Little Ghost

by The White Stripes


Little ghost, little ghost

One I'm scared of the most

Can you scare me up a little bit of love?

I'm the only one that sees you,

And I can't do much to please you

And it's not yet time to meet the lord above

The first moment that I met her

I did not expect a specter

When I shook her hand I really shook a glove

She looked into me so sweetly

And we left the room discreetly

No one else could know the secret of our love


Every morning I awoke

And I see my little ghost

Wondering if it's really her that's lying there

I lean to touch her and I whisper

But not brave enough to kiss her

When I held her I was really holding air


Though I try my best to keep it

There really was no secret

Must have looked like I was dancing with the wall

[slow way down]

No one else could see this apparition

But because of my condition

I fell in love with a little ghost and that was all


And it's not yet time to meet the lord above
