As i mentioned last week I have been reading a book called "No Go the
Bogeyman" by Marina Warner. In a chapter about lullabies she found a
1930s sheet music cover for what looks to be a Yama Yama Man-like
creepy song called "Hush, Hush, Hush" with music by Ray Benson and
lyrics by Rex Lowton (with a note that it was recorded by the Henry
Hall BBC Dance Orchestra.) I found a partial mp3 file of it at
http://www.as-it-was.co.uk/SupaNames/Music/Tunes/Bogieman.mp2 and it
is not as "scary" as Yama Yama Man.
I am away from my record library for a few weeks so I cannot check to
see if I have the full version.
Anybody have the complete lyrics?
