What Do Monsters Do?
What do monsters do?
They stretch and touch their toes.

What do monsters do?
They comb their purple hair.

What do monsters do?
They stick out their green tongues.

What do monsters do?
They brush their teeth with a broom.

What do monsters do?
They rub their yellow eyes.

What do monsters do?
They wiggle their orange ears.

Boy, am I glad that I'm not a monster!
If I were a Monster
If I were a happy monster, I'd go ha, ha, ha!

If I were a sad monster, I'd go boo, hoo, hoo.

If I were a mad monster, I'd go stomp, stomp, stomp!

If I were a scared monster, I'd go AAHH! AAHH! AAHH!

But I'm just me, you see, so I'll go (sound or action child's choice)
If You Are a Monster
Sung to: " If you're happy and you know it"

If you're a monster and you know it wave your arms
If you're a monster and you know it wave your arms.
If you're a monster and you know then your arms will surely show it.
If you're a monster and you know it wave your arms.

...show your claws
...gnash your teeth
...stomp your feet
...growl out loud
