Monster

Annie had a boy but she thought more of herself,
She couldn't leave the bottle up there on the shelf,
So on the way, she created a monster.
A couple bottles in and she'd fly into a rage,
Bobby had to grow up too fast for his age,
And so you see, she created a monster.

A monster's not a scary face,
And a monster's really not that brave,
And the monsters don't just come out on Hallowe'en.
So if you find yourself bored with this life of peace,
Just get yourself a sucker for a couple of weeks,
And you can do it too - you can create a monster.


Bobby grew up and got himself a wife,
But he couldn't run away from the rest of his life,
So on the way, he created a monster.
He never quite felt that things were right,
So he'd blame it all on Rita and he'd pick a fight
Then one day, he took his life, and left behind a monster.

A monster's not a scary face,
And a monster's really not that brave,
And the monsters don't just come out on Hallowe'en.
So if you find yourself bored with this life of peace,
Just get yourself a sucker for a couple of weeks,
And you can do it too - you can create a monster.


Well, Rita found herself feeling so lonely,
That she stole herself a baby to start a family,
And on the way, she created a monster.
See, that baby had a daddy by the name of Pete,
Tracked down Rita, shot her dead in the street,
And then the cycle was complete - they had created a monster.

A monster's not a scary face,
And a monster's really not that brave,
And the monsters don't just come out on Hallowe'en.
So if you find yourself bored with this life of peace,
Just get yourself a sucker for a couple of weeks,
And you can do it too - you can create a monster.
