41(The Horror Song)

41 (The horror song)
(Rues)

And on that night the ghost of Lizzy’s dog
Walked up the hardwood staircase
And into Lizzy’s room to tell her tales…
And he told her tales of death and mutilation
And he turned her eyes to brine…

‘Cause Lizzy Borden took an axe
And she gave her mother forty wacks
And when she saw what she had done
She gave her father forty-one, forty-one…

And in a darkened hallway, bloodstains on the carpet
And mama’s breathin’ low…
Poor young lizzy sits there all alone with madness
Runnin’ through her head…

‘Cause Lizzy Borden took an axe
And she gave her mother forty wacks
And when she saw what she had done
She gave her father forty-one, forty-one…

And on that night the ghost of Lizzy’s dog
Ran down the hardwood staircase and out
The backdoor, leaving whence he’d come…
Leaving poor young Lizzy ill prepared
To tell the sheriff what she’d done…

‘Cause Lizzy Borden took an axe
And she gave her mother forty wacks
And when she saw what she had done
She gave her father forty-one, forty-one…
