( The Couple Next Door )

I begged mom not to move here

this place was very strange

Something about it scared me

and the neighbors seemed deranged

Thomas and Tilly Turner

the couple from next door

Their spooky eyes still haunt me

they chill me to the core

The first time that we met them

Thomas was very quiet

But his wife Mrs. Tilly

caused us quite a riot

I could tell she didn't like me

she acted like a bitch

It was clear and obvious

That Tilly was a witch

In the darkness of the night

from my window I could see

They were up to something

when suddenly they noticed me

I quickly closed my curtain

and ran dashing to my bed

I hid beneath my covers

as frightful thoughts ran through my head

I could hear Mrs. Tilly bitching

at poor Thomas through the night

How could he put up with her

when shes such a gruesome sight

In the day she was so beautiful

but the night is of no sort

Her eyes are of pure evil

on her nose a hairy wart

In her hands she held a doll

with a pin stuck through its chest

My eyes grew big in horror

as I grabbed my throbbing breast

I lay there fighting for my breath

when they entered into my room

Thomas, Tilly, and mom

holding Tilly's broom
