lyrics

We’ve been a long time hiding up a tree from the bogeyman
And when he came we were frozen on the spot looking through our hands
You should have seen him, he danced like a toreador
Only not in a good way, more like a bogeyman

You’ll let it go if I stay in tonight it’s been a hell of a week
I should be out there spoiling for a fight but it’s just not me
Your invitation was welcome indeed
And the food’s ok it’s just the smell of sanctimony

The villagers are out burning torches for the bogeyman
Shy vigilantes wearing hemp from Hindustan
They’ll never find him, if the him is a her
There’s no acceptable synonym for bogeyman

Still here hiding up a tree from the bogeyman
He wears a cheap leather jacket and aftershave from Milan
You should have seen him, he danced like a toreador
Only not in a good way, more like a bogeyman
