There’s Gremlins in the larder
Gremlins in the fridge
Said my little sister
Who’d promised not to fib.
What do you mean?
Don’t try to scare!
I yelled while pulling pig tailed hair
Ow Ow Ow! They ate
Biscuits and chocolate cake
See the crumbs, see the pear
She pointed at the cupboard bare
If that’s the truth, can you explain
Big brown smudges around your nails?
I tried to catch one, but he was quick
In my fingers, his chocolate neck slipped.
So what’s he look like, this Gremlin fiend
If you swear that’s what you’ve seen
Erm erm erm, he’s about my height, with similar hair
Around him you must take great care,
Be sure if you spy him, don’t try and retake
The yummy food…. or mix me for him – by mistake!
