Hang on, hang on, hang on...
I saw a flash in the night,
Knocked me out alright.

Hang on, hang on, hang on...
I saw a flash in the night,
Shot me down alright...

I had a dream last night,
I had a dream last night,
I had a dream last night,
That there were ravens above my bed,
And they took my newlywed.

Cause we're all sleeping dead,
Hangin' onto your sleepy bed,
Oh I'd rather be dreamin' instead,
Cause we're all sleeping dead,
Hangin' onto your sleepy bed,
Oh, I'd rather be dreamin' instead.

Hang on, hang on, hang on...
I saw a flash in the night,
Shot me down alright,
Hang on, hang on, hang on...
I saw a flash in the night,
Knocked me out alright...

I had a dream last night,
I had a dream last night,
I had a dream last night,
That there were ravens above my bed,
And they took my newlywed.

Mother won't you please bury me alive,
Down in the coffin, with my wife?
Mother won't you please bury me alive,
Down in the coffin with my wife?
Mother won't you please bury me a live,
Down in the coffin with my wife,
Cause there were ravens above my bed,
And they took my newlywed.

Cause we're all sleeping dead,
Hangin' onto your sleepy bed,
Oh I'd rather be dreamin' instead,
Cause we're all sleeping dead,
Hangin' onto your sleepy bed,
Oh, I'd rather be dreamin' instead,
Oh I'd rather, be dreamin' instead.
Oh I'd rather, be dreamin' instead.
