peeking through the embers
stirring up a storm
kashkash is watching you
and keeping you from harm

Ember Ash and Kindling
pretty kings and queens
counting out your wishes
lighting up your dreams

listen to your mother
when she takes you to town
for kashkash gobbles all
the naughty children down

Hearth, Tinder, Flint & Steel
pretty kings and queens
granting all your wishes
dancing in your dreams

never make a wish that will
make your mother frown
for kashkash gobbles all
the naughty children down
