"Bumps in the Night" is set squarely as a "Halloween Song", and tells the story of a 6 yr. old declaring bravery in the face of creepy crawlers closing in. A funky, bluesy tune that bumps along with a spooky scratchy arrangement that's sure to delight.


BUMPS IN THE NIGHT Mr. Whirly © 2015

I hear the scratching and the sniff sniff
grumble and the hissssss
of the creature in the corner

I hear the floorboards creaking
while the big scary's sneaking to my door
feels like I’m a goner

I’m lying in my bed
listening to the wind whip
these old house bones

But I’m gonna be brave,
got to be brave
cuz I’m only six years old

I hear the drip drop tinkle in the sink
and the tick-tock-clock
I think it’s got to be midnight

I see old witches hat
her wicked black cat
got the snaggletooth stare looking’ my way

I’m lying in my bed
and I get the feeling
that something ain’t right

but you’re not gonna scare me
if you come near me
with alla your
bumps in the night

There’s a shadow on the wall
I follow with my eyes while it rises
straight up to the ceiling

it’s kinda funny how easy
my tummy get queasy
but I know that I can deal with what I’m feeling

I’m lying in my bed -
spidey senses tingle
cuz something ain’t right

But you’re not gonna scare me
if you come near me
with alla your bumps in the night…
