Hey hey, I got a monster in the closet
The door's open even though I tried to lock it
His teeth are long, he's gonna eat me today
No matter what you say, I won't be okay, so there
Hey hey, won't you just turn out your pocket
And give me something I can put up on the docket
A simple strategy for fighting it back
It's not like talking to it nice is gonna put it on track

Just a stick or a broom that'll help me get it out of the room
I don't wanna meet my own doom tonight

So hey, just help me out
Lend me a shotgun please for just one round

Hey hey, I got a monster in the closet
We used some tape and now we're hoping that'll block it
Must be a gate into another dimension
And now I feel like a moderator in a detention
Oh yeah I'm, hey hey, just a picture in a locket
Now that it's gone and tore my bones out of their sockets
A solemn memory for those who knew best
But for the monster in the closet, I wasn't even a test

So why couldn't you loan me a little help of your own
You couldn't even look in the room to make sure

So hey, just help me out
Lend me a shotgun please for just one round
Hey, just help me out
Lend me an 8-gauge please, put it in my mouth

Well I called, I called your name out loud
You never came and it was just the bones they found
It didn't leave a single but of meat
Not enough for positive police ID
And now I'm gone, gone, gone
Don't you regret never giving me the time you said
You'd spend sitting by my crackpot ass in bed

So hey, just help me out
Lend me a shotgun please for just one round
Hey, just help me out
Lend me an 8-gauge please, put it in my mouth
