Lynn Anderson – Haunted House lyrics

I just moved in the new house today
Moving was hard but I got squared away
Bells started ringin' and chains clankin loud
I knew I moved in a haunted house
Still I made up my mind to stay
And nothin' was a gonna drive me away
And then I seen somethin' that give me the creeps
Had one big eye and two big feet
I stood right still and I did a freeze,
And it just strolled right up to me
He said to me now you better run
(And don't be here when the morning comes)
I said yes I'll be here when the morning comes
I'll be right here and I ain't gonna run
Well I bought this house now you know I'm boss
Ain't no haunt gonna run me off

In the kitchen stove was blazing hot
The coffee was boilin' in the pot
Grease had melted in the pan
I had a hunk of' meat in my hand
From outer space there sat a man
Sittin 'on the stove with the pots and pans
Says that hot I began to shout
He drank a hot coffee right from the spout
He ate the raw meat right from my hand
Then drank a hot grease from fryin' pan
He looked to me said you better run...
Don't be here when the morn ' comes,
I said yes I'll be here when the morning comes...
Be right here ain't gonna run
I bought this house and you know I'm boss
Ain't no haunt gonna run me off...
