★ Hush hush hush ~

Children, have you ever met the Bogeyman 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 Bogeyman
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 that Bogeyman will run away a mile

Say Shoo, shoo
And stick him with a pin
Boogeyman will very nearly jump out of his skin

Say Buzz-Buzz
Just like the wasp that stings
Bogeyman will think you are an elephant with wings

Hush, hush, hush
Here comes the Bogeyman
Tell him you 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
Bogeyman will run away
He’ll thinks it’s Henry Hall

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

Hush, hush, hush
Here comes the Bogeyman
Don’t let him come too close to you
He’ll catch you if you can

Just pretend, your teddy bear’s a dog
Then shout out
“Fetch him teddy!”
And he’ll hop off like a frog

Say “Meow!”
Pretend that you’re a cat
He’ll will think you may scratch and
That will make him fall down flat

Just pretend he isn’t really there
You will find that Bogeyman will vanish in thin air

Here’s One Way
To catch him without fail:
Just keep a little salt with you
And put it on his tail
