Keep Away, Keep Away from the Woods Tonight.

 

In the sweet, damp forest,

in the warm dark night,

a girl and her dog,

quite an innocent sight,

you wouldn’t know to see them,

you wouldn’t even guess,

she seems quite normal,

in a lily white dress,

but she holds dark magic,

in the depths of her heart,

the witch and her familiar,

never seen apart.

 

Keep away, keep away from the woods tonight

The dogs will howl, and the moon shine bright,

keep away, keep away, and guard your soul,

From the lily white girl who’ll never grow old.

 

The folks have seen them,

for many years,

the lively dog,

with two black ears,

by day they’re gone,

lured by the pull,

of dingy caves,

All damp and dull,

but when the sun,

Falls from the sky,

she weaves her spells,

and casts them high.

 

Keep away, keep away from the woods tonight

The dogs will howl, and the moon shine bright,

keep away, keep away, and guard your soul,

From the lily white girl who’ll never grow old.
