"If you want a place in the sun, you have to expect a few blisters" - Loretta Young


When I was just a little girl
My mom and dad tucked me into bed
They'd say
Goodnight
Sleep tight
Close your eyes
Before Mr. Bogeyman comes
Before Mr. Bogeyman comes

 

Each night I would toss and turn
Until all my worries reached the moon
But then
I woke
Get up
Time for school
Mr. Bogeyman is waiting for you

 

Please Mr. Bogeyman
Don’t you dare come and claim me
What have I ever done to you?
I just try to be innocent

 

When I was just a little girl
My mom and dad tucked me into bed
They'd say
Goodnight
Sleep tight
Close your eyes
Before Mr. Bogeyman comes
Before Mr. Bogeyman comes

 

The days went on and on
And yet he remained right next to me
He’d say
Little girl
Stop there
Don’t move
I want to play with you

 

Please Mr. Bogeyman
Don’t you dare come and claim me
What have I ever done to you?
I just try to be innocent

 

Why must you haunt me?
Even when the sun has risen?
Please don’t take me away
I’m not naughty
I swear I’m not
I’m a good girl

 

When I was just a little girl
My mom and dad tucked me into bed

 

Please Mr. Bogeyman
Don’t you dare come and claim me
I'm begging you please
What have I ever done to you?
I just try to be innocent
It’s true
I just try to be innocent
