city hobgoblins lyrics – fall

spiders […]
talk talk
you think it’s the pipes
but who turns out the lights?
our city hobgoblins
[aboleroy] is a home hobgoblin
and at nights all ready
our city hobgoblins
[here] past my home at night
they are not alright
ten times my age
one-tenth my height
our city hobgoblins
goes up the old night mill
ah but evil
[abbey grange for old pre-glaze]
pretentious [pretends to] say
our city hobgoblins
they’ll get yer
said queen victoria
it’s a large black slug in piccadilly, manchester
our city hobgoblins
and they say
we cannot walk the floor at night in peace
at night in peace
