Children's Rhymes

From A Nightmare On Elm Street

(Based on 1, 2, buckle my shoe.)

One, two, Freddy’s coming for you.
Three, four, better lock your door.
Five, six, get a crucifix.
Seven, eight, better stay up late.
Nine, ten, never sleep again!

From The Woman in Black

During afternoon tea, there’s a shift in the air,
a bone-trembling chill that tells you she’s there.
There are those who believe the whole town is cursed,
but the house in the marsh was by far the worst.
What she wants is unknown, but she always comes back,
the spectre of darkness, the woman in black.

From Dead Silence

Beware the stare of Mary Shaw.
She had no children, only her dolls.
If you see her in your dreams,
be sure you never, ever scream
or she’ll rip your tongue out at the seam

Samara’s Song From The Ring

Round we go, the world is spinning
When it stops it’s just beginning
Sun comes up, we laugh and we cry
Sun goes down and then we all die

From Fritz Lang’s M

The man in black will soon be here.
With his cleaver’s blade so true.
Just you wait, it won’t be long.
He’ll make mincemeat out of YOU!

From Night of the Hunter

Hing, hang, hung.
See what the hangman done.
Hung, hang, hing.
See the robber swing.

From Hush, Hush Sweet Charlotte

Chop chop, Sweet Charlotte
Chop chop, till he’s dead
Chop chop, Sweet Charlotte
Chop off his hand and head.

From Buffy the Vampire Slayer

Can’t even shout. Can’t even cry.
The Gentlemen are coming by.
Looking in windows, knocking on doors…
They need to take seven and they might take yours…
Can’t call to mom. Can’t say a word.
You’re gonna die screaming but you won’t be heard.

From Dr. Giggles

(Suggested by a member named “Huntress of the North”)

This town has a doctor and his name is Rendell
Stay away from his house ’cause he’s the doctor from Hell.
He killed all his patients, every last one,
And cut out their hearts… purely for fun.
So if you’re from Moorehigh and you get sick
Fall on your knees and pray you die quick.

A Child’s Prayer

Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray the Lord my soul to keep;
Should I die before I wake,
I pray the Lord my soul to take.

A Child’s Lullaby

If you die before you wake,
Do not cry and do not ache.
Nothing’s ever yours to keep.
So close your eyes and go to sleep.

A Mother’s Rhyme

Here’s the little piggy, see his snout.
Slit him open, and the guts fall out.

From Oranges and Lemons

Here comes a candle to light you to bed,
And here comes a chopper to chop off your head!
Chip chop, chip chop, the last man’s dead.

Lizzie Borden

(Lizzie Borden was a woman who was suspected of killing her parents in 1892.)

Lizzie Borden took an axe
And gave her father forty whacks.
When she saw what she had done
She gave her mother forty-one.

Mary Ann Cotton

(Mary Ann Cotton was an English woman who is believed to have murdered 21 people in the late 1800s by arsenic poisoning)

Mary Ann Cotton
She’s dead and she’s rotten
Lying in bed with her eyes wide open
Sing? Sing? What song should I sing?
Mary Anne Cotton is tied up in string.
Where? where? She’s up in the air
And now they’re selling puddings for a penny a pair.

Doctor Ruxton

(Buck Ruxton was a doctor in England who killed his wife and his maid in 1935.)

Red stains on the carpet, red stains on your knife
Oh Doctor Ruxton, you murdered your wife.
The nursemaid she saw you and threatened to tell.
Oh Doctor Ruxton, you killed her as well.

Fritz Haarmann

(Fritz Haarmann murdered 27 boys and young men in the 1920s in Germany)

Just you wait ’til it’s your time,
Haarmann will come after you,
And with his chopper, oh so fine,
He’ll make mincemeat out of you.

Belle Gunness

(Belle Gunness was a woman who murdered over 40 men in America in the 1880s.)

Belle Gunness was a lady fair, in Indiana State.
She weighed about three hundred pounds and that is quite some weight.
That she was stronger than a man, her neighbors all did own;
She butchered hogs right easily and did it all alone.
But hogs were just a sideline she indulged in now and then;
Her favorite occupation was the butchering of men.

Miss Mary Mack

Miss Mary Mack Mack Mack
She’s dressed in black black black
she has a knife knife knife
Stuck in her back back back
She cannot breathe breathe breathe
She cannot cry cry cry
That’s why she begs begs begs
She begs to die die die

From Bluebeard

At last the girl could not refrain,
and turned the little key,
And looked within, and fainted straight
the horrid sight to see.

For there upon the floor was blood,
and on the walls were wives,
For Bluebeard first had married them,
then cut their throats with knives.

From We Have Always Lived in the Castle

Merricat, said Connie, would you like a cup of tea?
“Oh no,” said Merricat, “you’ll poison me.”
Merricat, said Connie, would you like to go to sleep?
Down in the boneyard ten feet deep!

