The Smiling Man

Work Text:


Here comes The Smiling Man

With bowler hat and cane in hand

Comes from a land unknown to man

ʜᴇ ᴄᴏᴍᴇꜱ ᴛᴏ ᴛᴀᴋᴇ ᴍᴇ ᴀᴡᴀʏ

 

With his creepy little smile 

Happiness stretching out a mile

Taking away my thoughts most vile

ᴘʟᴇᴀꜱᴇ ᴛᴀᴋᴇ ᴍʏ ᴘᴀɪɴ ᴀᴡᴀʏ

 

In the corner of my room

He appears amidst the doom and gloom

Sweeps the sadness away with a dark broom

ᴍᴀᴋᴇ ᴀʟʟ ᴛʜᴇꜱᴇ ᴛʜᴏᴜɢʜᴛꜱ ɢᴏ ᴀᴡᴀʏ

 

He sits next to me on the bed

A black substance his eyes bled

And in a hushed voice he said

ɪ ᴡɪʟʟ ᴍᴀᴋᴇ ᴛʜ ᴘᴀɪɴ ɢᴏ ᴀᴡᴀʏ

 

He promised to hurt those who caused me pain

Those who did their worst would be slain

Not for bloodlust or his own gain

ʙᴇᴄᴀᴜꜱᴇ ɪ ᴡᴀɴᴛ ʏᴏᴜʀ ᴘᴀɪɴ ᴛᴏ ɢᴏ ᴀᴡᴀʏ

 

He silently crawls around at night

Giving his enemies a deathly fright

Every time he whispers a light

ʏᴏᴜ'ʀᴇ ɴᴏᴛ ᴍᴀᴋɪɴɢ ʜɪꜱ ᴘᴀɪɴ ɢᴏ ᴀᴡᴀʏ

 

So every night I lie awake

Making watch with no mistake

Thanking the Smiling man for my sake

ᴛʜᴀɴᴋ ʏᴏᴜ ꜰᴏʀ ᴛᴀᴋɪɴɢ ᴛʜᴇ ᴘᴀɪɴ ᴀᴡᴀʏ
