Lyrics

Behind the leafy elms at the bottom of the drive Peering through those windows with squinty eyes The school boys walk by with their books and with their friends Never really knowing where the sidewalk really ends Beware of noises in the night Beware of little things that bite Beware of black widows And things that eat your heart away She said "I'm lonely - I thing you're lonely too" Why don't you just come inside and try some witches brew Dusty furniture and cobwebs everywhere A sad sad melody from the victrola by the stairs Beware of noises in the night Beware of little things that bite Beware of black widows And things that eat your heart away So come into my home - this dusty silver web Water for the thirsty and food for the unfed Forgiveness for the guilty and sleep for the tired Release from all your sorrows and all earthly desire Don't it make you sad - It almost makes me ill To think there isn't more to life Except to mate and kill Beware of noises in the night Beware of little things that bite Beware of black widows And things that eat your heart away
