Lyrics: Mr Merry

When the toil of day is o'er
And the sheep are in the fold,
And when across the broomy heath
The whistling winds blow cold;
When the village dogs in fear
At the moon begin to howl
And from some tott'ring wall is heard
The melancholy owl;
Then ev'ry danger is abroad
And grisly spectres glide,
While through the air, with dire intent,
The witch and wizard ride.
