The Ghost’s Picnic

If you go to Cally Woods today,

you're in for a big surprise.

If you go to Cally Woods today,

you'll hardly believe yours eyes.

The Patron and Patroness his wife

are visiting the School from a bygone life.

Today's the day the ghosts are having a picnic.

If you go to Cally Woods today,

you're in for a big surprise.

If you go to Cally Woods today,

you’ll hardly believe your eyes.

There's soldiers up at the forest Motte

discussing weapons and battles fought.

Today's the day the ghosts are having a picnic.

If you go to Cally Woods today,

you’re in for a big surprise.

If you go to Cally Woods today,

you’ll hardly believe your eyes.

There's dykers talking about their walls,

how best to build so nothing falls.

Today's the day the ghosts are having a picnic.

If you go to Cally Woods today,

you're in for a big surprise.

If you go to Cally Woods today,

you'll hardly believe your eyes.

The Drover is setting out on the track

his cattle won't be coming back.

Today's the day the ghosts are having a picnic.
