Monsters In The Night

1. When I wake up alone
in the dark without a light,
There’s a hundred zillion monsters out
to get me in the night.
My mommy says it’s my
imagination playin’ tricks.
But what does she know? She’s all grown up!
I know because I’m six!
There’s an alien in my closet,
and a ghost behind my door,
A spooky something making
funny noises on the floor,
Skeletons a’hangin’ and a dragon in my bed....
So you can’t tell me they’re only
make-believe inside my head.
2. Well, aliens have tnetacles
that wiggle in the dark,
And dragon skin is scratchy
and their teeth are made of sparks,
And fire and smoke and skeletons
have bones that clank and grind.
I seen ‘em so I know
they’re not just ‘magines in my mind.
3. Well, ghosts are made of nothin’,
they’re just shadows in the air,
But because I cannot touch ‘em
doesn’t mean he isn’t there.
And all those other creepy things
I hear but cannot see....
May not be real to Mommy,
but they’re awful real to me!
4. When I wake up alone
in the dark I’m never scared,
Even though I know there’s monsters
all around me every where.
There’s a funny thing about them
nasty monsters in the night....
They go away like magic
when my mom turns on the light!
No more alien in my closet,
no ghost behind my door,
No spooky something making
funny noises on the floor.
No skeletons a’hangin’,
not a dragon left in sight!
But you can’t tell me they’re make-believe,
they’re just afraid of light!
