Comments[edit]

  • [Plaster] tells me that the original title of the diary of Anne Frank was "The Annexe", named after the house in which she lived, "The Secret Annexe"[1]. He also mentions that The Annex is a neighbourhood in Toronto, Canada.[2]

Samples/Lyrics[edit]

  • In this Twoism thread[3] the sample source of the singing children was discovered. The singing is a slight variation of the Jenny Jones poem. The actual song they sampled is A40 "I've Come To See Your Janie Jonies" on this 1983's Children's Singing Games compilation.[4] You can hear it at 1:59 in this Spotify player.

Jenny Jones (poem)[edit]

Please, we've come to see Jenny Jones, Jenny Jones, Jenny Jones;

Please, we've come to see Jenny Jones,

And how is she today?


Jenny, she is dead, dead, dead;

You cannot see her today.


What color is she going to be buried in?


Red.


Red is for danger, danger, danger;

Red is for danger, so that won't do.


White.


White is for angels, angels, angels;

White is for angels, so that will do.


Ding, dong,

The castle bells,

Ringing for me;

I'll be buried in the old churchyard

Beneath the great yew tree.

Trivia[edit]

  • In Carnival Slang, An Annex refers to "The area of a sideshow joint where the blowoff is located."[5]