Dead Men

Dead men, dead men, swinging in a tree
How many dead men do you see?
Tongue turned blue and face gone grey
Watch them as they twist and sway.

The first one killed the butcher man
Then cooked him in a frying pan
Served him to his hungry guests
And gave them seconds on request

The next one with his smile and sweets
Stole poor children off the streets
To men who dressed unsavory
He sold them into slavery

Dead men, dead men, swinging in a tree
How many dead men do you see?
Six feet long and six men wide
Around their necks the noose is tied.

Three Children on the Ice

Three children sliding on the ice
Upon a summer’s day,
As it fell out, they all fell in,
The rest they ran away.

If these children had been at school,
Or sliding on dry ground,
I’d bet you all a pretty penny
They would not have drowned.

Parents who have children dear,
And others who have none,
If you want to keep them safe and sound
Please keep them safe at home.

The Hanging Tree From The Hunger Games

Are you, are you, coming to the tree
where they strung up a man they say murdered three.
Strange things have happened here, no stranger would it be,
if we met up at midnight in the hanging tree.

Are you, are you, coming to the tree
where the dead man called out for his love to flee.
Strange things have happened here no stranger would it be,
if we me up at midnight in the hanging tree.

Are you, are you, coming to the tree
where I told you to run so we would both be free.
Strange things have happened here no stranger would it be
if we met up at midnight in the haning tree.

Are you, are you, coming to the tree
wear your necklace of rope and hang side by side with me.
Strange things have happened here no stranger would it be
if we met up at midnight in the hanging tree.

Three Sons

There was an old woman who had three sons,
Called Jerry and James and John,
Jerry was hanged and James was drowned,
John was lost at sea and never found;
And that was an end of her three sons,
Called Jerry and James and John.

Two Dead Boys

One bright day in the middle of the night,
Two dead boys got up to fight.
Back to back they faced each other,
drew their swords and shot each other.
A deaf policeman heard the noise
and ran to save the two dead boys.
And if you don’t believe it’s true,
go ask the blind man, he saw it too.

O’Leary and O’Reilly

O’Leary is dead and O’Reilly don’t know it.
O’Reilly is dead and O’Leary don’t know it.
They both are dead in the very same bed,
And neither one knows that the other is dead.

The Desert

Out on the windswept desert, that desolate stretch of land,
One man spied another, lying in the sand
Said one man to the other, “What makes you lie that way?”
But the other did not answer for he’d been dead since May.


Willy was a helpful boy but quite near-sighted,
He built a fire in the fireplace and self-ignited;
Now, the wind is blowing cold and the room is getting chilly,
And not one of us wants to put out poor Willy.

The Song That Never Ends

This is the song that never ends
And it goes on and on my friends
Some people started singing it
not knowing what it was
And they’ll just keep on singing it
forever just because
This is the song that never ends


  • it actually is Ring around the rosie, a pocket full of posies, ashes, ashes, we all fall down!

  • mary mary quite contrary had a knife that she would carry
    if you see her you should run cause if you don’t
    your sure to be gone

  • I’m confused . . . why are all you lot saying it’s “Ring around the rosie, a pocket full of posies, ashes, ashes, we all fall down!”? It’s “Ring a-ring a-roses, a pocket full of posies, a-tissue, a-tissue, we all fall down!!”

  • Ladybug, ladybug, fly away home. Your house is on fire and your children are gone. (I know this in German too lol)
    Marienwürmchen, fliegen hin, dein häuschen brennt, dein kinder schreien. (actually your children cry. The next line tells that they are being eaten by a spider. :D)

  • OK, this is going to sound really odd. I just woke up from a dream about my childhood toys and I was crying because the last part of the dream was a song about a black baby doll, which I’m pretty sure I never had, but I was living in New Orleans at the time (I’m white) and I had black friends so maybe it was one of theirs?

    Anyway, the song was so vivid that I wrote down the lyrics and came and tried to find the song on the internet. I found this site and though I’d post it and see it anyone may have heard of it..or I’m just nuts and writing horrible songs in my dreams… I’ve never written any song lyrics, I don’t even listen to music and this feels like a memory and the tune won’t leave my head.

    It starts:
    I had a little baby doll and it was black like me.
    I loved that little baby doll and I know that she loved me.
    (some missing here?)

    They took me from my bed one night, even though I was just three.
    They tied a rope around my neck and hung me from a tree.

    The sheriff cried when he cut me down and gave me to my family.
    They laid me in a box of wood and then they buried me.
    A stranger man came and took my hand and he said to me,
    One day they’ll know what they have done and all your kind will be free.

    I’m wondering if maybe I heard it at some religious place. I was raised Catholic and went to some Catholic church children’s classes. I’m really puzzled by this. Actually, it’s creepy and really sad.

