Press Release

Better not step upon a crack

Boogeyman put you in his sack!

 

Break a mirror or spill some salt
Boogeyman says it’s all your fault!

 

His face in the shadows, breathe on your neck

You know he’s behind you, don’t turn your back!

 

Walk under a ladder or see a black cat
Boogeyman says you’re tasty and fat!

 

Up from under your bed there is no safe place

The last thing you'll see is the Boogeyman's face!

 

If I should die before I wake
Boogeyman gets my soul to take!

 

Run as far and fast as you can
There is no escaping the Boogeyman!
