The Stupendous and Amazing Laughing Jack Song!

Warning: This work has been rated 16+ for violence and mature content.

*Happy spooky season everybody! Before we get started, I would like to go over a few things. Who is Laughing Jack? Laughing Jack is from the Creepypasta fandom. Creepypasta is a genre of internet horror. It can range from copy and paste stories, to a photo, to a video, and more! Laughing Jack was created by internet user “Snuffbomb”. He’s a creepy clown who pretends to be the imaginary friend of children, only to murder them in the end. Their souls are forced to haunt his carnival. (You can Google him if you would like to know more. This song will make more sense as it references his origin story and many other stories). Laughing Jack has his own theme song, but it’s just a scary version of “Pop goes the weasel”. There’s other versions of it with lyrics, but…there are other Creepypastas who have, in my opinion, cooler theme songs! I thought that Laughing Jack deserved a song other than a scary “Pop goes the weasel”, so I wrote this! Enjoy! But do keep the lights on when reading…


INTRO:

“Hey, kids! Do you want some candy? I have so many...”

*MUSIC*

SONG:

Careful, little ones

When a monochrome man

Offers you candy

You never know if he’s

Actually evil

He seems nice

He seems kind

But don’t trust him


Careful, little ones

When you’re outside

He might just appear

To be your friend for life

A friendship like this never ends

Not when you’ve got good ol’ Laughing Jack as your friend


He’s giving you the sweetest treats

Showing you the coolest tricks

He can make your dreams

Become a reality


Your parents will never understand, you think to yourself

They’ll never know about the wonder he brings, you think to yourself

Don’t worry, he won’t leave your side

Never ever in a million years, would he ever

Say goodbye


Careful, little ones

When a monochrome man

Offers you candy

You never know if he’s

Actually evil

He seems nice

He seems kind

But don’t trust him


Careful, little ones

When you’re outside

He might just appear

To be your friend for life

A friendship like this never ends

Not when you’ve got good ol’ Laughing Jack as your friend


Now it’s getting serious

He wants to ruin your life

He wants to cut you open,into little itty bitty pieces

Nothing can satisfy him, not until you die,

Die and stay a kid FOREVER!


But do not worry

He’s not real (Are you sure about that?)

He’s only a figment of your imagination (Really?)

A broken dream of yours

He can’t hurt you (I think)


Careful, little ones

When a monochrome man

Offers you candy

You never know if he’s

Actually evil

He seems nice

He seems kind

But don’t trust him


Careful, little ones

When you’re outside

He might just appear

To be your friend for life

A friendship like this never ends

Not when you’ve got good ol’ Laughing Jack as your friend


He wasn’t always this crazy

He wasn’t always this mean

He wasn’t always the nightmare intruding children’s dreams


He had a friend once

But that friend betrayed him

Now he wants more friends

To join him in his wonderfully twisted circus


Careful, little ones

When a monochrome man

Offers you candy

You never know if he’s

Actually evil

He seems nice

He seems kind

But don’t trust him


Careful, little ones

When you’re outside

He might just appear

To be your friend for life

A friendship like this never ends

Not when you’ve got good ol’ Laughing Jack as your friend


There, there, little ones

Do not cry

Do not shriek

No one can hear you scream, anyway


I know this looks bad

I know this looks horrid

But it’s what must be done


Your death is your destiny

The game has only just begun!

There were millions of children before you

Nameless children before you

Who have suffered the same fate

Of dying in Laughing Jack’s hands


You should have left that Jack-in-the-box alone

You should have never become friends with him

It’s too late now

You’re dead now


Careful, little ones

When a monochrome man

Offers you candy

You never know if he’s

Actually evil

He seems nice

He seems kind

But don’t trust him


Careful, little ones

When you’re outside

He might just appear

To be your friend for life

A friendship like this never ends

Not when you’ve got good ol’ Laughing Jack as your friend….

…Careful, little ones.

*Music fades. Faint children screaming and insane laughter could be heard in the background, followed by the sound of someone being cut open.*

Hello! Happy Review Month, I hope you’re having a great day or night : )
I admire the inspiration behind this song. Aside from what I’ve read from you, I’ve never been much interested in Creepypastas, but this in particular made me curious to check some of them out! (In that regard, do you have any recommendations in mind you think I should take a loot at?)
My favorite set of lines here were-

Nothing can satisfy him, not until you die,

Die and stay a kid FOREVER!

I particularly liked the latter, because it really expands on Jacks motivations here compared to the rest of the song. Once more, I’m generally quite uninformed on the lore, but I read this to mean “Laughing Jack” is really a manifestation of the fear of growing up. He collects the souls of children who feel ostracized by their parents or peers, and keeps them that way for forever. It’s really quite neat!
I did find the song to be a tad “On the nose” so-to-speak. Lines like
You never know if he’s

Actually evil

He seems nice

He seems kind

But don’t trust him


And

It’s too late now

You’re dead now


Don’t invoke much fear. They kinda remind me of those “stranger danger” videos we were shown in school, just amped up to eleven. I would’ve liked to see creepier imagery to set your readers on edge (I know very well you are great at this stuff, because you’re work has definitely creeped me in the past. I’m typing this out on my phone right now, so I don’t think I can find it, but the story in which the monster removes the girls teeth comes to mind. If you could translate that into your lyrics, you’d be set)
Overall though, this was a very well written piece! I was very impressed by this piece. I wish I could hear it being played properly, as songs don’t always translate as well written down, but as it stands, it was enjoyable, fast paced, and fun!
I look forward to seeing what you write next. Keep on writing, and Happy Spooky Season! :D






Thankksss%u2026 (The story you are thinking of is called %u201CPoor Amy%u201D. It%u2019s on my profile).

I think that you should Google his origin story and this one story with a kid named James and his Mom. There are also YouTube videos and many other fanfiction about him.

I feel as if there must be more stuff on him, so that is why I have works related to him.




I think Amelia Earhart wants you to get some ice cream.
