Jeff The Musical Poster by mrbillyjoebob Jeff The Musical Poster by mrbillyjoebob
Go to sleep,
Just go to sleep,
Not another word or peep…

Go to bed,
Just go to bed…
Let eternal bliss flow through your head-
Oh please, just go to bed...

Go to sleep,
Until break of day…
When you‘re asleep your life is endless play…

Go to sleep,
Just go to sleep…
And stay that way...


(FULL SONG LIST AND LYRICS: [link])


I know exactly what you're thinking: "What the abomination...?"

In case some of you don't know, my strange hobby is writing musicals. The creepypasta "Jeff The Killer" is no exception to this peculiar hobby. I've actually written a few songs and a plot for it.

The problem with selling the idea for this as a musical is that it has no musical qualities whatsoever. I could sell "Justine" as a musical because it has a few musical qualities to it (romance, intense feelings, blah blah) "Jeff The Killer" has zero qualities for a good musical. So why did I write part of it AND draw a poster? I'm a fool, that's why.

So here's the little synopsis I did for the (short) version:

A boy named Jeff moves into a neighborhood with his family, where everyone struggles to fit in (“All These Things”). Just then, Jeff is overcome with the want to hurt people (“The Feeling“). Then, Jeff’s little brother, Liu, is mugged by a couple of thugs (“This Is How The World Works”) and Jeff severely injures them. Later, Liu tries to understand, but Jeff merely tells him to go to bed, and sings him a lullaby (“Go To Sleep”)
Later, the police arrive at Jeff’s house to arrest him. Liu claims he was the one to beat up the thugs, and he is arrested instead. Jeff, distraught, once again is overcome with the urge to hurt people (“The Feeling” Reprise). He beats up a little girl across the street, and warns her not to tell. A group of kids see Jeff doing this, and go to tell Randy, one of the thugs who mugged Jeff (“Jeff”) . Randy plans to gang up on Jeff at the birthday party he’ll be attending the next day.
Jeff goes to the party, where Randy and his friends cause a scuffle, ending with a bottle of alcohol broken over Jeff’s head (“This Is How The World Works” Reprise). Jeff, in anger, accidentally sets the house on fire (“Jeff’s Transformation”). As everyone escapes the burning building, Jeff is left in the house until he is rescued by firefighters.
Later, Jeff wakes up a disfigured monster (“Jeff/All These Things” Reprise). His mother explains that Liu was released from juvy. Oddly happy with his new appearance, he carves a smile into his face and burns his eyelids off. That night, he goes on a rampage and butchers his family (“The Feeling”). When the reality of what he has done sets in, he mourns the death of his brother (“If This Is Only“). However, soon after this, he begins laughing hysterically, and leaves.
The next day, the town is shocked to hear the news of Jeff and his family. The kids who always picked on Jeff worry about their future, and wonder if Jeff will ever come back for them (“Jeff/All These Things/Finale“).


(The reason I call it the "short version" is that it's actually the SECOND one I wrote. The first draft was made to be longer and it included new subplots and characters that did not appear in the original creepypasta. I wrote this second version to make it more like the original story.)

Okay, I've gotta see this thing! Jeffy would probably be like, "What even is this?" and get all angry and go stab something.

Ugh, I've always called this the worst project I ever worked on. I tried revising it recently, but the material just doesn't work. And I've never been good with parody.

And yes, there would be stabbing. Hopefully not at my expense, though. >_<

Oh, I'll make sure he doesn't stab you. He usually listens to me! ...Sometimes... Not really.

Sorry! Jeffy's a loose cannon, man! Slenderman can barely control him!
