about

This is a Halloween favorite.

lyrics

You’re a monster.
You’re a monster and you know it.
You roll the red carpet
You roll into the night
You roll out the hair piece
Then you dim the lights

You turn on the disco ball
You slip on the white leather shoes
You flip on the neon, the LEDs, and the strobe
You slide to the dance floor
But you keep on your shades
You’re the monster in the blue suit
The monster of the sea
Slipped onto dry land
Like a pirate in a reverse siege

You’re a monster.
You’re a monster but she doesn’t know it.
She steps onto the red carpet
She steps out into the night
She steps out of her gown of pearls
As you dim the lights

She is mesmerized by your disco ball
She slips out of her heels
She watches the neon, the LEDs, and the strobe
She slides into your bedroom
But you keep on your shades
You’re the monster in the blue suit
The monster of the sea
Slipped onto dry land
Like a pirate in a reverse siege

Don’t love her too much
Don’t pretend you have a heart
You’re all brawn in dark waters
And with you there is no good place to start

Maybe you’re Poseidon, the great Neptune of the Sea
But you’re too macho for even a Titan
You’re tuna in a can of Chicken of the Sea
You’re best if you go back to your little dingy den--
A monster of the sea!
