"Hush Hush Hush Here Comes The Bogey Man" as written by and Lawton/brown/smith/lang/benson....
Children, have you ever met the bogey man before?
No, of course you haven't for you're much too good I'm sure
Don't you be afraid of him if he should visit you
He's a great big coward so I'll tell you what to do

Hush hush hush, here comes the bogey man
Don't let him come too close to you, he'll catch you if he can
Just pretend that you're a crocodile
and you will find the bogey man will run away a mile

Say shoo shoo and stick him with a pin
Bogey man will very nearly jump out of his skin
Say buzz buzz just like the wasp that stings
Bogey man will think you are an elephant with wings

Hush hush hush, here comes the bogey man
Tell him you've got soldiers in your bed
For he will never guess that they are only made of lead

Say hush hush, he'll think that you're asleep
If you make a lovely snore, away he'll softly creep
Sing this tune, you children, one and all
Bogey man will run away, he'll think it's Henry Hall!

When the shadows of the evening creep across the sky
And your mummy comes upstairs to sing a lullaby
Tell her that the bogey man no longer frightens you
Uncle Henry's very kindly told you what to do

Hush hush hush, here comes the bogey man
Don't let him come too close to you, he'll catch you if he can
Just pretend your teddy bear's a dog
and shout out "Fetch him teddy!" and he'll hop off like a frog

Say miaoow, he'll think that you're a cat
He'll think you may scratch him, that will make him fall down flat
Just pretend he isn't really there
You will find the bogey man will finish in thin air

Here's one way to catch him without fail
Just keep a little salt with you and pop it on his tail!

    General CommentThis is such a great old song! I first heard it in a computer game and have loved it ever since. I think it is also in Jeepers Creepers.
