Thump Thump Thump

by Barry Louis Polisar

I was all alone, thump, thump, thump
Sitting at home, thump, thump, thump
It was coming up the stairs, thump, thump, thump
I was really scared, thump, thump, thump
What could it be, thump, thump, thump
Coming after me? thump, thump, thump

It stopped in the kitchen, thump, thump, thump
I was shaking, I was twitching, thump, thump, thump
Walking down the hall, thump, thump, thump
Who could I call? thump, thump, thump
Then the lights went out, thump, thump, thump
I began to shout, thump, thump, thump

It was getting close, thump, thump, thump
I thought it was a ghost, thump, thump, thump
I dove under the covers, thump, thump, thump
I screamed for my mother, thump, thump, thump
No one answered back, thump, thump, thump
I was gonna be attacked, thump, thump, thump

I was screaming and a-hollerin', thump, thump, thump
And something was a-followin' thump, thump, thump
Me around the room, thump, thump, thump
I knew that I was doomed, thump, thump, thump
I closed my eyes, thump, thump, thump
I said, "I don't wanna die", thump, thump, thump

What could it be, thump, thump, thump
Coming after me?, thump, thump, thump
I tried again to shout, thump, thump, thump
I never found out, thump, thump, thump
