"Ghost Town" as written by and Yusuf / Islam....
Come on lets go down
Everybody's waiting for us
Down at the ghost town
Bill Bailey said he'd be around
If Mrs. G. Robinson would just put
That bad Havana down

Lovely Queen Anne Boleyn
Learning new tricks from the Great Houdini.
Now that's the way she's gonna make it
Come on
Come on lets go down
Everybody's waiting for us
Down at the boom town
O. Redding and Washington
Chico and Harpo and Karl are
In the Kitchen with mum

Buster Keaton and King Tut
Are waiting for Disney to wake up
Now that's the way
No that ain't the way he's gonna make it

    General CommentI think this song is a cheerful look at the afterlife (although I don't get a lot of the references, because they are before my time), talking about all the good times you'll have with all these famous people who have passed on already. Hence the "Ghost Town", town of ghosts.

    General CommentAlso, the last stanza is a reference to the popular myth that Walt Disney, founder of Disney, was cryogenically frozen, so he's not truly dead, just in suspended animation. This isn't true of course, but here Keaton and Tut are waiting for him to wake up from his freezing, and he's not gonna make it to the ghost town that way.
