Little Ghost
The White Stripes Lyrics


Little ghost, little ghost
One I´m scared of the most
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?
I´m the only one that sees you,
And I can´t do much to please you
And it´s not yet time to meet the lord above

The first woman that I met her
I did not expect a specter
When I shook her hand I really shook a glove
She looked into me so sweetly
And we left the room discreetly
No one else could know the secret of our love

Little ghost, little ghost
One I´m scared of the most
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?
I´m the only one that sees you,
And I can´t do much to please you
And it´s not yet time to meet the lord above

Every morning I awoke
And I see my little ghost
Wond´rin´ if it´s really her that´s lying there
I lean to touch her and I whisper
But not brave enough to kiss her
When I held her I was really holding air

Little ghost, little ghost
One I´m scared of the most
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?
I´m the only one that sees you,
And I can´t do much to please you
And it´s not yet time to meet the lord above

Though I try my best to keep it
There really was no secret
Must have looked like I was dancing with the wall
No one else could see this apparition
But because of my condition
I fell in love with a little ghost and that was all

Little ghost, little ghost
One I´m scared of the most
Can you scare me up a little bit of love?
I´m the only one that sees you,
And I can´t do much to please you
And it´s not yet time to meet the lord above
No, it´s not yet time to meet the lord above

Robyn


on Candy Cane Children

The meaning of this song is basically saying the older you get, the less fun Christmas becomes usually do to adulthood. The lines "don't you know your name?...", probably refers to the adults telling kids to grow up as if they're saying "Do you know how old you are? You're getting too old for this stuff." Probably why he put the lines "nobody knows how to talk to children". Also, he puts the lines "think again" after a thought of one of the kids thinking of wishing to participate in Christmas activities. As if they're thinking "Yeah I probably AM too old for this.." "364 more tears girl" the sadness of getting older. Not participating feels like a missed opportunity and causes even more sadness..
