There are a lot of songs with these words and thoughts in the titles or lyrics. I did find this one though, and I remember hearing it quite a lot way back when. It’s a funny one about a haunted house.

The song’s story goes that the person moves into a haunted house, and he meets up with a very strange spook. He tells the spook that nothing is going to scare him away, and he’ll still be there when the morning comes. ๐Ÿ™‚

“Haunted House”, by ‘Jumpin’ Gene Simmons, was released in 1964. It became his first and only top 40 hit record, and was what he was best known for.ย  It was his cover of a 1958 Johnny Fuller song. Many artists also covered this one, including Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs, Jerry Lee Lewis, and it’s originator, Johnny Fuller.

I just moved in my new house today
Movin’ was hard but I got squared away
Bells started ringin’ and chains rattled loud
I knew I’d moved in a haunted house

Still I made up in my mind to stay
Nothin’ was a-gonna drive me away
When I seen somethin’ that give me the creep
Had one big eye and a-two big feet

I stood right still and I did the freeze
He did the stroll right up to me
Made a noise with his feet that sound like a drum
(Say, you’ll be here when the mornin’ come?)

Say yes, I’ll be here when the mornin’ come
I’ll be right here and I ain’t gonna run
I bought this house now you know I am bold
Ain’t no haint gonna run me off

In my kitchen my stove was a-blazin’ hot
The coffee was a-boilin’ in the pot
The grease had melted in my hand
I had a hunk of meat in my hand

From outer space there sat a man
On a hot stove with the pots and pans
“Say, that’s hot” I began to shout
He drank a hot coffee right from the spout

Drank a hot grease from the fryin’ pan
He said to me “Now, you better run”
(And don’t be here when the mornin’ come)

Say yes, I’ll be here when the mornin’ come
I’ll be right here and I ain’t gonna run
I bought this house now you know I am bold
