Shh....there's someone at my door;
think I'll go peek to see
who's out there in the night
trying to frighten me.

Shh....can you hear them call?
I think they said my name.
Could it be someone I know
playing a silly game?

Shh....did you hear that noise?
It sounded like a creak,
as if my front door opened;
think I'll go take a peek.

Shh....do you see those eyes?
They're looking straight at me.
They glitter in the dark;
wonder what they could be.

Quick....let's put the kettle on,
invite them in for tea,
then maybe they'll be nice
and stop trying to frighten me!
