Lock yourself behind an iron gate
To keep the intruders off your way
Sleep with a rifle in your bed
But still your screams keep you awake

'The madman's hiding in the night'
Searching for you
'The thieves are approaching your house'
Always out of sight
'The murderer's on the loose tonight'
Waiting for you
'Defend your piece of paradise'
Playtime's over

I can't tell the sun from the moon

All work and no play at all
Made Jack a dull little boy

Don't let the strangers know your name
Their smiling teeth have disappeared
Don't take the shortcut by the lake
Their eyes are following your way

'The madman's hiding in the night'
Searching for you
'The thieves are approaching your house'
Always out of sight
'The murderer's on the loose tonight'
Waiting for you
'Defend your piece of paradise'
Playtime's over

I can't tell the sun from the moon

All work and no play at all
Made Jack a dull little boy

Here come a candle to light you to bed
Here come an angel to take you awayI C
