An excerpt from "Bloody Hammer," originally released on Evil One from 1981:

Second, "I am this special one
My eyes, green and blue
dart safely unbegotten
to the left to say, 'no'
While the others with their hair turned white,
each roll their eyes back to the top of their head
and hammer the attic floor with a bloody hammer
I never have their bloody hammer
I never have their bloody
I never have their bloody
I never have their bloody hammer."

It's not a sledgehammer
It's not a chisel
It's not a train
but a thought of unlimited horror for (tap your feet)

Doctor O'Chane, Doctor O'Chane
the baby ghost from the 1900s says, "beat it with your chain"
The baby ghost says, "don't drag your spoon, don't drag your chain away,
Doctor O’Chane"
