Dirty creature come my way
From the bottom of a big black lake
Shuffles up to my window
Making sure I'm awake
S'probably gonna pick my brain
Got me in a vice like grip
He said one slip
You're dead, huh

Dirty creature of habit
Little horror here to stay
Anyone in his right mind
Would tell it to go awaym hey
But the river of dread runs deep
Full of unspeakable things
The creature don't mess around
I don't wanna mess with him

I don't wanna sail, I don't wanna sail
I don't wanna, I don't wanna sail tonight
Dirty creature's got me at a
Disadvantage from the inside

Save me
It's a dirty

Tentacles on the brain
Keep me from falling asleep
I'm rooted to the spot
The beast don't know when to stop
Sneaking up from behind
Binds and gags my wits
Dirty creature got my head
Exactly where he wants it


I don't wanna sail, I don't wanna sail
I don't wanna, I don't wanna sail tonight
Taniwha is waiting for me
Just below the surface so bright

Yeah, oo

Even as we speak
The dirty creature springs a nasty surprise

Dirty creature knows my type
Found it in a magazine
He's seen the look of fear before
Splattered all over the screen
The animal magnet thug
Draws me out of myself
I need a dragon slayer
Who can save me from myself

I don't wanna sail, I don't wanna sail
I don't wanna set sail
For the middle of nowhere tonight
Dirty creature's got me at a
Disadvantage from the inside

Yeah, oo

I don't wanna sail
Upon the waters of invention tonight

Get away
Dirty creature
Do again
Stay away, OK?

Scared of the dark
Scared of the dark
Always had this fear of the dark
Ever since I can remember
Had to leave the door open and the light on when I sleep
'Cause that's when the creature creeps
He creeps in the dark
He comes down the hall
He turns the corner
And my heart sinks
And I, I know that he is a slime
And he has a stink and a stench
Of the flilth that reins within
And you have to tell him where to go
Or you're going to be in big trouble for a long time
You have to say, "Dirty creature
just go"
And be firm, don't accept his terms
'Cause he's a bad one, he's a bad one
He's a-makin' a sad one of you and me, dirty creature
Crazy man who's in the side
He's lookin' good, he's dressin' sharp
He's got a mouth that plays like a harp
Who talks to you, caresses you
The words are bait, and everything's amazing
Wanna say to him, "go"
Go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go, go

Tim: Aw, come on, come on, none of that. Neil's a married man. Now me, on the other hand.
