The Lyrics

There's a monster in the basement...OR IS THERE?
Hey there

Know you came down here for a beer
Not expecting me to be down here
I'm no monster, sounds awkward to then reassure
That these scary nails are from a bad manicure
It's shaky, but it's the truth, I swear

In your basement, it's me
In your basement, it's me
I know that you wanna leave
There's no need, just take a seat
I'm in your basement, it's me

I smell like scum (smell just like scum), drip it on the floor
Back spines are poking (pointily poking) where your booze is stored
I'm aware that my butt is of such a big size (ooh)
That if I turned aghast, you would be flung aside
But the truth (yeah) that I'm bad: are you sure?

Oh, I know I'm not perfect
Murder, I don't deserve it
Ignore the reddish fluid on my teeth, please (oh-oh)

In your basement, it's me (it's only me)
In your basement, it's me (it's only me)
You're within your rights to freak (within your rights to freak)
I won't eat you, don't like meat (won't eat you, don't like meat)
I'm in your (yeah) basement, it's me (it's only me)

Oh-oh, dunno how I got in this position
More than just a bit hungover, right
Like you'll be, like you'll be, like you'll be, trust me
For your messed pants, hope I'll be forgiven
No, never meant to give you such a fright
I'm friendly, I'm friendly, I'm friendly, trust me

In your basement, it's me
In your basement, it's me
The mess, I'm happy to clean
Just fetch me a mop now, please?
I'm in your basement, it's me
In your basement (in your basement), it's me (it's only me) (it's only me)
In your basement (in your basement), it's me, yeah-eah-eah-eah (it's only me)
I get you're frightened of me (I get you're frightened of me)
Talk to me, the truth, you'll see
I'm in your basement, it's me

You thought the twist would involve a lack of a monster, and technically there was no "monster", just as long as we're using that word to describe the beast's personality. And you thought Wednesday was twisty!