  • Mary had a little knife, she used to cut off heads. She cleans the knife but she will use it again and if your scared do go outside cause Mary might be there.

  • The Strange Girl

    They looked at me with curious looks and looks of distrust,
    “Her hair looks like bloody rust!”
    “She smells like old milk!”
    “I’ll bet you a fine penny she’ll cry when I kick!”
    I stood there, near the board, as they ranted and chided,
    You may think I would’ve spilled tears,
    But no, I smiled, one that reached my ear,
    And said with a quiet voice, “You’ll soon experience fear, my dears; because all you did was brag,
    But soon one of you will be wrung out like a rag.
    One of you will succumb to greed
    The other will pay the Lord no heed.”
    To this they all fell silent, then they laughed and laughed and laughed,
    But no, nobody listed, now did they?
    Johnny should’ve bet a fine penny he didn’t spin so fast,
    He spun and spun all for fun,
    And fast and fast and fast.
    Until At Last
    His body twisted like so,
    His blood flowed out with nowhere else to go.
    “Oh It’s True!” said one, who stared at him with horror,
    “Don’t be a fool, you!” said another.
    But I just smiled and backed out, while the wind set my hair awhirl
    Because nobody listened
    To the Strange Girl.

  • Hell
    He woke in a panic
    He was so very frantic
    He smelt fire
    But where was this fire
    It was so very dire
    That he find the blazing fire
    He looked everywhere
    But by then the smoke filled the air
    He could not bare not knowing where the fire was
    He was a little warm so he thought he’d get some water
    It didn’t work he began to get hotter
    He went to the restroom to splash water on his face
    When he saw his reflection
    He was the one on fire
    He couldn’t stand the seering pain of his flesh being burnt
    He began to yell
    And that’s when he relized he was in hell

  • little girl
    little girl home alone
    got sucked inside the twilight zone
    saw a beast so big and hairy
    she screamed and thought oh so scary
    she ran and ran
    as fast as she can
    she tripped and fell
    down a well
    the beast saw and thought oh whatever
    and the little girl was stuck down there forever

  • I Witnessed:
    Blood is red and tears are clear
    I am witnessing
    a little girl crying in fear
    I have to save her
    if only I could reach
    but I coudnt anyway for my arms are to weak
    footsteps and angry slurred words
    getting louder he is coming near
    in my mind all I saw
    was a hearse
    it is carrying the little girl
    I came back to the scene
    I saw the father hitting her feirce
    I woke up in my bed the next morning
    and I said just a dream!
    I flipped on the t.v
    and saw in a replay for me
    that horrible murder scene

  • Do Not Disobey

    It was a rainy,gloomy day
    and Itsuki was going outside to play,
    Behind him stood a crazed killer,
    known by doctors as Old Tiller,
    before Itsuki could step outside,
    a knife was driven through his side,
    and just before the young boy died,
    Old Tiller said,”I told you not to disobey,and now by death you shall pay.”

  • To all the people talking about “Ring around the rosies” I always said it as “atichoo atichoo”. Anyway it is actually about the plague.

  • I remember the Two Dead Boys one… it was in Haunting In Connecticut :) Awesome movie <3 And I heard the Mary Ann Cotton one when I was little.. it's pretty messed up considering what it's about :S

  • I have two, one I read in an Agatha Christie book, I don’t know if it originated somewhere else:

    Ten Little Indians

    Ten little Indian boys went out to dine;
    One choked his little self and then there were nine.
    Nine little Indian boys sat up very late;
    One overslept himself and then there were eight.
    Eight little Indian boys traveling in Devon;
    One said he’d stay there and then there were seven.
    Seven little Indian boys chopping up sticks;
    One chopped himself in halves and then there were six.
    Six little Indian boys playing with a hive;
    A bumblebee stung one and then there were five.
    Five little Indian boys going in for law,
    One got in Chancery and then there were four.
    Four little Indian boys going out to sea;
    A red herring swallowed one and then there were three.
    Three little Indian boys walking in the Zoo;
    A big bear hugged one and then there were two.
    Two little Indian boys sitting in the sun;
    One got frizzled up and then there was one.
    One little Indian boy left all alone;
    He went and hanged himself and then there were none.

    And here is the other. It’s from Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark:

    There was a man who lived in leeds,
    He filled his garden full of seeds.
    And when those seeds began to grow,
    It was like a garden filled with snow.
    But when the snow began to melt,
    It was like a ship without a belt.
    And when the ship began to sail,
    It was like a bird without a tail.
    And when the bird began to fly,
    It was like an Eagle in the sky.
    And when the sky began to roar,
    It was like a lion at my door.
    And when the door began to crack,
    It was like a pen knife in my back.
    And when my back began to bleed,
    I was dead, dead, dead indeed!

