My little mind was full of dread
There were monsters in the shed
Perhaps they're in the house instead
Under the bed! Under the bed!
Afraid of things I cannot see
What will those creatures do to me
My brother watching with pure glee
They're after me! They're after me!
Brother laughing with all his might
Said they only come out at night
Sent to bed soon after the fight
Leave on the light! Leave on the light!
Mother took pity the next day
She sent my brother on his way
No more bad monsters in our play
Let the light stay! Let the light stay!
