Track Name: The Skeleton In The Closet
Spooks were havin' their midnight fling
The merry makin' was in full swing
They shrieked themselves into a cheerful trance
When the skeleton in the closet starts his dance

A goblin giggled with fiendish glee
A shout rang out from a big banshee
Amazement was in every ghostly glance
When the skeleton in the closet started to dance

All the witches were in stitches
While his steps made rhythmic thumps
And they nearly dropped their broomsticks
When he tried to do the bumps

You never heard such unearthly laughter
Such hilarious groans
When the skeleton in the closet rattled his bones
Track Name: I Hate Myself (For Being So Mean To You)
If you don´t come back, I know I won´t last long
(Feelin´low, worried so)
Like a weepin´ willow weepin´ in the rain
(Sad am I, gonna cry)
How can I feel right done have done wrong *
My spirit is gone

That´s why I
Hate myself for being mean to you
Hate myself for being mean to you
Eenie meanie minie mo
I broke your heart and let you go
Hate myself for being mean to you

I bite my tongue
for saying the things I said
I slap my face
for saying the things I dared
Gonna send myself a telegram
And tell myself what I fool I am
I hate myself for saying the things I said

Oh baby,
please, come back, please, come back,
I´ll never make you cry
Stay away another day
I´ll kiss myself goodbye!

Gonna hide myself down in the deep deep blue
´Cause I hate myself for being mean to you

...
Oh baby, If you come back, if you come back,
I´ll never make you cry
Stay away another day
I´ll kiss myself goodbye!

Hide myself down in the deeeeep blue…
I hate myself for being mean to you
hate myself for being mean to you
Track Name: Raska-yú
Rascayú, cuando mueras, ¿qué harás tú?
Rascayú, cuando mueras, ¿qué harás tú?
Tú serás un cadáver nada más.
Rascayú, cuando mueras, ¿qué harás tú?

Oigan la historia que contóme un día
El viejo enterrador de la comarca;
Que era un viejo a quien la suerte un día
Su único bien le arrebató la Parca.
Todas las noches iba al cementerio
A visitar la tumba de su hermosa
Y la gente murmuraba con misterio
“Es un muerto escapado de la fosa”

Hizo amistad con muchos esqueletos
Que salían bailando una sardana
Y mezclando sus voces de ultratumba
Con el croado de alguna rana
Los pobrecitos iban mal vestidos
Con sábanas que “ad hoc” habían robado
Y el guardián se decía con recelo:
“Estos muertos se me han revolucionado”.

Si no es bastante tétrica la historia
Los fuegos fatuos se meten en el lío
Armando con sus luces tenebrosas
Un cacao de padre y muy señor mío.
Track Name: Ol' Man Mose
Now once there lived an old man
With a very crooked nose
He lived in a log hut
And they called him Ol' Man Mose
(Yeah!)
Early one mornin´ I knocked at his door
Didn't hear a single sound
I ain't gonna do it no more.

'Cause,
I believe Ol' Man, I believe Ol' Man
I believe Ol' Man... That Ol' Man Mose is dead.
(I´m telling you)
I believe Ol' Man, I believe Ol' man
I do believe Ol' Man... That Ol' Man Mose is dead.

Now
(We believe) Mose kicked the bucket
(We believe) Mose kicked the bucket
(We believe) Mose kicked the bucket
(We believe he's dead)

Oh, we belive
(We believe) Mose kicked the bucket
(We believe) Mose kicked the bucket
(We believe) Mose kicked the bucket
(We believe he's dead)

I went around to the side
And I peeped through the crack,
I saw an ooold man
Layin´ flat on his back
(Yeah!)
If Old Man Mose was dead asleep
I did not know
But after lookin' through that window (Ugh!)
I ain't gonna do it no more

'Cause,
I found out Ol' Man, I found out Ol' Man
yeah, I found out Ol' Man... That Ol' Man Mose is dead
(I´m telling you)
I found out Ol' Man, What it´s all about Ol' Man
I found out Ol' Man... That Ol' Man Mose is dead

Now
(We found out) Mose kicked the bucket
(We found out ) Mose kicked the bucket
(We found out ) Mose kicked the bucket
(We found out he's dead)

Oh,
(We found out) Mose kicked the bucket
(We found out ) Mose kicked the bucket
(We found out ) Mose kicked the bucket
(We found out he's dead)

Old Man Mose is dead!
Track Name: Cryin' Blues
I've been worried
all day long,
I don't know if I'm
right or wrong.
I got a feelin' that
you're leavin' me.
Ain't got a chance
with you I see.
You think you
don't need me no more,
but let me say
before you go:

I'm gonna cry
and this is why:
I know I got the cryin' blu-ues.

With all my persistence
you sure keep your distance.
You treat me like I got the flu-u.
I ain't no queen of Sheba,
I don't dress fine.
But I'm the kind of Mama
that's home any time.

I'm gonna cry
and this is why:
I know I got the cryin' blues.
