Haunting Omen: Ghostly girls jumping rope to Freddy song

One, Two, Freddy's Coming For You is an adaptation of the children's nursery rhyme, "One, Two, Buckle My Shoe". This song is often said to be Freddy Krueger's theme song.

Original Film Series

With the exception of it being sung by Angela Walsh in Freddy's Revenge, it is sung by little children dressed in white party clothes jump-roping who are presumed to be the past victims of Freddy in his former life. Despite being a parody, it is quite haunting and ominous and has a lasting impact on Freddy's victims. In ANoES3 Nancy comments that this rhyme is used to "keep the boogy-man away". 

Lyrics:

One, two, Freddy's coming for you.

Three, four, Better lock your door

Five, six, grab a crucifix.

Seven, eight, Gonna stay up late.

Nine, ten, Never sleep again....

In ANoES5 the lyrics changed, giving proof to the fact that the lyrics are somewhat flexible and change as the need arises.

Lyrics:

One, two, Freddy's coming for you.

Three, four, Better lock your door

Five, six, grab a crucifix.

Seven, eight, Ya better stay awake.

Nine, ten, He's back again.
