Hi all,

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?
