White Stripes, The - Little Ghost 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 moment 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

    It's been two years since I last listened to this...
    Still have the lyrics memorized :)

    My dad played this when I was little and I always heard "meatball up above"

    O.... P....

  6. P.... i....

    I loved this song from paranorman!!

  7. K.... D....

    Honestly I don’t really like the chicks vocals but other than that the song is top tier

  8. m.... m....

    I am amazed at how many songs by the White Stripes speak to my life experiences. I once had a fantasy about Rita Hayworth, I once had a delusion that I was making love to a female ghost and I once had a female married math tutor who was getting pervy with me. (Take Take Take, Little Ghost and Black Math in respective order)

  9. b.... k....

    My beloved husband of 35 years, many adventures, struggles, laughs and devotion to each other, passed from cancer in Feb 2006. Since I was 17 yrs old and he was 4 yrs older, we had been together. Back in the 60s and 70s you started "living together" without being married. Our age group back then, was changing the clothing, the music and the general uptight moral majority. Anyway, he passed around 200 am, I was summoned to awake from where I slept, the couch beside his hospital bed, in what used to be a dining room.
    I grabbed his hand and kissed him and told him it was ok to go. I watched the overhead light slowly dim and then slowly coming back on. The energy of the spirit leaving. I kept denying his visits, but the younger grandkids would see him all the time. Especially the 1 yr old grandson. He would see him sitting on the couch, say his name, etc
    When I found this cd, and the Little Ghost song, it was perfect. I was always skeptical about his visits after he passed away, and denying him talking to me all of the time, I used this song to kinda tease my husband's spirit. After 2 yrs, I really got lonely, missing his entire presence. So "IF YOU REALLY ARE AROUND" Little Ghost, Little Ghost can you scare me up a little bit of love?!!
    Then I met Buddy. He drove 4 hrs to meet me! We are together 11 years. now......

  10. A.... A....

    I almost thought Loretta Lynn was somewhere in this song..reminds me of Portland Oregon by her and jack

  11. p.... ....

    every stripes album has a 'little' song on it

  12. W.... S....

    After watching ParaNorman, I looked this up. Thanks to Jack, Meg, Chris Butler, and Sam Fell

  13. O.... ....

    My mom would listen to the white stripes almost every time we were in the car so a song I don’t really remember i know almost all the lyrics

  14. S.... t....

  15. R.... H....

    "The first moment that I met her I did not expect a specter." Best lyric ever?

  16. S.... ....

    I was watching Paranorman and thought this sounded like it would be a White Stripes song and sure enough once I googled it I realized it was.

  17. M.... B....

    I'm here thanks to Paranorman. Never would had thought White Stripes sung this.

  18. S.... S....

  21. M.... C....

    Me and my little brother love this song 😊

  22. P.... H....

    must have looked like I was dancin' with the wall

  23. c.... p....

    when i was 5 i said" turn on da ghost song"

  24. K.... ....

    Throwback to preschool when my dad would play this in the car because it was his only really clean song

  25. F.... ....

    Awesome song. Heard it first on Paranorman as others, but shouldn't we just be glad that good music gets around like that? :)

  26. F.... ....

    I was dancing with the waaaall....

  27. P.... D....

    Meg's lower pitch backing vocals really make this song great. Jack does the tenor/alto..but his sister Meg does the tenor/bass. Beautifully done, one of my all time favorites, & i sing it late nights @ work because the place i work is seriously haunted & i work alone as a janitor.

    P.... D....

    Nicholas Dobos meg is jacks ex wife.

    P.... D....

    Denver Scott they finally cleared that up? I thought they were like dating 15 years ago, but maybe they were related? I think celebrity deathmatch must have confused me.

    P.... D....

    Nicholas Dobos yes, I thought the same thing about them being brother and sister. Jack was set to play at a bar that meg was working at and he asked for someone to accompany him on stage on drums, meg stepped up, they played the gig and it was well received, that's where the white stripes got its start. I for one cannot imagine life without their music. I love all of Jack's other work solo and with different bands, but i always comes back to the white stripes. For sure one of my all time favorites.

    P.... D....

    Denver Scott i guess he's lonely, but he ain't that lonely yet...(to do his own sister i mean, LOL! J/k) another one of my faves

    P.... D....

    Lol his sister lol

  28. L.... ....

    My mom played this in the car a long time ago, I just watched Paranorman and i decided that I should find the song again.

  29. C.... S....
