Man in Black
Antigonish - Hughes Mearns

erick-curiel:

Yesterday, upon the stair, I met a man who wasn’t there He wasn’t there again today I wish, I wish he’d go away…

When I came home last night at three The man was waiting there for me But when I looked around the hall
I couldn’t see him there at all!
Go away, go away, don’t you come back any more!
Go away, go away, and please don’t slam the door… (slam!)

Last night I saw upon the stair A little man who wasn’t there He wasn’t there again today Oh, how I wish he’d go away

In fact, I want my pain to be inflicted on others
