I woke up one night to find a rat in my bed. Here's what happened...

lyrics

Rat Attack

I was asleep
in my big bed
I heard a sound
around my head
open my eyes
what do I see
but a great big rat
stare back at me

He start to
run-a, run-a, run-a, run-a
run-a, run-a, run-a, run-a
run-a, run-a, run-a, run-around
I said
get out, get out, get out, get out, get out, get out, get outta this town!
You don’t belong
It’s just wrong
You stinking rat
Get outta my house


I see him fly
in a crazy blur
of skinny legs
and dirty fur
and then he runs
right outta sigh -
my furry lover
gonna spend the night.

I start to
run-a, run-a, run-a, run-a
run-a, run-a, run-a, run-a
run-a, run-a, run-a, run-around
I said
get out, get out, get out, get out, get out, get out, get outta this town!
You don’t belong (hell, no!)
It’s just wrong
You stinking rat
Get outta my house

he start to
run-a, run-a, run-a, run-a
run-a, run-a, run-a, run-a
run-a, run-a, run-a, run-around
I said
get out, get out, get out, get out, get out, get out, get outta this town!
You don’t belong (hell, no!)
It’s just wrong
You are a rat
or maybe a mouse
get outta town
get outta my house
you stinking rat…
Get outta my house! ‘
