Life sings her heavy song
I put on my wolf suit on
And I howl all, all night
I run around and lose my mind

To where all the wild things are
I go where the wild things are

I'd take a boat all year long
And those monsters that are chasing me all day long
But I ain't afraid of where the wild things are
I go where the wild things are

There I'll be king of them all

Where the wild things are...
I know where the wild things are..

    Lyric CorrectionLife sings a heavy song
    I put my wolf suit on
    And I howl all all the night
    I run around and lose lose my mind
    To where the wild things are
    I go where the wild things are

    I take a boat all year long
    And there's monsters that are chasing me all day long
    But I ain't afraid of where the wild things are
    I go to where the wild things are
    There I'll be king of them all
    Where the wild things are


    These are the correct lyrics as listed on Patrick Watson's website.

    My OpinionThis is my most listened to song by Patrick Watson. I'm surprised there aren't more Comments.

    I love the mood he creates here. This song is so mysterious. I put this track on my Halloween Mix. I wish this could of be in or on or associated with the Where the Wild Things Are Film.

    I love the hook "I know where the wild things are"

    Is this anyone else's favorite too?
