Carry On Up The Charts: The Best Of The Beautiful South album at
The Beautiful South's, "Woman In The Wall"
The Lyrics:
I hear her cry, all day, all night
I hear her voice, from deep within the wall
Made a cross from knitting needles
Made a grave from Hoover bags
Especially for the woman in the wall
The whole song is pretty creepy (it's about a man who kills his wife and bricks her corpse up in the wall) but it's all sung to such a bouncy, cheery melody that if you're not listening to the words you'd be forgiven for thinking "Aw, what a jolly little singalong ditty this is...!"
