I slept too long, I knew I would,
And now a shadow creeps along the floor,
Up to no good!
I tuck my toes back under the sheets,
And cover my head, my eyes are too big,
What if they see me?
They shadow man appears from under my bed,
First his fingers and then his head,
His evil eyes look right through me.
He reaches out and touches my face,
Icy fingers, I feel their embrace,
First a squeeze, next a tug, and then nothing.
