They may not look like monsters do
There are no monsters anymore
Not hiding ‘neath your bed
They’re all in Washington D. C.
At the Capitol instead

They may not look like monsters do
They don’t show fangs and claws
They do their evil deeds in suits
They hide behind closed doors

These monsters are more fearsome than
Those ogres in your sleep
They lie and cheat and do their worst
It makes you want to weep

They took a pledge to serve us all
Something that they’ve forgotten
And now they only serve themselves
They’re evil and they’re rotten

And yet some people cheer them on
They’ve fallen for those lies
They too have given up their souls
They aren’t very wise

It’s scary to think what will come
Democracy’s at stake
Yet they continue to disrupt
With chaos in their wake

We have to stay firm and resist
Stand up for truth and light
With honor and integrity
Preserve what’s fair and right

So search your conscience and your heart
Your country needs you now
If we can scare these monsters off
Then we’ll pull through somehow
