Mother said straight ahaid,
Not to delay or be mislead
I should have heeded her advice,
But he seemed so nice.

And he showed me things,
many beautiful things
that I hadn't thought to explore.
They were off my path,
so I never had dared.
I had been so careful,
I never had cared.

And he made me feel excited,
Well excited and scared.

When he said "Come in.." with that sickening grin,
How could I know what was in store?
Once his teeth were bared though I really got scared
Well, excited and scared

And he drew me close,
And he swallowed me down,
Down a dark slimy path
Where lie secrets that I never want to know.

And when everything familiar seems to disappear forever...
At the end of the path
Was Granny once again.
So we wait in the dark
Until someone sets us free.
And we're brought into the light,
And we're back at the start...

And I know things now, many valuable things
That I hadn't known before.

Do not put your faith in a cape and a hood,
they will not protect you the way that they should
And take extra care with strangers,
even flowers have their dangers.

And though scary is exciting...
Nice is different then good.

Now I know...don't be scared.
Granny is right, just be prepared.
Isn't it nice to know alot?
...and a little bit not.
