Bad news breaking in 18a
Missy’s kitty turn inside out she say
Spider queen demon and that whole crew
Across the lobby the wicker wing chair flew
All the nice people those goodly souls
Quaking in their respective hidey-holes
Everyone’s wasted in this gruesome dream
Not a one of them left to hear you scream

Two against nature don’t you know
Who’s gonna grok the shape of things to go
Two against nature make them groan
Who’s gonna break the shape of things unknown

Madame erzulie she come last night
Bang you silly but leave a nasty bite
There on your nightstand much worse than that
Panatela and old black derby hat

Call your doctor - call your shrink
Western science she strictly rinkydink
They all masissi but we hang tough
Apsatively gonna help you beat that stuff

Two against nature tan and lean
Puttin’ big heat on skanky things unseen
Two against nature slinging dread
These boys wanna bang the skulls of things undead

T-bone angie she champion liar
Sew the mouth shut with rusty chicken wire
Brother lou garue and the jerry garry
Sprinkling chicken water gonna hush all three
Beautiful housewife in deep distress
’specially you deserve our very best
Two against nature they got that stuff
Good things happening when you see about us

Two against nature love this gig
Pull up the weeds before they’re too damn big
Two against nature stand alone
Who’s gonna chase the shape of things unknown
Two against nature don’t you know
Who’s gonna drop the boom on things to go
Two against nature make them groan
Gonna go bang-zoom to the moon on things unknown

Scrape the wallboards the whole damn batch
Catch the maggoty eggs before they hatch
Pepper and ratbone make damn sure
Shake the rubbish out on the patio floor
Soak the timber with special spray
Nuke the itty bitty ones right where they lay
Whip the bastards while they still green
Take the firemop - sweep it kissing clean
