Beware of things that go Bump in the night
Things that You cannot see,
Beware of Things that go Bump in the dark
You never know what they might be.

Those Little noises that You hear
when you are alone in Your House,
could be a Terrible Monster there
or maybe a frightened mouse.

What makes that noise in an empty room
what lurks in the shadpws there,
what is that dark thing in the corner
clothes draped over a Chair?

Beware of Things that go Bump in the Night
as You try to sleep in you're bed,
for it might be a Monster there
and You might wake up dead!

Or it might be a terrible Demon
unknown to Me and You,
that lurks within that dark closet
and It might have a Friend or two.

You tell Your self it is nothing
merely the wind in the Eves,
but Monsters are very crafty
and You they seek to decieve.

They hide there in the shadows
waiting till you are asleep,
then they slowly come from the darkness
and across your floor they creep.

They may want to eat you
or drag you into a dark place
or it may be a tiney mouse
too timid to show you it's face.
