Not ideal, a ghost being afraid of the dark.

Lyrics

Coming from a grave on a foggy, moonless night
A new spook arises, gets a terrible fright
The world he now inhabits is black as it can be
He cannot see a thing and gives out a little scream!

He turns around 'cause he thought he heard a noise
Turns out it's the laughter from some boisterous boys
Then something to his left gives an unexpected bump
And although he's incorporeal it makes him jump

He's the ghost who's afraid of the dark
Whether up in the attic or out in the park
Until it lightens, he is so frightened
He shakes and he moans and his face turns quite white
He's the ghost who's afraid of the dark

The other ghosts know of him they can be so cruel
They'll hide behind a gravestone jump out shouting 'Boo!'
So he finds himself a sanctuary in a derelict house
No-one knows he's there but he's scared of every mouse

Chorus

A sold sign goes up and the boards are removed
A family moves in and destroys his solitude
He tries to scare them but the kids only laugh
He's tired of being spooky and decides he's had enough

Sitting on the sofa in front of the TV
No-one seems to mind him he's part of the family
A ghostly wave, the channel's changed 'cause he likes Scooby Doo
And when it comes to bedtime he goes upstairs too

He's the ghost who's afraid of the dark
He sleeps in the attic where he now feels calm
He's got a night light, keeps him safe from the night frights
He sleeps in a bed under sheets warm and white
He's the ghost who's afraid of the dark
He's the ghost who's afraid of the dark
He's the ghost who's afraid of the dark
