Paul Austin Kelly – Skeleton Key lyrics
Skeleton Key
Words & Music by P.A. Kelly

Skeleton key, Skeleton key
Lying in a tangle just waiting for me
In Granny’s junk drawer with all her jewelry
The tarnished brass of Granny’s only
Skeleton key, Skeleton key
Now every door at Granny’s house will open for me
Cause I’m in possession of the Skeleton key
I’m in possession of the Skeleton key

Skeleton key, Skeleton key
I feel like a magician oh, so wild and free!
In the pocket of my trousers lies a Skeleton key
Skeleton key, Skeleton key
Now the lady down the hall who lives with Granny and me
Will lock up all her secrets when she hears about me
Just roaming round the building with a Skeleton key
A Skeleton key, Skeleton key
My Granny’s old house is a hundred-and-three
And every lock will tumble with a Skeleton key
A Skeleton key, Skeleton key
Like the old attic door that’s been forbidden to me
I’ll soon set it to creakin’ with a Skeleton key
I don’t know what’s behind it but it’s waiting for me
Waiting for me, waiting for me
I’ve stolen Granny’s only magic Skeleton key

I don’t know what’s behind it but I’m going to see
And all it wants is twisting of a Skeleton key
All it wants is twisting of a Skeleton key
