From New Line Records:

For the First Time, the Classic Nightmare on Elm Street Theme ‘Jump Rope’ (better known as ‘Freddy’s Coming’) Is Available As a Ringtone

To horror movie fans, it’s a familiar song.

“One, Two, Freddy’s coming for you
Three, Four, better lock your door
Five, Six grab your Crucifix
Seven, Eight, better stay up late
Nine, Ten, never sleep again”

‘Jump Rope’ (better known as ‘Freddy’s Coming’) features the eerie juxtaposition of children’s voices singing innocently in unison while offering a warning about Freddy Kruger; and it has exhilarated fans for many years. Now, for the first time, and just in time for Halloween, this classic theme has been made available as a ringtone for fans to purchase by texting the word “Nightmare” to 71777.

The song is based on the nursery rhyme “One, Two, Buckle My Shoe” which was first published in London in 1805 and is still used today to teach children to count…..and to warn them that Freddy’s Coming!

The original song was written by Charles Bernstein for the first Nightmare On Elm Street film, but has been used throughout the Nightmare On Elm Street film series.

The ringtone will be available through all major carriers. Standard messaging rates apply
