"Chilly Down" is a song written for Labyrinth.

When Sarah encounters the Fireys in the forest, they sing this song to her while dismembering themselves, doing wild and crazy things. At the end of the song, when Sarah begins throwing the creatures heads around to escape, the Fireys make an attempt to remove her head. She is rescued by Hoggle.

The song is performed by the five Fireys, voiced by Kevin Clash, Danny John-Jules, Charles Augins and Richard Bodkin.

The film version of the song makes a number of cuts to the song, including an intro stanza and a brief rap by Firey 2 before he regains his head.

This is the only song in the film that is not performed by David Bowie, although Bowie recorded a demo version under its original title, "Wild Things." (YouTube)
