lyrics

The old widow heard noises in her walls. The pest man came and set some traps but caught no rats at

all. Yet, now and then she rapped the wall and it knocked back. Now how was that? Maybe John, her

husband, came just like she’d always hoped.

Three knocks means hello. Message from the attic angel! Three knocks, I miss you. Message from the

attic angel!

She fixed her makeup, wore that blouse (his favorite from before), and danced around the house. She

set a sandwich on a plate. Outlandish! But, he might be hungry. When she checked, the lunch was gone.

The radio played their wedding song. Was it a sign?

Three knocks means thank you. Sandwich for the attic angel! Three knocks, I miss you. Sandwich for the

attic angel!

Nighttime fell. She woke, alarmed. Draped in cobwebs: the man who’d lived inside her walls. Three

knocks called him down. Living with the attic angel! He dragged her up to his nest where they lived

unhappily after.
