the bone rattlin’ man
wanders midnight streets
callin’ for the little uns
to come out
and play

necklace of phalanx
janglin’ round his throat
callin’ for the little uns
to come out
and play

the bone rattlin’ man
grins a shark tooth grin
callin’ for the little uns
to come out
and play

so run to bed
little un
and tuck yourself
in tight

’cause when the
moon is high
and the streets
are dark
the bone rattlin’ man
comes callin’
tonight

so when you hear
the phalanx janglin’
from the necklace at his throat
close your eyes
say a prayer
and hope he passes by

the bone rattlin’ man
makes his rounds tonight
callin’ for the little uns
to come out
and play

so little un
if you want to keep
your pretty little fingers
do as I say
and
go to sleep
