Mama, Mama, help me get home… Lauren Oliver,

“Mama, Mama, help me get home I’m out in the woods,I am out on my own.

I found me a werewolf, a nasty old mutt It showed me its teeth and went straight for my gut.

Mama, Mama, help me get home I’m out in the woods,I am out on my own.

 I was stopped by a vampire,a rotting old wreck It showed me its teeth and went straight for my neck.

Mama, Mama, put me to bed I won’t make it home,I’m already half-dead.

I met an Invalid,and fell for his art He showed me his smile, and went straight for my heart.
