The TAR BABIES are creatures of tar living in the La Brea tar pits; sneaking out to lure humans to an oily death.

Tar Babies crawling
Out of La Brea's pits, luring
Human's to their doom

Beguiling people
To follow them to their death,
Tar Babies cooing.

Slick with oily tar
Tar Babies coax victims,
To follow to their death.

The Tar Babies Come
From their black pits stealing
Away the living lost.

Cute black babies lure
Young women to their death,
Within La Brea's dark pits.

Having found victims
Tar Babies need to entice,
Them to their demise.

Slinking into town
Tar Babies watch at windows,
Seeking folk to kill.
