This song is for getting rid of ghosts that might be hanging around waiting to be fed.


There's no meat, no greens, no milk, no bread, I'm singing you the song of the dead
No butter, no oil, no fat, no grease, the pans are dry, the pans are dry
There's no corn, no wheat, no barley, no rice, the larders are empty even of mice
There's no herbs, no yeast, no dry beans and no spice, this is a song, a song for the dead.

Ooooooooo Ooooooooooo

No cornflake casserole, no hot cross buns, no root beer floats no buttered rum, no hollandaise, no bougelaise, no creme fraiche, no mayonnaise-
No chicken of the woods, no sarsaparilla, no verde sauce, no carnitas-
No lovage on toast, elephants ears, no turkey pot pie, no fennel bulbs, no rosemary, no beef jerky, no watermelon rinds, no sassafras tea-
No okra, cauliflower, rhubarb pie, no snow no shelling, no sugar snap peas, no peas-

No quinoa, no aubergine, no radicchio, no arugula, no lemon chiffon, no hot peach pie, no baked beans, bacon and collard greens-
No stuffed tiger lilies, no steamed bok choy, no roasted baby turnips no tatsoi-
No kelp, no nori, no sashimi, no stewed prune shakes, no Purple Cherokee, No risotto asparagus brie or blue cheese, no sweet potato fries, no sour cream, no duck confit, no tater gems, no cardamom pudding, not even ground cherries, no cherries-

I'm singing to you, you hungry ghost and now that you know there's nothing to eat
You can quit your hanging and banging around you can quit your clanking those heavy links
And don't be afraid to wade deep 'til you're inside the moon 'til your inside the moon.
And you're dreaming and you're dreaming and you're dreaming the tides and you're dreaming the tides.
