Spider Web

Small Cat  Pray be brave musketeer
Small Cat  Sleepcatcher Way
Small Cat  Later life…
Small Cat  In afterglow 2
Small Cat  Times Squared
Small Cat  Springtime rush
Small Cat  A welcome breeze
Small Cat  Daniel’s Fire
Small Cat  Back Peddling
Small Cat  Our NHS
Small Cat  Silver Jubilee 1977
Small Cat  You’re still the one
Small Cat  Heavens above
Small Cat  Intimate eyes
Small Cat  Don't ask me to write about butterflies
Small Cat  Time and Temper
Small Cat  A girl in a rush
Small Cat  Why can't you believe?
Small Cat  Oh, what the dark doth bring to light
Small Cat  Born to be loved
Small Cat  Virtual love
Small Cat  I can't rightly say I love you
Small Cat  Get a new dress
Small Cat  Nurse Divine
Small Cat  Love lingers long into the night
Small Cat  Every woman in the room
Small Cat  Catch the wind
Small Cat  The rhythm of love
Small Cat  Astonishing people
Small Cat  I heard on the wind
Small Cat  Lockdown Eucharist
Small Cat  Lean me up against a wall

It's not a haunted house


It’s not a haunted house, it’s

Just disturbed, it’s the windit

Often does that, don’t be scared.

Did you see the curtains move?

Did a presence cross the room?

If it did, I didn’t see it, that’s

The truth.


It’s not a haunted house, it’s

Just distressedfor many years

It's suffered much neglect.

The gas pipes sometimes moan,

And I can’t deny it’s cold, but

I do assure you you’ll be safe in bed.


Don’t listen to the tapping, the

Scraping or the screams, and do

Ignore the voices on the stairs.

It’s all imagination, nothing more

And nothing less, and I promise

Hand on heart there’s nothing



It’s not a haunted house, it’s

Just upset, it’s seen a dozen

Masters fall on death. The faces

On the walls, the footsteps in

The hall, sad reflections of a past

It can’t forget.


Now blow the candle out and

Go to sleep, put from your mind

All thoughts of what might be. At

The bottom of the bed, slowly

Crawling up your leg, best ignore

It if you’ll take a tip from me.

It’s not a haunted house, it’s

Just possessed, with a need to keep

Whoever rests their head. It isn’t

Hallowe’en, but I’m afraid you

Cannot leave, it’s locked the doors,

Barred the windows, chained your
