I had a dream when the stars were bright,
I knew I should be prepared for a scary night.
There is a monster living under my bed,
Its scarlet, inflamed claws fill me with dread.
At the corner of my eye I suddenly see,
A blue monster with purple polka dots looking at me.
I am by myself in the middle of the night,
I hope this monster doesn't give me
too much of a fright!
The monster springs out on his frog-like feet,
Oh no! He's gobbling down my
favourite Halloween treat!
I'm terror-struck, worried, but also quite cross,
This delinquent monster seems to think that
he's the boss.
To my surprise he looks at me with a cheesy grin
And offers me a treat from my Halloween tin.
