Rumpelstilskin Mini-Songs

In the end of the story of the wicked hobgoblin Rumpelstilskin, the title character gives the Queen a chance to win her baby back if she can guess his name.  If you remember, Rumpelstilskin helped the Queen out before she was Queen, and magically spun straw into gold for her.  It basically got her out of a tight jam AND made her queen - so she made out pretty well.  BUT - in exchange, the little guy told her that he wanted her first born child. That'd be a no-go to a normal, good, person, but I guess the future queen was so flustered (plus she wanted that crown pretty bad) that she agreed.  So maybe Rump isn't so bad, but he shouldn't be going around making deals for kids, cuz the FBI really doesn't stand for that sort of thing - unless it's a legal adoption kind of sitch.  

These are 4 little songs of the Queen trying to guess the name of the hobgoblin, sung by Helen E. Myers.
