Monster in a Box

There's a monster in my house!
It came in a great big box.
Mommy says it isn't so,
but something ate my socks.

I used to have a full sock drawer,
with red ones and some blue.
I even had some white ones,
'cause I wear white socks, too.

There's a monster in my house!
It came in a great big box
and I must make it angry
or it wouldn't eat my socks.

It lives around here, somewhere.
(whisper) Shhhh! I hope it's not around!
'Cause if you ever wake it up,
it makes such awful sounds.

Most times, it says, 'Yum-Yum-Yum-Yum'
Sometimes, it just goes 's w i s h'.
But I know it eats my socks up
without a spoon or dish.

Mom says they're underneath the bed
or spread around the floor
(well the monster musta' burped 'em there
when she opened up the door) .

There's a monster in my house!
It came in a great big box!
Mom says it's just the washer...
but it's a monster that eats my socks!

Oh CJ, you take the common washing machine and make it a monster...but a kind of nice monster that only eats socks. You see, that where your talent is so valuable. You can make a monster that isn't frightful to children.
