The town was covered in Rats In every crack and every hole


They fought the dogs and killed the Cats Destroying every townmans soul


At last the corporation sat For the town had finallyCracked


If they did not rid of the rat The mayor would beSac ked


A stranger came and knocked on the door And appeared to be a little Hyp er


Their mouths dropped and hit the floor They were in company of the Pied Piper


The Pied piper set his Price and the council agreed with glee


He'd rid them of the rats and leave the Mice And it appeared they would pay the fee


Onto the street the piper fell and took out his pipe and began to Play


Every rat was under his spell not a single one survived theDay


The piper went to collect his guilders and the council laughed in his Face


Not safe now were their childers They had over stepped their Place


Once more he stepped to the street And started to play his Song


All the children followed his feet And paid for the councils Wrong


They looked for their kids high and low and soon ran out of Time


Named the street after their foe To remind them of their Crime
