Once upon a dream,
I dreamt about a man called Sawney Bean,
So take a seat
Just to tell you he eats human meat.
In the forest we were walking
Then Sawney Bean made a grab
So I got my knife out and went to stab.
He ran away
Then probably back to his den,
Because he ran away
I fell to the ground in dismay.
I called the army
Once I got back to the farmy,
We would train
And keep tricks in our brain.
We began the battle
Once we got into the forest
And out of the field of cattle.
It was getting dark
When we got into the wood of bark, I was getting scared And was about to shout but never dared.
Then, out of nowhere the family did jump
It gave me such a big fright
I fell over a stump,
Then Sawney Bean came in sight
So I ran through the fight
But he came over with a big bite!
Ow! It was sore
But I wasn't going to let him kill me by gore.
So I got out my gun
And the bullet went through him like cutting a bun,
Now the sky was as dark as coal
And as cold as a pole.
Now the battle was nearly finished
The battle took so long
It could go in the book of Guinness!
Victory was ours
After a few hours.
That was my dream
Of Sawney Bean!
