Five Little MonstersMonster, Hairy, Halloween, Creature, Skin, Beast

(Author unknown)

Five little monsters sitting on the floor.

The first one said, "Let's knock on someone's door."

The second on said, "Let's act a little scary."

The third one said, "Why are we so hairy?"

The fourth one said, "I hear a funny sound."

The fifth one said, "There's no one else around."

Then "WHOOSH" went the wind and "EEK!" someone said

So five little monsters ran under the bed.

Four little monsters…

If I were a happy monster, I’d go ha, ha ha!

If I were a sad monster, I’d go boo hoo hoo
