The monsters in the closet,

Shapes in the dark.

In the beginning little one,

It will strike fear in your little heart.

Shadows dancing that you just can’t see.

They follow you, and they follow me.

And even when you think you’re on you’re own.

Know you’ve got a friend in the unknown.

And you’ll know that the unknown aren’t children of doom.

Just remember dear one,

When your on your own,

You’ve always got a friend in the children of the unknown.
