I know, that was bad.

Another one that can blow out the window is "Little Sir Hugh." There is no such thing as a yenta serial killer who stabs beautiful children with a pen knives and throws them down a well for no particular reason. It's obviously a song created to teach fear and hatred of Jews to little children. It's truly a vile thing.
