Reaver's Lullaby

from by Marc Gunn

lyrics

Close your eyes and sleep
There are reavers in your dreams
Go to sleep my darling
There's a reaver underneath your bed
The reavers in your bed are gonna eat your face

Stay in your bed
There are griswalds on the floor
The reavers in your bed
Are gonna eat your face

Sugar and spice and everything nice
Why do you think we say that
It's so the reavers in your bed
Will want to eat your face

You used to have a sister
She wouldn't go to sleep
So the reavers beneath her bed
Ate her face

Do not call for your mother
Who is that you think who let the reavers in
To eat your face

Snakes and snails and puppy dog tails
Who can account for the taste of reavers
The reavers in your bed
Are gonna eat your face

Baby don't you cry
Or the reavers won't wait til you fall asleep
Before they eat your face

My father sang this song to me
But he slipped and fell on a griswald
And the reavers beneath my bed
Ate his face

That is not a blanket
Good night.
