There Is A Green Monster


There Is A Green Monster

There is a green Monster
Under my bed
There is a green monster
Running loose in my head

Some call it envy
I call it a curse
Some call it envy
It could be much worse

How did it get there
It's now in my brain
How did it get there
Its driving me insane

Could someone please help me
And drive it away
Could someone please help me
Please help me- I pray

Do not let envy
Get into your head
If you're fueled by envy
You're better off dead
