The monsters formally asked,
When the bigger little girl came along,
Requested an all access pass
To scare her all night long.
As her mother, of course I said, "No."
I banned them all from our home.
I told them that they had to go,
Spectre, beastie, and gnome.
When her imagination started to play
And kept her awake full of fear,
I was able to truthfully say
Not a single monster was near.
And because I'm the mom, it was true
No monster ever could stay,
And when we had sweetie number 2
The monsters still had to obey.
Oh, sure, they begged for reprieve,
For me to repeal the harsh rules.
I stuck to my guns. They must leave!
So long all you demons and ghouls!
Try it, when your babes feel a scare
And things go bump in the night.
Tell the monsters to get out of there.
Mom says NO to the fright.
'Strue. 'Tworks. Our house is a monster-free zone.
