Track Name: Witch in the Alley
She had a trash can for a cauldron
And a mop handle for a wand
She was born in the scum of
A dirty old pond
In the 42nd district on the south side of town
She wears a dishrag on her mouth to keep the vomit down
Let me tell you about the whole story
I swear that it’s the truth and not an allegory
This witch that I knew back in the big city
Living in the trash. What a pity.


My soul feels invaded. Turned inside out.
My memory has faded.
Watch out.

She’s mixing up banana peels in the pale blue moonlight
There’s a witch in the alley
Witch. Witch in the alley
Don’t take any shortcuts home tonight
There’s a witch in the alley
Witch. Witch in the alley

Let me tell you about the whole tale
Instead of crows to guard her work she had a fleet of snails
She’s out there turning little boys into rotten moldy food
Stay away from the alley before she gets you too

They call this part the dance of the trash witch
You know the alley? In the southwest corner of the northern quadrant in cheap city?
Stay away from that alley. That’s where she’s made her lair.
She made a wig of old spaghetti to replace her witchy hair.
She’s cooking up old chicken bones from the diner next door.

My soul feels invaded. Turned inside out.
My memory has faded.
Watch out.

Two egg shell cartons and the blood from a dog fight
There’s a witch in the alley
Witch. Witch in the alley
Don’t take any shortcuts home tonight
There’s a witch in the alley
Witch. Witch in the alley
