Beware of things that go Bump in the night
as you lie awake in your bed,
Beware of things that go bump in the dark
and fill your heart with dread.

What makes those noises in an empty room
when you know no one else is home,
what is it creeping around in there
when you know that you're alone?

what is that shape in the dark shadow
is it a monster lurking there,
or is it an evil clown with a knife
or clothes draped over a chair?

Beware of bumps in the night
for somthing might be after you,
it may be a monster or a demon
and it may have a friend or two!
Bob Mitchum :)
