Lucy, it's time for bed now, and you need your rest
So lie down in your coffin dear and sleep tight
I'll wake you when Daddy's here, alright?

No, no, d-d-don't cry, d-d-don't cry girl
Little girl from head to toe
Deep into the ground you go, down, down

Sleep tight little baby
Sleep tight below the ground
Sleep tight little baby
Nowhere to run around

Oh, the worms, oh, the worms
Is that your Daddy? Your Daddy

Sleep tight little baby
Sleep tight below the ground
Sleep tight little baby
Nowhere to run around

Oh, the worms, oh, the worms
Is that your Daddy? Your Daddy, Daddy

And as I'm waiting by the cemetery gates
For her father to show
Something's pounding at my head
It's, it's like I, I, I can still hear her screaming

Oh Lucy, I'm doing all this for you
Oh Lucy, I didn't mean to, I didn't want to
But you've got to

Sleep tight little baby
Sleep tight below the ground
Sleep tight little baby
Nowhere to run around

Oh, the worms, oh, the worms
Is that your Daddy? Your Daddy

So you came at last
Well, let me see your heart
Let me see your face
You, son of a bitch

I see a baby crying, I see a little tear
Oh yeah, I know you're trying
But you can't stop the fear, Daddy

If you ever wanna see your little girl again
You better do as I say
Dear, Mr. Mayor, welcome to my humble tomb
Come inside, you know you have to
