The Chokey Chant Lyrics

NIGEL
Oh, Matilda! They say she's going to put me in Chokey!

MATILDA
What . . . What's Chokey?

NIGEL
They say it's a cupboard in her office that she throws children into. They say she's lined it with nails, and spikes, and bits of broken glass.

BIG KIDS
There's a place you are sent if you haven't been good,

BIG KID [BEN]
And it's made of spikes and wood.

BIG KIDS
And it isn't wide enough to sit.

BIG KID [TAYLOR]
And even if you could,

BIG KIDS
There are nails on the bottom,

BIG KID [TAYLOR]
So you wish you'd ?

BIG KIDS
Stood!
When the hinges creak and the door is closed,
You cannot see squat ?

BIG KID [TAMIKA]
Not the end of your nose.

BIG KIDS
And when you scream, you don't know if the sound came out,
Or if the scream in your head even reached your mouth!
Auuurrrgh!
