Lyrics

Ouija board
Would you work for me?
I have got to say Hello
To an old friend

Ouija board, ouija board, ouija board
Would you work for me?
I have got to get through
To a good friend

Well, She has now gone
From this Unhappy Planet
With all the carnivores
And the destructors on it

Ouija board, ouija board, ouija board
Would you help me
Because I still do feel
So horribly lonely
Would you, ouija board
Would you, ouija board
Would you help me
And I just can't find
My place in this world

Well, she has now gone
From this Unhappy Planet
With all the carnivores
And the destructors on it

Oh hear my voice ("hear my voice")
Oh hear my voice ("hear my voice")
Hear my voice ("hear my voice")
Hear my voice ("hear my voice")
The table is rumbling...

The table is rumbling
The glass is moving
"No, I was NOT pushing that time"
It spells S.T.E.V.E.N.

The table is rumbling
The glass is moving
"No, I was NOT pushing that time":
P.U.S.H.O. double F.

Well, she has now gone
From this Unhappy Planet
With all the carnivores
And the destructors on it

"Ouija Board, Ouija Board" is a song by English singer-songwriter Morrissey, released as a single in November 1989. The track appears along with its B-side "Yes, I Am Blind" on the compilation album Bona Drag. A shorter edit, omitting a verse, appeared on the 2010 reissue of Bona Drag. The single was poorly received by the music press and the public; its highest position on the UK Singles Chart was No. 18, making it the first solo Morrissey single not to reach the top 10. "Yes, I Am Blind" was composed by Morrissey's ex-Smiths partner Andy Rourke, and the picture on the sleeve was taken by Anton Corbijn.
