*A little Halloween fun…
Oh yes, oh my,
another day to pretend,
another day to lie.
Did I shut off the stove and all that stuff?
Did I bury the bodies deep enough?
Oh my, oh gee,
must not let on,
or let them see.
No one realizes the evil deeds I do,
except maybe those doing evil deeds too.
Uh-oh, oh yeah,
starting to sweat now
and all that jazz.
I think they know or at least suspect
my car isn’t laden with grocery sacks.
Oh wow, no way,
gotta get away.
Heading for the border before I’m dead,
before they hear the voices in my head.
Oh shoot, too late,
they have me surrounded
on the interstate.
I’d like to think they’re my friends
but all those guns mean a different end.
