The Girl with the Knife in her Head
This girl was born with a knife in her head
- a butcher knife – she should be dead!
People laugh and people stare
She tries to hide the knife in her hair!
No one thought that she was cool
So she did not go to school.
They said she should be a side show attraction.
And made fun of her with no satisfaction,
The torture lasted until the tenth year,
The never thought she was anything to fear.
Now no one laughs at the knife in her head,
Nobody laughs because they're all dead.
They would still be alive,
If they had tried,
To be just a little nicer
It wouldn’t have ended with a meat slicer
The Rat Princess
She was poor, she was a rat.
Dressed as a queen, went to the ball
Then the prince came to call
He proposed and that was that.
She married him dressed in white
Her sisters were a bit suspicious
Were distracted by the cake – Delicious!
They were excited for that night
Blew out the light and said good night
The prince woke up in the night to find his cap
Instead found his princess was a rat!
The prince did not think this was right!
He took a candelabra to her head
And now the rat princess - is dead!
The Princess' Fate
Pretended to be princess pretty
Prince proposed, what a pity
She was nothing but a rat
So he killed her after that
Little Billy liked to joke.
He Played Pranks on everyone.
But he was the only one having fun.
He always played pranks on older folk.
Little Billy made a plan,
To Pull a prank on Mr. Bood,
The plan he made was so good,
It would surely scare the man!
Little Billy dressed as foot rot!
Billy went to the door ready for fun!
but Mr. Bood pulled out a gun!
And Hit poor Billy, with one shot!
Mr. Bood shrugged and went inside,
Billy still lays right where he died.
Madame Rose, The Acrobat
Madame Rose, the acrobat
Drew in crowds to the circus tent
They threw flowers and coins during lent
Everyone loved her even the rats
Everyone loved her except Mr. Firl
A hand in the circus and aspiring tightrope walker
Madame got all the attention she even had stalkers
So Mr. Firl made a plan to get rid of the girl
Mr. Firl and the other hands set up the circus stands
Mr. Firl tied the ropes and tightened the spokes
Time for the show! The crowd poured in and clapped their hands
The ringmaster introduced Madame and made jokes
But Madame fell and Mr. Firl began to Dance.
The Man and the Dancer
The man the great romancer
Tried to find a pretty girl
Found one and her name was pearl
She was a young ballroom dancer
So he started to romance her
He said he was a wealthy earl
And made a plan to lure the girl
To a cottage and disaster
He compared her to the moon
He compared her to the sun
She hoped it was an endless June
He told her they would have fun
She never thought she would meet her doom
And now her life is done.
The Ballroom Dancer
She should have known not to trust the man
When he held her close and clutched her hand
She should have left when it was light
Now she wanders a ghost in the night
