HOOK:

to cook a cake quite large
and fill each layer in between
with icing mixed with poison
til it turns a tempting green

(icing mixed with poison
til it turns a tempting green)

we'll place it near the house
just where the boys are sure to come
and being greedy they won't care to
question such a plum

(the boys who have no mother sweet)
no one to show them their mistake
(won't know it's dangerous to eat)
so damp and rich a cake-

and so before the winking of an eye
those boys will eat that poison cake
and one by one they'll die-

(they'll die they'll die they'll die they'll die they'll die-!
ole!
