching for my hand?
Will he always be? Will I always see?
Oh please leave me be old Rawhead and Bloody Bones!

Rawhead and Bloody Bones?
No, no, not Rawhead and Bloody Bones!
Old Rawhead and Bloody Bones
Waiting behind that door!

Who was at my birth? Who stays by my side?
Underneath my skin, feeding on my life?
Don’t tell me who it is, don’t ever let me know
I never ever want to see old Rawhead and Bloody Bones!

Rawhead and Bloody Bones?
No, no, not Rawhead and Bloody Bones!
Old Rawhead and Bloody Bones
Peeking out that door!

If I’m patient and dutiful, long suffering and sane
If I’m honest and cheerful can I avoid the pain?
Will I still have to see, will I still have to meet?
Is there no escape from old Rawhead and Bloody Bones?

Rawhead and Bloody Bones?
No, no, not Rawhead and Bloody Bones!
Old Rawhead and Bloody Bones
Opening that door!

If I’m fighting for glory and the seizing the day
Leading the charge and blazing away
What will I find, will I still turn to stone?
Is there no way around old Rawhead and Bloody Bones?

Rawhead and Bloody Bones?
No, no, not Rawhead and Bloody Bones!
Old Rawhead and Bloody Bones
Jumping through that door!

If I’m multilinguistic and very well read
So philanthropic and awesome in bed
Will that release me? Can I find a way?
Get dispensation past old Rawhead and Bloody Bones?

Rawhead and Bloody Bones?
No, no, not Rawhead and Bloody Bones!
Old Rawhead and Bloody Bones
To drag me through that door!

If I’m clean and generous, quiet and meek
Very nice and helpful, so sympathétique
Can I avoid him? May I be excused?
Give me a waiver past old Rawhead and Bloody Bones?

Rawhead and Bloody Bones?
No, no, not Rawhead and Bloody Bones!
Old Rawhead and Bloody Bones
Go away from my door!
