Am
Lit
tle girl of G
lit
tle Am
wit
,
Stretch your little Dm
mind 
a bit.
My Am
eyes 
are large to G
pierce 
the night;
My Am
teeth 
are long and G
sharp 
and Am
white
.
The Am
woods
man sought to G
end 
my life 
With Am
wolfs
bane G
and 
E
silver 
Am
knife
.
His Dm
throat 
is C
torn 
from G
ear 
to E
ear
,
The Am
bet
ter not to G

Chorus:
For Dm
am the Am
old 
one
Of Dm
fur
, flesh, and E
bone
.
And Dm
am the Am
cold 
one
You G
must 
face aAm
lone
.

Your mother did her very best
To train you for this final test,
Then sent you off to Grandma s bed,
The full moon waning overhead.
You ve basked in Mother s care enough;
Now prove to me you have the stuff.
And if you fail, you won t go back,
For this is how we thin the pack.

(Chorus)

The secret that your blood conceals
Is not for those whose chat reveals
The whereabouts of all their kin
To strangers with a wolfish grin.
Now see me change before your eyes
As I cast off my human guise.
Your caution now is far too late.
Granddaughter, fool, come meet your fate!
