Video: Come Little Children by Book Of Shadows

Book Of Shadows: “Come Little Children” (words by Bette Midler written for the movie Hocus Pocus) Sung by someone else and not from the movie. Its a fuller version than the movie and is set to wiccan/pagan images.
Earlier this year I was trying to find who wrote the poem (lyrics), I asked the local librarian and they looked it up to see that Bette Midler wrote the song or poem.

  1. As far as I know, the song was not written by Bette Midler. It is based on a much older poem which some people think was written by Edgar Allan Poe (but probably wasn’t). Anyway, it existed before the movie and is much longer in original.

  2. I’ve been trying to dig up this info myself since reading this post. Some things I’m finding attribute the poem to John Debney, but Debney was the film’s composer. I am also finding Brock Walsh’s name attached to these lyrics. Nowhere am I finding that it was a full length poem originally though. But I may just be looking in the wrong places.