  • Where is Steven, mommy? He can’t play and I’m sad.
    You mustn’t ask, my darling–Steven has been bad.

    Billy too, and Sally? Did they do something wrong?
    I’m afraid it’s true, child–all your friends are gone.

    Beware of he who took them–he goes by many names.
    The Bogeyman, the Shadowed One, but all are he, the same.

    For every sin a child has, must be a punishment to bear.
    Your friends are now beyond our reach; trapped deep within his lair

    And if they take what is not theirs, there can be no doubt.
    He’ll stretch their skin until it snaps, and all the blood drains out.

    Remember to always behave, for sins he won’t abide.
    He wields a rusty, jagged blade, to cut out your insides.

    The lying little children, with souls selfish and small.
    Will find their wriggling tongues cut out, and nailed to his wall.

    The bullies and their spiteful wrath will find torment as well.
    Soon he will strike them where they stand and drag them into hell.

    Child, you must obey your parents; do everything they say.
    Little ones who do otherwise, he tortures in the flames.

    Beatings cleanse the soul, they say, and that is what he’ll do.
    If you don’t control your anger then you’ll feel his anger too.

    You are your brother’s keeper, remember it always.
    Or else, the Bogeyman will chain you underneath the waves.

    And while the good children live, the bad ones cannot escape
    their fate.
    For once you hear his screeching wail, it’s already too late.

    So do not cry aloud at night, stay hidden in your bed…
    Or the Bogeyman from Silent Hill will come chop off your head.

    From Silent Hill: Homecomings

  • Why is the Jabberwocky poem not here D:?
    That used to scare the holy canoli out of me when I was little. Here it is for those who want to read it.

    ‘Twas brillig. And the slithy toves did gire and gimble in the wabe. All mumsy were the burogroves, and the Momeraths outgrabe.
    “Beware the Jabberwocky my son. The jaws that bite, the claws that catch. Beware the jubjub bird, and shun the frumious bandersnatch.”
    He took his vorpal sword in hand. Long time the manxom foe he sought. So rested he by the tum-tum tree and stood awhile in thought.And as in uffish thought he stood: The Jabberwock, with eyes aflame came whiffiing through the tolgey wood, and he burbled as he came. One two, one two. And through and through the vorpal blade went schnicker-shnack.
    He left it dead.
    And with it’s head he went gallumphing back.
    “And hast thou slain thee Jabberwock? Come to my arms my beamish boy! Oh, frabjous day! Calloo! Calay!” He chortled in his joy.
    Twas brillig. And the slithy toves did gire an gimble in the wabe. All mumsy were the borogroves and the momeraths outgrabe.

  • Gidgey, how stupid can you get. If you really did study it, you would know that it was probably refering to the burning of infected bodies to avoid spreading the diease.

  • ten little monkeys!
    ten little monkeys jumping on the bed,
    one fell off and bumped his head,
    “This is too dangerous” one monkey said.
    “Lets play it safe before we wind up dead.”
    ten little monkeys went out to dine
    one choked on a bone and there where nine.
    nine little monkeys gone fishing with bait,
    a shark swallowed one and there were eight.
    eight little monkeys on a holiday in Deven,
    one fell off a cliff and there were seven.
    seven little monkeys chopping up sticks,
    one chopped too much and there where six.
    six little monkeys trying to stay alive,
    one got shot and there where five.
    five little monkeys went to take a pee,
    one flushed the toilet and there where three.
    three little monkeys went to the zoo,
    a lion got loose and there where two.
    two little monkeys lying in the sun,
    one caught one fire and there was one.
    one little monkey playing with a gun,
    he pulled the trigger and therewas none!

    THE END!!!

  • these arent poems they are rhymes I love hunger games lol that would be cool f they posted all three hunger games it would be really popular

  • This is one my neices and I came up with:
    Blood is red,
    Corpeses are blue,
    Always know,
    I’m the one that killed you

  • Actually the Ashes Ashes part of Ring Around The Rosie is acually Achoo Achoo because if you started sneezing when the plague was going around that meant that you would eventually die soon.

  • Youre Wrong.

    Ring a rosies Referred to the boils the plague gave you.

    The pocketful of posies meant having a posie in your pocket which was thought to keep the plague away. And the posie is a flower, not a herb.

    Atishoo atishoo was of course, the sneezing.

    And we All fall down obviously is death,

  • Well, “Wee Willie Winkie” always scared me:

    Wee Willie Winkie runs through town
    Upstairs and downstairs in his nightgown
    Rapping at the windows, peering through the locks
    Are all the kids in bed? it’s after nine o’clock.

