Scritch,

Scratch.

It's only faint,

Maybe your imagination.

You're going to ignore it --

Not let it lead to agitation.

 

Scritch,

Scratch.

It's becoming clearer.

Must be a rat or a mouse

On the loose

Inside your house.

 

Scritch,

Scratch.

It's in your room.

The scraping is steady,

You lie in your bed

But to run you are ready.

 

Scritch,

Scratch.

It comes from your wall,

From over your head.

It seems all around you

And under your bed.

 

Scritch,

Scratch.

That shadow there!

It starts to emerge,

You bite back a scream

But you're on the verge.

 

Scritch,

Scratch.

You've left it too late

To make your escape,

Those claw-like nails --

Your life they'll take.

 

Scritch,

Scratch.

Those hands grip

Around your neck.

They're digging in,

Your skin to wreck.

 

Scritch,

Scratch.

Just a glimpse,

Those eyes are red,

Your only thought

'Cause then you're dead.
