The Bumble Bump.
Last night while everyone was sleeping
I was awake and my heart was leaping.
There was a terrible crashing on the outside door
I jumped out of bed and fell flat on the floor.
I bumped my head and stubbed a toe
And there in my yard was an eerie glow.
Now I might be brave and I might be big
But it looked like a bumble bump in a bad wig.
So I wanted to run and I wanted to hide
But the eerie thing asked to come inside.
And I’m always polite so I said, Please do
Would you like me to cook some asparagus stew.
And the Bumble bump said yes, that’d be nice
So I put on a saucepan to boil some rice.
If you have never seen a bumble bump before
Then you can’t imagine just what’s in store.
He’s big as a camel and ugly as a bat
But his heart is really lots nicer than that
When the rice was cooked, the asparagus too
We sat down and chatted as good friends do
So like all good stories there’s a moral to this tale.
Even scary monsters can be really quite nice when you get to know them.[audio