    Also, ring around the rosie is actually scary. I know you guys know this, but I assume the real meaning is horrible. Let me explain:
    Ring around the rosie: You would get a pinkish or rose colored spot on your body and if the plague wasn’t cured, you would get a black ring around it, hence ‘ring around the rosie.
    Pocket full of posies: Posies were a flower that either kept things from rotting or from being able to smell the decay. So they put posies with the people who died.
    Ashes to ashes: They would burn the dead bodies of the infected, so they wouldn’t infect anyone else.
    We all fall down: The plague killed almost or more than half of the civilization at the time…
    Hope this helped.

  • The childs prayer (“If I should die before I wake”) was from Metallicas Enter Sandman as well :D

  • Imma try a poem k
    My heart pounding
    Through my chest
    I cannot stop
    No time to rest
    My life is at
    The tip of a cliff
    The grip of a hand
    And only if
    I find a way
    For this beast
    To get away
    Safe and sound
    My life MIGHT stay

    Sorry im not good at writing poem its my first or second time

  • Here is one from the movie The awakenings

    Ladybug ladybug fly away home,
    Your house in on fire and your children are gone,
    All except one and that’s little Ann,
    For she crept under the frying pan
    Note: in the movie the lullaby ended in the line “all except for one”

  • I live in london, UK, and hundreds of years ago, there was a disease called The Black Death or The Great Plague. Many people died from this, but today, many children sing a little poem that goes like this:
    Ring’o Ring’o roses,
    A pocket full of poses,
    Atishoo! Atishoo!
    We all fall down!
    Lots of little children now know this song off by heart but it really means.
    Ring’o Ring’o roses (to stop yoursself from catching the plague, you should hold roses to your nose)
    A pocket full of poses ( spots on your face, also known as measles)
    Atisho!Atishoo! (sneezing very hard)
    We all fall down ! (dying of sneezing too hard, fall down)
    The great plague was first caught by king charles the 1st and it was caused by sewage rats. The pied piper was sent to send them away but unfortunately, he also caught the great plague and died. :(

  • Ring around the rosie refers to the cancerous bubes that were a result of bubonic plague. Pocket full of posies refers to the herbs that people carried around. Ashes, Ashes refers to sneezing that was a symptom of bubonic plague (ashes, ashes = achoo, achoo.) We all fall down means people drop dead.

  • The Child’s Prayer isn’t scary. Those are words from the actual prayer. They weren’t tampered with in any way to make them sound scary. That is the prayer. “If I should die before I wake, I pray the Lord my soul to take,” is one of the actual phrases.

  • @carcass this ones for you!!!!! :) (WARNING: SOO FREAKING GORY)

       Jason lied on the couch, eyes wide open. “OK, Jason. Now, do you remember what happened?” Dr.Stokkz asked.

        Jason’s heart stopped as he remembered the incident. He was leaving the local deli. He walked past an alley. Jason heard something snarling in the alley. Curiosity got the best of him and he looked back.

         He saw a man in a blood stained suit. He had ripped the heart out of a poor man’s chest. The physcotic man scarfed down the man’s heart. Jason stood in shock at what he was seeing.

         The inhumane thing looked up. His eyes locked with Jason’s. He stared at him, making a mental note of Jason’s appearance. He pointed at Jason, then greedily gobbled up the rest of the man’s internal organs. 

          Jason ran away as fast as he could. He ran into the police station, panting and crying. “Son, what’s wrong!?”, the deputy grabbed Jason’s shoulder. Jason told him all about the incident. The cops didn’t believe him.

          Jason walked out. He was so frustrated. Why wouldn’t anyone believe him? He headed home, muttering to himself. 

          He got home and went to sleep. Jason heard chewing. He assumed it was just his dog. “Marbles,” he whispered.

          Jason looked down, looking for his dog. “Marbles,” he whispered again. He got up to look for her.

          Jason turned on the light. He started walking out of his room. He walked down the hall. As he got farther down the hall, he saw drops of blood.

            Jason started nearing the kitchen. He heard growling and slurping. He hesitantly walked in. To his horror, he saw his dog’s dead body on the floor. 

         If that wasn’t enough, the man was there, too. He was slurping up  Marbles’ blood. He locked eyes with Jason again. He had a devilish grin. The man then got up and walked out of the house. 

       Jason locked all the doors and windows. He closed the chimney. He turned on all the lights in the house and all the TVs. Jason stayed up all night, terrified.

        When Jason left for work in the morning, he walked past the same alley. He heard muffled growls. He tried not to, but he felt compelled to look. Jason was even more disturbed than before. He looked at the man’s victim. He looked just like Jason. 

          The cannibalistic man looked up at Jason and whispered in a distorted voice,”You’re next,” Jason was forced to move out of the town.

