Episode 13 - The Fire Spook

Cow molestation, spontaneous fires and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle - The Fire Spook (although, I really wanted to call this episode "Old Macdonald Had A Farm, and on That Farm He Had a Spook!").

Listen now - The Fire Spook

The Macdonald farm

Curious visitors at the Macdonald farm



Yesterday, upon the stair,
I met a man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
I wish, I wish he’d go away...

When I came home last night at three

The man was waiting there for me
But when I looked around the hall
I couldn’t see him there at all!
Go away, go away, don’t you come back any more!
Go away, go away, and please don’t slam the door... (slam!)

Last night I saw upon the stair

A little man who wasn’t there
He wasn’t there again today
Oh, how I wish he’d go away
