Monster in My Closet
What's that in the closet?
Whatever shall I do?
There's a monster in my closet
Oh, how I wish my mother knew
Mother sent me on to bed
And told me to go to sleep
I pulled the covers up o'er my head
But I just had to take a peek
There he was, all large and hairy
With giant glowing eyes
Grownups say there are no monsters
Why tell kids such big lies?
In the darkness of my room
I could still see the hideous sight
Oh how I wish Mother would come
Open the door and switch on the light
"Mother!" I managed to cry out loud
Her footsteps grew louder as she neared
The door swung open, the light turned on
And the monster disappeared!
