Wraith woman, wraith woman
Lurking at the door
Wraith woman tell us
What have you come for?
Wraith woman, wraith woman
Scratching at the door
Wraith woman tell us
Who do you implore?

Wraith woman, wraith woman
Every night at ten
Wraith woman joins us
Coming back again
Wraith woman, wraith woman
When you come again
Wraith woman tell us
What will happen then?

Wraith woman, wraith woman
This was once your home
Wraith woman lonely
Saw your children grown
Wraith woman, wraith woman
See you should have known
We’re not your children
Just leave us alone

Wraith woman, wraith woman
You do not belong
Wraith woman singing
Such a lonely song
Wraith woman, wraith woman
We can’t come along
Wraith woman, wraith woman
All your children gone

Wraith woman, wraith woman
Lurking at the door
Wraith woman tell us
What have you come for?
Wraith woman, wraith woman
Scratching at the door
Wraith woman tell us
Who do you implore?
