Haunt of William P. Robertson--Master of the Macabre & Gothic Horror: Readings

You Are a Witch in Pretty Skin

(ShadowFox)
November 21, 2010
William P. Robertson & A. J. Curtis

"You Are a Witch in Pretty Skin" takes the adage of "beauty's only skin deep" to a whole new level.  This song first appeared on the cassette version of Gasp! and then was also included on my audio book CD, Until Death Do Impart.  Co-written by A. J. Curtis, "Witch" was performed by the rock band ShadowFox.

 

YOU ARE A WITCH IN PRETTY SKIN

 

The hands of all your clocks are broke

And those you set turn into smoke

You tarnish every star that shines

Your arms are poison ivy vines

 

You are a witch

A witch in pretty skin

You're eyes set fire to all you see

But, baby, you ain't burnin' me

 

Your heart's a giant wrecking ball

Your conversation is a squall

Your smile grows mold on all it touches

Cats and crows are in your clutches

 

You are a witch

A witch in pretty skin

Your eyes set fire to all you see

But, baby, you ain't burnin' me

 

Your mini skirt commits a crime

Your hips create an evil rhyme

But though you're foxy, smooth, and sleek

With witchery your perfume reeks

 

You are a witch

A witch in pretty skin

Your eyes set fire to all you see

But, baby, you ain't burnin' me

Your eyes set fire to all you see

But, baby, you ain't burnin' me

 

You are a witch

A witch in pretty skin

Perverting love, love, love

Into a sin
