It Rained a Mist

It rained a mist
It rained a mist
It rained all over the town
When two little boys went out to play
And toss their ball around, around
And toss their ball around

Well first they tossed it up too high
And then they tossed it too low
And then they tossed it in the lady's yard
Where no one was allowed to go, to go
Where no one was allowed to go

There came a fair miss to the door
Dressed in linen so fine
Come in, come in my little one
You may have your ball again, again
You may have your ball again

I won't come in, I won't come in
Unless my playmate comes, too
I've often heard of little boys going in
And never coming out again, again
And never coming out again

Well, first she showed him a rotten apple
And then she showed him a chain
And then she showed him a diamond ring
To entice this little one in, one in
To entice this little one in

She took him by his lily-white hand
And led him across the hall
She led him to a dark lonesome room
Where no one could hear his call, his call
Where no one could hear his call

She placed a napkin on his face
And pinned it with a pin
And then she's taken her carving knife
And carved his little heart in, heart in
And carved his little heart in

Tell Mamma and Daddy I cannot come home
I was their only boy
For some evil lady has taken my life
Their pleasures to destroy, destroy
Their pleasures to destroy
Alternate title: FATAL FLOWER GARDEN