           “But I guess I’m safe now,” Jason said with a smile. Dr. Stokkz smiled, showing a set of blood covered, pointed teeth, as he approached Jason. “No, not yet,”


  • my brother told me this when i was a child. he was trying to scare me but i thought it was very interesting. i still do


    That feeling like you’re all alone,
    They’re all gone, you grab your phone.
    Quickly scrolling through your list,
    Phone is bleeding down your wrist.

    You bring the phone to your ear,
    Low sad voice, you begin to hear.
    Voice whispers, don’t look back,
    You slowly glance, it’s all black.

    Dropped the phone, as you run,
    You fall over, a bloody gun.
    In your pocket, you hear a ring,
    You reach in, you feel a sting.

    Poison hits you, right away,
    It is clear, you’re the prey.
    You look back, they lay alone,
    Holding on, to their phone

  • I know you didn’t really ask for a made up rhyme but i made up a version of ‘Hush little baby don’t you cry’. Hope you like♥

    Hush little baby don’t say a word
    Mama’s gonna buy you a mocking bird.

    And if that mocking bird does die,
    Mama’s gonna get a you an apple pie.

    But if little baby does not eat,
    Then Mama’s gonna get some juicy meat.

    But if little baby does not bite,
    Then Mama’s gonna have some nasty spite.

    And if little baby gets upset,
    Mama’s gonna give a beastly threat.

    If little baby has a snore,
    Mama’s gonna kick you out the door.

    If little baby dares come back,
    Mama’s gonna give you a big, hard smack.

    So hush little baby don’t you cry,
    Or dear little baby is gonna die.

  • The last one xD
    I really like that poem from a game called “Agatha Christie: And Then There Were None”. It’s not scary, or creepy, but I still like it :)

  • From Dead Space(not a movie,but in that version its really creepy),Twinkle,twinkle little star(search for it in youtube)

  • tell me what u think of that one :) and this one too it’s pretty scary if u ask me :D

                 Black Eyes

          Sarah just turned 17. Her parents were out of town and she was home alone. She just  moved into a new house and it was kind of creeping her out. People said someone died there.  She thought it was just a rumor.

        There was storm warning for the past couple of days, and it was raining on and off, so she was not surprised when the telephone stopped working. But it was getting kind of dark, and her parents still weren’t home. She had been watching TV for a couple of hours now. 

         Someone was at the door. She hesitated to answer, but did anyways. She was relieved to see it was just an old woman. That was, until she looked into her eyes. They were pure black. 

      Sarah had been warned about older men and women with black eyes. They would try to get into your house. After that, no one knew.

        The shaking woman asked to come in for a glass of water. Sarah lied through her teeth, “My parents are discussing some serious issues and wouldn’t enjoy being interrupted,” with that she slammed the door. 
        The woman stood at the door, still. A storm was blowing in. She still stood there shaking. She looked so weak and frail. Sarah finally let her in.

        It was getting pretty late. Sarah was heading off to bed. It was still raining. She went to say good night to the woman. The woman smiled revealing a row of perfectly pointed teeth. She had Sarah cornered. Sarah tried to scream, but she couldn’t. She shouldn’t have let the woman in.

  • thank youuuu :) another story I wrote :D sorry if it sounds like this one story on creepy pasta me and my friend actually wrote that one together “The Message” great story :) here’s mine

              The Warning
        You need to help me. He’s right next to me. He’s waiting for me to fall asleep so he can kill me. I can’t move or else he’ll sink his knife-like nails into my throat. I called the cops, but they still aren’t here.

         Are they even coming? It’s been 2 hours. Maybe I should just let him kill me. Maybe that would be better than me sitting here, suffering. So, you’re probably wondering how this happened. Well, I was 14. We had just moved here and I had trouble making friends. It was as if I was invisible. So, I went to a witch to see if she could help. She showed me a spell, but she said it might not be what I expected. She said it was dangerous, but I was desperate. Now they’re going to get me and make me just like them. 

         Next time, I’ll be more careful. He’s tapping his nails on my neck. I can’t fall asleep. His glowing red eyes are the only things lighting the room. I can’t tell you any more, but you should probably read the first word of every paragraph now.

  • My daughters
    I charge my daughters every one
    To keep good house while I am gone,
    You and you and especially you,
    Or else I’ll beat you black and blue.
    Owo not many ppl know this but it refers to an urban legend .

  • the hanging tree is from the hunger games mockingjay. Thnx for putting that in! :)

  • Blood on the floor.

    Don’t you see the blood on the floor?
    I know it’s coming from that door.
    I don’t think you should go inside,
    because thats where your parents died.
    They somehow got all cut up.
    Don’t look at them or you might throw up.
    Theres blood,guts,bones oh my!
    The killers behind you.Start running before you die.

  • Wait I thought ring around the Rosie had something to do with a witch. And if you sang it a person would die.

