A horror rewrite of the nursery rhyme for 'Monsters Under The Bed'.
Hush, Little Baby

Hush, little Baby, don't say a word,
Mama's gonna find you a skeleton bird.

And if that skeleton bird don't sing,
Mama's gonna give it a broken wing.

And if that wing falls as you pass,
Mama's gonna give it an eye of glass.

And if that eye of glass gets broke,
Mama's gonna hang the bird by a rope.

And if that piece of rope does fray,
Mama's gonna get some more without delay.

And if that skeleton bird gets free
Mama's gonna fix things - wait and see.

And if that skeleton bird breaks apart,
Moma's gonna glue it back as it did start.

And if that skeleton bird falls down
You'll still be the sweetest little baby in town.
