Hush little baby, say not a word
There never was a mockingbird
Roses are red until they die
Oh, soon enough like you and I

Hush my child, 'twill be alright
That is, if you survive the night

Twinkle, Twinkle little star
Sky so black, the moon so far
Mary had a little lamb,
And the fleece was black as coal
When you fall asleep tonight,
Then the world will steal your soul

Hush my child, 'twill be alright
That is, if you survive the night

Rockaby babe, in the tree  tops
When the wind blows, life then stops
When the bough breaks the cradle will fall
And dead will be baby, smile and all

Hush my child, 'twill be alright
That is, if you survive the night
I made some changes to make it flow better, but it is still the same idea. I am allowing one of my fans to use it in one of their stories, and I will inform ya when she completes it.

This is amazing! I think it would make an awesome goth metal song, like something Type O Negative would do or something. Excellent work!

This is awesome. I love the clever way you used lines from old nursery rhymes and lullabies, but in a way that was fresh and creative.

Wow. :o That... was... awesome. I like it when something I'm familiar with is twisted into an unrecognizable ball of creepy sadisticness (is that a word?). It makes me so happy. Somehow.
