Life At Last

Patrick Cannell 2012

If you go down to the cottage with the shutter blinds
You'll find a wise old woman who has read the signs.
The townsfolk think she feeds on blood
But I'm convinced she's misunderstood.

Down in the wood there's a cottage with a bright green door.
I know it's true 'cause I've been there many times before.
Don't you listen to soandso,
She taught me everything I know.

So go on down to the cottage with the shutter,
At sunset while the bats are all aflutter,
Go on down to the cottage with the shutter blinds.

She holds the key to life at last.

Down in the wood there's a woman with a recipe
Guaranteed to cure any malady.
Don't you listen to Doctor Yang,
He's taking money from the pharma gang.

So go on down to the cottage with the shutter,
Be fore-warned, they'll be calling you a nutter,
Go on down to the cottage with the shutter blinds.

She holds the key to life at last.
