Lyrics

by Regina A. Blackburn

The family has a Shshsh , that we don’t speak about
A u/g/l/y secret; Took place at Grandma’s house

The family has a Shshsh, though it didn’t start with me
Seems like it’s been forever, inside this family

Shshsh, don’t speak; Shshsh, don’t tell;
Escape into your little shell
Shshsh, don’t see; Shshsh, don’t hear;
In a state of constant fear;

The family has a Shshsh; Nobody brave enough
To stop that animal, preying on the not-so-tough

The family has a Shshsh; Everybody knows details
Of what took place within those walls; A true-life living hell

Shshsh, don’t speak; Shshsh, don’t tell;
Escape into your little shell
Shshsh, don’t see; Shshsh, don’t hear;
In a state of constant fear;

Won’t somebody rescue me; Won’t somebody set me free
Won’t somebody ; Some/bo/dy ; Save what’s left of me
Won’t somebody crack this case; See the clues upon my face
Won’t somebody; Some/bo/dy ; Hurry!!! Help me!!!

The family HAD a Shshsh; Now everyone’s released
The reign of terror over; ‘Cause we massacred the beast
Now we have a new shshsh; A new shshsh; Shshsh!!!
