Stay Away, this House of Blues

the house, at the setting sun
the house, at the setting sun
dangers there
dangers there
Where evil lirks
Where evil lirks
Keep your children close.
Keep your children close.
We care!
We care!



There's a house down in the South, most go to, at the setting sun,

The things that I have learned there, Society is known to shun.

Now, family stick close together, keep your kids away from pain,

Don't allow them to get too close, to acts that are sure to stain.


There, is found that old cocaine, Marijuana is smoked everywhere,

Drinking by those just hanging out, leaves no goodness to spare.

Call girls throw their hooks to make a catch, HIV runs rampant, too,

Next thing you know, it's too late to change, bad things that you do.


The homeless, find a home down here, not kinds most care to share,

Crazy ones are so dangerous and so wild, use all caution, if you dare..

The days are not a problem most times, It's nights, trouble is to reign,

The evil cloud hangs above us all, then coming down, a storming rain.


Mamma, tell your children, sweet, to stay away, not to go to that place,

There's no good found on the street, if you live, is by our God's grace.

Study hard and you grow up straight, go to church, and a regular there,

When we all set a fine example in life, this Royal straight shows we care.

Wow, really loved this one, a good warning! I believe I've seen such houses. What is done under the cover of darkness, He will bring into the light.

God bless, Faith Reaper

Whonu, I can definitely hear a tune in those words. Country or blues, either way it sure hits home.
