Lockjaw/ Lockjaw Art Challenge

Look out children
Mothers hide all the children who lie
Lockjaw’s coming with a rusty nail
He’s gonna nail your mouth open wide
Look out children
Boys and girls who do falsify
From the black forest with a hammerhead
He’s looking for you with a rusty eye

In the black forest lives an ogre named Lockjaw.
Lockjaw doesn’t like children who tell lies.
Late at night he stalks the houses of the fibbers and the
Falsifiers, and before they can cry out from their beds, he nails their jaws
Open with a rusty nail, using his head for a hammer.

You might escape him for a
While and think you fooled him, but he’ll get you in the end. he’ll get ya!
He’ll get ya!!

Lockjaw’s coming! Lockjaw's coming!

Lockjaw's coming! Lockjaw's coming!
Mothers hide all your lying children

(Hide your heads, all you lying children)
Lockjaw's coming! Lockjaw's coming!
Lockjaw's coming! Lockjaw's coming!
Fathers hide all your lying children

(Hide your heads, all you lying children)

Look out mothers
Telling lies to a gullible child
Lockjaw’s coming with a rusty nail
He’s gonna nail your mouth open wide
Look out fathers
Teachers and leaders who do falsify
From the black forest with a hammerhead
He’s looking for you with a rusty eye


Lockjaw’s coming! Lockjaw's coming!
Lockjaw's coming! Lockjaw's coming!
Hide your head if you lie to children
(Hide your heads, all you lying children)
Lockjaw's coming! Lockjaw's coming!
Lockjaw's coming! Lockjaw's coming!
You can't hide if you lie to children

(Hide your heads, all you lying children)

Many people wonder, "Could such a horrible thing be true? Who would make up such
A terrible tale? "

It seems such a cruel punishment for such a tiny little lie.
Well, I’ve got to confess. It’s a fib. I made it up myself. It’s pretty funny,
Don’t you think? Ha ha ha! *scream*

Lockjaw's coming!

Music and Lyrics by Todd Rundgren, from the album, A Capella.

Hey, how's this for an idea: How about all the dark artists, regardless of medium, who follow this blog create a work imagining what Lockjaw would look like based on the lyrics of this song?

If enough people are interested, I'll feature all the work in a post down the line, due date to be announced. Maybe we'll make it a contest or something like that.


Please pass this along to your dark artist friends if you would! (I've now fixed the error that prevented you from seeing the artist challenge...)
