So Lonely and Scared
the Stray Away Child,
is Lost in the Dark Wood
where Lives Things so Wild.

Leaving It's Parents
so Loving and Mild,
to Wonder what happened
to Their Stray Away Child.

Down in those Dark Woods
where No Body goes,
what happens there
No Body knows.

The Stray Away Child
wants to go home,
but It's lost in the Wild Wood
where the Night Winds Moan.

It Whimpers and Cries
with no one to Hear,
except a Wild Wolf
or maybe a Bear.

Down in those Dark Woods
where No Body goes,
what happens there
No Body Knows.
