Have you heard this creepy nursery rhyme?

One fine day in the middle of the night,
Two dead boys got up to fight.
Back-to-back they faced one another,
Drew their swords and shot each other.
One was blind and the other couldn't see,
So they chose a dummy for a referee.
A blind man went to see fair play,
A dumb man went to shout "hooray!"
A deaf policeman heard the noise,
And came and shot the two dead boys.
A paralysed donkey walking by,
Kicked the copper in the eye,
Sent him through a rubber wall,
Into a dry ditch and drowned them all.
(If you don't believe this lie is true,
Ask the blind man -- he saw it too!)
would you ever tell that to your kids?!! My dad told me that when I was little and it scared the crap out of me.

  • That is creepy.

    My mom used to sing this song to us:

    The worms crawl in
    the worms crawl out
    the ants play pinochle on your snout
    Your brain turn a moldy green
    and pus pour out shaving cream
    spread in on some moldy bread
    and that's what you eat
    when you are dead

    I may have gotten some of it wrong.

  • I think I've heard portions of sounds familiar. A little morbid, but I can see my child saying things like "you don't shoot with a stab someone with it". Yeah. I know. School is WONDERFUL for educating them! lol

  • I heard a different and shorter variation of that from the old lady my genetic father was married to:
    One bright day in the middle of the night
    Two dead men got up to fight.
    Back to back they faced each other
    Drew their swords and shot each other.

    I told her sarcastically it was so funny I couldn't even laugh. Funny thing is, I still remember the dumb thing.
