Creepy shit I learned in school
I'm just wondering if anyone else was taught really creepy stuff in school, particularly in elementary school. I'm thinking it will probably be those of us who attended primary school in the mid 70's or before, just because people started paying more attention to what was going on in schools about then, but anything from anywhen is fine. Here's an example of what I'm talking about.

This is called "The Hearse Song".
We were taught this in Kindergarten. We used to sing it, out loud, as a class.
Why? No idea. I think it explains why I love horror movies and am a lifelong Stephen King fan.


"Don't you ever laugh as the hearse goes by,
For you may be the next one to die.
They wrap you up in big white sheets
and cover you from head to feet.
They put you in a big black box
And cover you with dirt and rocks.
All goes well for about a week,
Until your coffin begins to leak.
The worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
The worms play pinochle on your snout,
They eat your eyes, they eat your nose,
They eat the jelly between your toes.
A big green worm with rolling eyes
Crawls in your stomach and out your sides.
Your stomach turns a slimy green,
And pus pours out like whipping cream.
You'll spread it on a slice of bread,
And that's what you eat when you are dead."




I think the rhythm is borrowed from another song, but I don't know what...it's slow and funeral dirge like, if that helps any.. There are many alternate verses, here are the ones I know:



the worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
The worms play pinochle on your snout.
A big black bug with two red eyes,
crawls up through your stomach and out through your eyes.
Your liver turns to a slimy green,
And looks and tastes like whipped cream.





And the worms crawl in, the worms crawl out,
They crawl all over your dirty snout.
Your chest caves in, your eyes pop out,
And your brain turns to sauerkraut.




They invite their friends and their friends too,
They all come down to chew on you.




And this is what it is to die,
I hope you had a nice goodbye.
Did you ever think as a hearse goes by,
That you may be the next to die?
And your eyes fall out, and your teeth decay,
And that is the end of a perfect day.

Your school sounds cool. And morbid. Which makes it even cooler.

RE: Creepy shit I learned in school
I started attending Catholic schools in the 6th grade after we moved to my father's home town. After public school this was quite an experience.

In 6th grade our music teacher was a little birdlike woman who went by Sr. Johann. Did we learn fun little songs or even classic songs...why no...we learned funeral dirges. When someone in town died and requested the children's choir we were marched across the school yard to the Basilica where we got to sing things like...

...Come to his aid oh saints of god, hasten to meet him angels of the lord...

...and more that I have managed to block from memory.

There was more of the same in 7th grade...fun times.

It was much better in high school when we got to listen to the soundtrack for Jesus Christ Superstar in music class.

See here they are the bruises some were self-inflicted and some showed up along the way. - JF

While I think that that "the worms crawl in, the worms crawl out" song is kind of kid-funny-gross, I never heard that in class.

You know, I dug it, but I've always really liked the dark stuff, macabre, heavy metal rock n roll, etc.

I just wonder how many sweet little kids that I grew up with became serial killers because of some of the weird shit our teachers did back then...or at least have creepy basement rooms that strange smells emanate from...Shocking

Didn't learn that in school, but I've seen it before. Pretty sure it was in a book bought from the scholastic book sales though. One full of ghost stories.

But now I have come to believe that the whole world is an enigma, a harmless enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as though it had an underlying truth.

RE: Creepy shit I learned in school
In our school, they passed out a little safety pamphlet every year with graphic drawings of what happens if you try to cross the railroad tracks when a train is coming, or hid in a pile of leaves out in the street (and a car drives through it), etc. -- all good advice, but with much more emphasis on gore than you would see now. We thought it was cool. I think they also showed gory graphic videos in driver ed (maybe they still do that).

Also stuff about hell (this was a Catholic school).
