Neighbour of the Beast

by Daniel Kelly – 2020

Am                              Dm
Well Kevin he’s my neighbour, he’s a jolly cheerful soul,
   Am                      G
Always helping the community, he plays a model role,
           Am                              Dm
But at his house over coffee, I noticed an odour,
           Am                         G               Am
The distinctive smell of sulphur, coming from his basement door.

C                             G             Am
I think I might just be the neighbour of the beast
           Am                   G             Am
I think I might just be the neighbour of the beast
     Dm         Am                    G
If it comes to Armageddon, at least I’ll be at/part of the feast,
             Am              G                 Am
I think I might just be the neighbour of the beast

Last month, come to think of it, the guy from Amazon,
Left a box for me by accident, they often get it wrong,
I had thought the whips and chains, were just for his bedroom,
Now I suspect that he might be the lord of doom.

I’d assumed he was from Jersey, he always wears a devils hat,
But now I wonder if a pair of horns, are hidden under that,
And that lengthy bulge that’s in his pants, is not cause he’s endowed,
But maybe it’s the tail, that he has to wrap around.

I didn’t mind the midnight chanting, or the visitors in dark robes,
I thought he was into gothic raves, with coloured lights and strobes,
But the influx of young maidens, seemed strange for a man his age,
Now that look at things more closely, I see a darker page.
