The Monster Inside



I am the monster that lives in your head
I tell you to hide instead of making your bed
I force you to pull your sisterís hair
When a friendís about to sit I pull away the chair
Homeworkís a no-no when I am around
When dishes need washing we are nowhere to be found
I exasperate parents
I annoy all your teachers
I generate noise
Mostly shouting and screeches

I am the monster that lives in your head
Annoying and naughty I make you see red
I am the monster who has no name
And thatís why it is you who will always be blamed
