This is the first song from Hamlet the Musical. Here are the lyrics to this song.
(Song #1, “The Ravings of a Ghost.”)
Francisca: We have something we must tell to Hamlet.
Marcella: There’s a ghost who comes to us each night.
Francisca: And the ghost looks just like Hamlet’s father
Marcella: With a face that’s pale and deathly white.
Horatio: But I wonder why this apparition
Never offers you a single word.
Francisca: We suspect he’ll only speak to Hamlet.
Hamlet: By my soul, this really is absurd!
(Ghost appears as all but Hamlet exit in fear.)
Ghost: Oh, I am the spirit of your father,
And I’m doomed to haunt these castle walls
Till the crimes against me are atoned for
And that creep who is your uncle falls!
For it was your uncle dear who killed me
Just so he could further his career
And your mother married him so quickly
After he dropped poison in my ear!
Hamlet: Boy, oh boy! He really put it to me!
But what really bothers me the most
Is the fact that I am now expected
To believe the ravings of a ghost!
If I think my uncle was the killer
I should have some way to verify.
If the ghost was speaking to me truly.
I must surely make my uncle die!
