Something's Out in the Forest

I wrote these song lyrics a long, long time ago and scared a bunch of kids with it. (I included scary howling in pee-in-your-pants places, which did the trick). Those kids are now college students, and this song is the only thing they remember about me.

I'm okay with that!

Something's Out in the Forest

by Tracy Farr

Something's out in the forest,
Something howls in the night,
It only comes out when it's hungry,
And oooh, it's a horrible sight.

I saw it one night in the forest
Running from tree to tree,
Moving faster than lightning
And it stopped when it saw me.

CHORUS
So don't...you...go to sleep
It might...be...behind those trees,
Be still...and...don't even breathe,
It's out to get you!

It's eyes glowed like burning embers.
It's hair all dirty and brown.
A hideous scream did it cry out,
That I ran all the way to town.

CHORUS
So don't...you...go to sleep
It might...be...behind those trees,
Be still...and...don't even breathe,
It's out to get you!
