Hearken! and observe how healthily --how calmly I can tell you the whole story.

lyrics

Couldn't look him in the pale blue eye
Couldn't look him in the evil eye
Moved to the beat, beat of a heart
Beat in a chest, beneath the boards

I creeped in at the door so faintly seven nights
So near the bedside in the soft lantern light
Moved to the beat, beat of a heart
Beat in a chest, beneath the boards

The shriek was my own in a dream
The shriek was my own in a dream now

I smiled gaily to find the deed so far done
Worked in silence after the hour had come
Moved to the beat, beat of a heart
Beat in a chest, beneath the boards

The shriek was my own in a dream
The shriek was my own in a dream now
And I smiled, because what had I to fear?
The shriek was my own in a dream
