Mercyful Fate

Written by Shermann/Diamond

Includes excerpts of SATAN'S FALL, CURSE OF THE PHARAOHS, A CORPSE WITHOUT SOUL, INTO THE COVEN and EVIL

They're walking by the night
The moon has frozen blue
Long black coats a shelter for the rain
Their load must get through

Now bats are leaving their trees
They're joining the call
Seven satanic Hell preachers
Heading for the hall

Bringing the blood of a newborn child
Got to succeed, if not it's Satan's fall

Way out in Egypt in the valley of kings
Where the mummified pharaohs
Pretend dead in their sleep

        Don't touch, never ever steal
        Unless you're in for the kill

Or you've been hit, by the curse of the pharaohs
Yes you've been hit, and the curse is on you

The curse of the pharaohs can be so deadly
Just destroying your future
Makin' it all shady

        Don't touch, never ever steal
        Unless you're in for the kill

Or you'll be hit, by the curse of the pharaohs
Yes you'll be hit, and the curse is on you

Listen
I'm a corpse
I'm a corpse
I'm a corpse without soul

Satan
He's taken
He's taken
He's taken his toll
He took it out on me

I
I'm trapped
I'm trapped
I'm trapped in his spell

Tonight
I'm going
I'm going
I'm going to Hell
Inside his spell

Howl like a wolf
And a witch will open the door
Follow me and meet our high priestess

        Come, come into my coven
        And become Lucifer's child

Undress 'til you're naked
And put on this white coat
Take this white cross
And go to the center of the ring

        Come, come into my coven
        And become Lucifer's child

I was born in the cemetary
Under the sign of the moon
Rasied from my grave by the dead

And I was made a mercenary
In the legions of Hell
Now I'm king of pain, I'm insane

You know my only pleasure
Is to hear you cry

I'd love to hear you cry
I'd love to see you die

And I'll be the first
To watch your funeral
And I'll be the last to leave

I'd love to hear you cry

And when you're down
Beyond the ground
I'll dig up your body again
And make love to shame

Oh lady cry, and say goodbye
Oh lady cry, and say goodbye
You've gotta say goodbye
'Cause I will eat your mind
