I Think There’s a Monster Under My Bed!
I think there’s a monster under my bed!
It started off just as a hunch
But now I’m wondering, “Should I tell someone?”
Before I end up as its lunch
The could be a monster under my bed!
Should I inform the authorities at once?
What if I’m wrong and the army came out?
I could end up looking like a dunce
Is that a monster under my bed?
I’m about 88% certain
I swear I just saw a large head pop out
And nibble a bit of the curtain
I’m convinced there’s a monster under my bed!
The reason that I am now sure
Is that when I got out of bed today
I fell fifteen feet to the floor…
