Our Little Girl Wants to Be a Monster



I was sleepless in the middle of the night a few months ago when I wrote this song for our oldest grandchild, Jazra.  Here are the lyrics:


Our Little Girl Wants to Be a Monster


Our little girl wants to be a monster
When she runs out to play –
When her friends start to romp, she does the Frankenstein Stomp
And scares her friends away


Our little girl wants to be a monster,
An Invisible Man named Hank –
But when she’s been bad, it makes us mad
When we can’t see which end to spank!

           And when she sees a full moon
           She points and looks over the roof –
           I thought it was only the boy-childs
           Who want to grow into a wolf!

Yes, our angel wants to be a monster;
It’s driving her parents mad –
They feel such shame when she tells her name,
“But you can call me Vlad!”

           And when she goes in swimming,
           She’ll never come in too soon.
           She won’t tan – I think she’s greening,
           Like a kiddie from the Black Lagoon

Our little girl wants to be a monster;
“What a shame!” her folks lament.
But soon will come the day her baby sister comes to stay
-- And we can start a new experiment!
