Over the moor, take me to the moor
And I'll lay me down
Over the moor, take me to the moor
And I'll lay me down
Lesley-Anne, with your pretty white beads
And you'll never see your home again

Tonight will be your very last night
A woman said : "I know my son is dead

Hindley wakes, Hindley wakes, Hindley wakes, and says :

Cannot hide the stolid stench of death
Cannot hide the stolid stench of death
Hindley wakes and says :
"Oh, whatever he has done, I have done"
But this is no easy ride

We are on a sullen misty moor
But we will be, we will be, we will be, right by your side
This is no easy ride
Yes, you could say we're a team
You might sleep
BUT YOU WILL NEVER DREAM !
BUT YOU WILL NEVER DREAM !
BUT YOU WILL NEVER DREAM !"
Oh Manchester, so much to answer for

Find me !
Oh, I'll haunt you when you laugh
BUT YOU WILL NEVER DREAM !
Over the moors, I'm on the moor
Oh, the child is on the moor