  • hey u know what was really weird, 3 years ago in 3 grade in my art class for some reason we were talking about paint brush strokes to the horror of ring around the rosie song, i forgot wat my art teacher said about it but it was creepy, mabe it was creepy because at the time i seriously didnt know if my art teacher was a woman or man, she/he had long whiteish yellow straight hair but her voice was exactly like a mans, so i was confuzzled at the time lol

  • I agree with I-LUV-UNICORNZ. The hanging tree is my favorite melody from the Hunger Games Book. As well as Rue’s Lullaby! *puts three fingers to lips and extends* may the odds be ever in your favaaaah~

  • I love the first one! Nightmare on Elm Street is my favorite. I even read fanfictions bout’ it..

  • @Gidgey
    Actually the “ashes, ashes” part was about the cremation of the bodies and the burnings of the victims homes.
    SFK says to only post your story once in the tell me your story section and not to spam it on other pages
    That’s what the bubonic plague was. It was dubbed the black death or the black plague.

  • A,B,C,D,E,F,G,
    Gummy bears are oh so sweet
    One it red, one is blue
    One is trying to steal my shoe
    Now I’m running for my life

  • @Water-Spirit. No ” ring around the Rosie’s” is a some about the bionic pleague. For example, when you sing ashes, ashes it’s talking about how you saw the ashes of the burned bodies because they had to cremate bodies if the victims of the pleague. We all fall down , is saying that when you have the pleague, you could be walking one minute and e dead the next. I learned this at school in music class. We where talking about nursery rhymes and I brought this up. She explained the whole Song to the class.

  • Also this one (I didn’t make these up it was some stories my mom and dad would tell me)


    Eyeballs and ears
    For a little lost girl
    Her hair is a mess
    Beauty is her crest
    As she slowly holds your hand
    You are aware
    She is not there

    (she is a ghost ha)


    Snow on the ground
    Everyone frowns
    Two people cry
    The whole town knows why
    Strung up on the tree
    Is you and me
    Side by side
    Forced to die
    Looks of pain our painted on us
    Our stomachs sliced
    The winter white snow is red
    We are dead


    Kimmi Kimmi don’t cry
    We will be gone from here Tonight
    I wanted to take you
    I couldn’t right then
    Crows fly and peck at your eyes
    Kimmi I loved you
    I couldn’t take you away at the time

    The Zoo:

    Mommy took me to the zoo
    She showed me what we could do
    The lions feast, the people scream
    Daddy is stuck forever in a dream
    He was in the bag cut up and red
    I helped mommy throw the head
    Over the ledge to the lions den

  • My grandmother told me this one a long time ago ha…it kinda creepy

    Little Suzy

    Little Suzy alone in the house
    Creeping and crawling
    She hides to relax
    The creak of the door
    Tells her you are there
    She watches from the crack
    Under the stairs
    When you head off to bed
    She comes near
    She doesn’t reach out
    Only whispers into your ear
    “Run run away, don’t end up like me”
    Then she leaves
    Poor little Suzy

  • @creepy789
    I love that movie! I wasn’t really scared by it, but I thought it had a really good plot.

  • @water-Spirit

    I dont know which plague u are refering to but the one in europe from 1348 to 1351 was the one I was talking about. I did a report about it.

  • For the Lizzie Borden shouldn’t it be gave her father forty whacks becuz I warched a paranormal show or something talking about her xO

  • hii guys!!!! I write a story and some of u mite have read it on tell me your story but ok here it goes hope u guys aaaaand SFK like it!! :)

    Unknown Calls

    It was John’s third day working as a 911 operator. It was a nice day to begin with. He had very few calls so far. 

        Soon after, he started recieving unknown phone calls. “911,what’s your emergency?” he answered. All he heard was the roar of a fire. He heard a man laughing manically in the background. He put the phone down, dismissing it as a petty prank call.   He received a few more calls like this before it was time to leave.

         John started heading home. He was at a stoplight. His vision blurred up and he smelt smoke. He felt the heat of the fire. John heard a ringing sound. He opened his eyes and grabbed his phone. His wife was calling.

       He exhaled and turned his focus back to the road. 

        When he got home, he got a call from an unknown number. “Hello?” he answered the phone. Again he heard the roar of a fire and physcotic laughing. But this time, there was screaming. The man kept laughing.

         That night, John was awoken by a tapping on his window. He got up and walked over to it. He looked out to see a man laughing. He held a box of matches and a lit match. Just as John went to call the cops, the man disappeared.

         John stayed up for the rest of the night. The laughter echoed in his head. He was constantly looking out the window. He waited for his phone to ring.

          John returned to work the next day. He was sweating and trembling. His eyes were bloodshot and his palms were sweaty. John waited for the phone to ring. 

          The phone rang. John stared at it. The Caller ID read “Unknown”. Tears were streaming down his face. He answered the phone with trembling hands. “H-hello?” The man started laughing and laughing. 

