The Cure Lullaby Lyrics

I spy something beginning with S…

On candystripe legs,
The spiderman comes
Softly through the shadow
Of the evening sun
Stealing past the windows
Of the blissfully dead
Looking for the victim shivering in bed

Searching out fear
In the gathering gloom
And suddenly a movement
In the corner of the room
And there is nothing I can do
When I realize with fright
The spiderman is having me
For dinner tonight

Quietly he laughs
And shaking his head
Creeps closer now
Closer to the foot of the bed
And softer than shadow
And quicker than flies
His arms are all around me
And there’s tears in my eyes

Be still,
Be calm and quiet now,
My precious boy
Don’t struggle like that or
I will only love you more
For it’s much too late to get away
Or turn on the light
The spiderman is having you
For dinner tonight

And I feel like I’m being eaten
By a thousand million shivering furry holes
And I know that in the morning
I will wake up in the shivering cold
The spiderman is always hungry

“Come into my parlour”,
Said the spider to the Fly
“I have a little something here”
