8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
You see that vacant house, As quiet as a mouse,
It's chock full of myst'ry, Besides, it has a hist'ry.
The man who occupied, That building strangely died,
No one wants to buy it, because....That house is
I often have been told, That there's a bag of gold,
In the house that's haunted, I'm poor, but I don't want it.
The doors are open wide, But no one steps inside,
No one needs the money, because....That house is
Haunted, haunted, Lanky, hanky, panky skeletons,
Go sneakin' around, You see that boney, croney,
I mean that boney skeleton, Hiding behind that statue,
Look out, he's looking at you! Listen! Listen!
Tell me can't you hear him whistling, That Mysterious
Rag so noted, He wrote it, In that rickety haunted house.