        John dropped the phone and held his head. He was shaking violently. John was dead silent. He was ghostly pale. He slowly got up and left work. 

          John entered his house. He sat on the couch, holding his phone. Ring ring ring. John picked up the phone, took out the battery, and threw it away.
        That night, John woke up at 12:01 AM. He got up to get a glass of water. He walked into the kitchen and heard a ringing. John saw light coming from the trash can. He slowly approached it and picked up the phone.

         He stood silently. He heard the laughing again. It sounded so close. John threw down the phone and searched frantically for the source of the sound, but he couldn’t find it.

         He looked out the window. There stood the man. His skin was singed a dark grey. A malicious smile spread across his bright red lips as he lit the match. He threw that one at the house, and he lit another.

       John felt heat building up in the room. He felt the smoke choking him as he fought to get out of the room. John felt his skin burning.
        John started screaming. The laughing was driving him insane. He had to find a way to escape.

        He tried to open the door, but it was jammed. He ran to another window. The man was still standing there. He had the same sickening smile. John looked at his phone.  Ring. Ring. Ring. 

  • @Gidgey

    “Ring around the rosie” actually means the children were seeing all these dead bodies being piled up and put on fire, and all the children formed a ring and danced around the fire.
    “A pocket full of posie” actually DOES mean herbs, tucked in their pocket during the horrible-smelling bonfires. It would help with the scent.
    “Ashes Ashes” Again, referring to the fire.
    “We all fall down” means, “We’re all gonna die soon”

    But your analysis was actually a good one.

  • Sand man come to me tonight, Comfort me till morning light,
    As darkness falls and shadows gloom, I bid you welcome to my room,
    Rest your bones upon my bed, Lay your hand upon my head,
    Cast your spell a slumber deep, And stay beside me as i sleep,
    If i should die before i wake, I grant to you my soul to take…

  • Buckle My Shoe
    One, two, buckle my shoe
    Three, four, lock the door
    Five, six, pick up gun sticks
    Seven, eight, close the gate
    Nine, ten, let the quiet murdering begin
    ScaryForKids please post this! You guys will probably never believe me, but one of my friends got possessed by this ghost of a girl from the 1700’s and this is the song of her death.

  • @gidgey i thought the pocket full of posies was because the people smelled so bad that they carried around flowers so the smell wounlnt be so horrible. but if its herbs then okay

  • The Death Clock: Tick Tock The clock strikes 3 The doll walks up 3 steps to your door
    Tick Tock The clock strikes 6 The doll walks up 6 steps to your door
    Tick Tock The clock strikes 12 The doll walks to your door
    Waiting till your asleep… Opens the door and sings.. Tick Tock Tick tock Tick Tock Tick Tock..

  • This is called:
    The Girl In Ivory

    Beware of that girl in ivory
    Inoccent souls be taken away
    Terror strikes when she looks in your soul
    Children’s deaths are near when she knows your alive
    Horror movies can come true with that girl in Ivory

    Please put this on ScaryForKids!!!
    I will be most Grateful :D

  • The Demon
    He watches you, he stalks you
    He is that good looking man on youtube
    He smells of rotting flesh
    And has blood all over his face
    But still he is hungry for your flesh
    He tears people apart while they are alive
    And right now as you read this, He is planning to switch off your lights
    Your Crosses and Bibles will not save you
    If he chooses you, you are gone for good
    Don’t show fear, pretend you never read this
    Because once He knows you know He exists
    Then believe me, its the end of you….
    (Another one I made, but I doubt people will like this one

  • The Man In Black
    I know of a man, not far from here
    He dresses in black, and no one goes near,
    They say he comes in your dreams,
    And boil you in steam,
    But you can’t scream,
    Or a light beam will split you in three.
    Don’t fear him, that’s what they say,
    But believe me, you won’t survive till May,
    Perhaps right now he is under your bed,
    Just waiting to grind your bones to bread,
    Or drain your soul for his health,
    Or just use your teeth to make his belt.
    This is a warning my dear friends,
    The man is not here to laugh and play,
    You never know, he may turn your skin to clay,
    So keep on track,
    And stay away for the man in black

    (I made this up, hope you like it SFK)

  • this is the song that never ends
    it makes me want to chop off my head
    some people, started singin not knowin what it was
    and they’ll keep on singin it forever just because
    they want me to chop off my head
    (yes we do!)

  • “Ring around the rosie” should be on here because it refers to the plague! Ring around the rosie”= red spots “Pocket full of posies”= A pocket of herbs carried to ward off disease “Ashes, ashes”= sneezing, ashes, funeral “We all fall down!”= death. AShes Ashes could mean the sneezing sounds victims made ashes at a funeral or a saying at the funeral; Ashes to ashes dust to dust.
