Try some Monster Mum advice,
Take a daily bath in slime
And dust your fur with tiny lice.
Oh yes, that’s lovely, really nice,
And quite the thing, that touch of lice.
Add just a touch of make up
Crushed beetle to your cheek,
Dustbin dribble on your lashes
And a squirt of Eau De Reek.
Oh yes, that’s lovely, quite unique,
And just the thing, that whiff of Reek.
Now come and sit upon my knee,
Let’s have a monster hug,
You scruffy, stinky, lovely beast,
My gorgeous cuddle bug.
