She said, "Sit down and don't touch anything"
I did what I was told
And later that night we laid down on a bed
That was almost 200 years old

Cause she lived in a house that was filled with antiques
Made by Egyptians , Italians and Greeks
She said she would call in a couple of weeks
But she never did

She said, "Sit down and don't touch anything"
I was as quiet as can be
And all the dead ancestors up on the wall
Looked down their noses at me


She said, "Don't get too comfortable,
I'm used to sleeping alone"
When she put on a robe one worn by a queen
I knew it was time to go home

When she said, "We must do this again sometime"
I know she was just being nice
Something so scary and wonderful
Hardly ever happen twice
