HUSH, HUSH, HUSH, HERE COMES THE BOGEY MAN Benson / Lowton as rec by Val Rosing w Henry Hall & The BBC Dance Orch 1932 Children, have you ever met the bogey man before? No, of couse 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 bogey man, Don't let him come too close to you, he'll catch you if he can! Just pretend that you're crocodile, And you will find that bogey man will run away a mile! Say "Shoo shoo!", and stick him with a pin, Bogey man will very nearly jump out of his skin! Say "Buzz buzz!", just like the wasp that stings, Bogey man will think you are an elephant with wings! Hush, hush, hush, here comes the bogey man; Tell him you've got soldiers in your bed, For he will never guess that they are only made of lead! Say "Hush hush!", he'll think thatb you're asleep, If you make a lovely snore away he'll softly creep! Sing this tune, you chuildren one and all, Bogey man will run away, he'll think 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 bogey man no longer frightens you; Uncle Henry's very kindly told you what to do! Hush, hush, hush, here comes the bogey man, Don't let him come too close to you, he'll catch you if he can! Just pretend your teddy bear's a dog, Then shout out "Fetch him Teddy!", and he'll hop off like a frog! Say "Miaow!", pretend that you're a cat, He'll think that you will scratch him, that will make him fall down flat! Just pretend he isn't really there, You will find that bogey man will finish in mid air! Here's one way to catch him without fail, Just keep a little salt with you and put it on his tail!
