There's a creepy old man, living in my town He owns the creepy old house, at the end of the road With his creepy old dog, barking all day long In his creepy backyard, where no one's ever been Creepy old man, roaming in the neighborhood, never understood Creepy old man, all the kids are scared of you, there's no place for you When he goes to the mall, everyone avoids him No one ever meets his eye, no one ever talks to him He quickly gets some dog food, and goes straight to the checkout He leaves quickly as he came, talking dirty to himself
Swamp Thing 06:24
Those who live near the swamp know it well You hear strange noises when the night falls down The dogs all go mad when the mist comes through The elders all speak of a weird and deadly creature People have disappeared with no reason Almost only girls, helpless and young My old neighbor can't find her cat I know it's looking for flesh tonight Swamp thing, lurking In the shadows, at nightfall It carries a demon stench Everywhere it goes It leaves a trail of death Devours flesh and bones It carries a demon stench Everywhere it goes It leaves a trail of death Then it slowly goes Back to the swamp
I was sitting at the bar When a man came through the door You know, the rural type Beefy and covered in scars He had a story to tell Was trying to draw the attention He said “tonight the drink's on me” And so we all listened And he told us how He fought a grizzly bear Armed with nothing but a knife We believe him now We haven't seen the bear But he showed us the knife He told us how He hid through the bushes Waiting all night long For the bear to come out Then he described The fight that followed He said “have a drink on me” And so we all listened It was a bloody fight He almost died more than once The bear fought mighty well And its claws were sharp as hell He looked at the door And his face turned blue We thought maybe he drank too much But then we saw them too Four cops rushed into the bar And told the man “stay where you are !” They put the knife in a plastic bag And took the man away And they told us how Thinking she was a bear He killed his ugly wife We believe him now We haven't seen the bear But we have seen his wife !
