City Hobgoblins
Spiders know these things

Gremlins know these things

Tap, tap, tap, tap

You think its the pipes

But who turns on the lights?

Our city hobgoblins

Ubu le roi is a home hobgoblin

And at nights all ready

Our city hobgoblins

Infest my home at night

They are not alright

Ten times my age

One-tenth my height

Our city hobgoblins

Buzz of the all-night mill

Ah but evil

Emigres from old green glades

Pretentious eh?

Our city hobgoblins

Theyll get yer

So queen victoria

Is a large black slug in piccadilly, manchester

Our city hobgoblins

And they say

We cannot walk the floor at night in peace

At night in peace
