Sawney Bean's got the munchies
a craving for flesh and blood
48 gaping mouths to tame
a cave full of starving weans
he'll chew the fat with anyone
he'll chew anyone's fat
and make no bones about it
he'll be lurking in the dark

Oh they're gonna hang us
oh we're gonna die
but we'll be looking for you
in the sweet by and by

Thunder roars.a roch wind blows
darkness cloaks the day
there's a foul storm brewing and a
howling gale is dragging its teeth this way
wont you guide us Lord,wont you guide us home
to our castles yonder on the brae
for our beasts are weary and the Devil he roams
down in Galloway

Then came King James and all his men
seeking out their kill
through forest thick in grave pursuit
o'er river,gorge and hill
they breached Bean's cave and there they saw
the fruits of Satan's chore
charred remains,masticated brains
and entrails by the score
