Lyrics

Monster

Written By: Fergus McKay

I've got 16 fingers
Which is four more than I should
I've a heart that's made of leather
And my bones are made of wood
I've been trying to be wicked
But I can't help being good
People say that I'm unpleasant
But I'm just misunderstood

Well that say that I'm a monster
But I've feelings just like you,
Cut me and I'll bleed
Break my heart and I'll be blue
I don't like to think I'm ugly
But I'm well aware it's true
That's why I'm awkward around women
'Cos they're slightly scary too.

Parents tell their little children
That I'll take them all away
"If you're bad he'll come to get you"
Is what I often hear them say
So I shed a little tear
Because I'm just not made that way
I could never eat a human
Not completely anyway.

Well that say that I'm a monster
But I've feelings just like you,
Cut me and I'll bleed
Break my heart and I'll be blue
I don't like to think I'm ugly
But I'm well aware it's true
That's why I'm awkward around women
'Cos they're slightly scary too.

Now I stay here in my castle
With the windows open wide
'Cos I like to breathe the fresh air
When I'm locked away inside
And I lie here in my casket
With another one beside
So I never get too lonely
When I'm with my headless bride

Well that say that I'm a monster
But I've feelings just like you,
Cut me and I'll bleed
Break my heart and I'll be blue
I don't like to think I'm ugly
But I'm well aware it's true
That's why I'm awkward around women
'Cos they're slightly scary too.
