Lucy...it's time for bed now, and you need your rest
So lie down in your coffin dear, and sleep tight
I'll wake you when Daddy's here, alright?
No No don't...d-d-don't cry little girl
Little girl from head to toe
Deep into the ground you go...down...DOWN!
Sleep tight little baby, sleep tight below the ground
Sleep tight little baby, nowhere to run around
OH...The worms, Oh...The worms
Is that your Daddy...your Daddy?
Sleep tight little baby, sleep tight below the ground
Sleep tight little baby, nowhere to run around
OH...The worms, Oh...The worms
Is that your Daddy...your Daddy?
And as I'm waiting by the cemetery gates
For her father to show
Something's pounding at my head
It's like I...I, I can still hear her SCREAMING
Oh Lucy, I'm doing all this for you
Oh Lucy, I didn't mean to, I didn't want to
But you've got to
Sleep tight little baby, sleep tight below the ground
Sleep tight little baby, nowhere to run around
OH...The worms, Oh...The worms
Is that your Daddy...your Daddy?
So you came at last ? Let me see your heart
Let me see your face, you son of a bitch
I see a baby crying, I see a little tear
Oh yeah, I know you're trying
But you can't stop the fear...DADDY!
If you ever want to see your little girl again
You better do as I say
Dear Mr. Mayor, welcome to my humble tomb
Come inside, you know you have to
