lyrics

I saw them hungry eyes look at me
With a fierce and wild eyed stare
He's busted down the gate
And now he's coming after me
I got to get on away from here
I bet my feet didn't even touch the ground
I was pursued by the hounds from hell
At the forests edge I got the nerve to turn around
It was just Mrs. Johnson's cow
It was just Mrs. Johnson's cow

Chorus
Mama always said don't go in them woods
After evening shadows fall
There's animal that are hungry and they'll eat you if the could
And they will catch you if you fall
They will catch you if you fall

Now we'd been told not to play in that old barn
Or we might meet the boogey man
He's hiding in the shadows with teeth as long as nails
And he will get you if he can
So we took up bets on a dee double dare
To see who'd be the first to run
Well the boogey man was gone
And some polecats were at home
And that is one bet nobody won
That is one bet nobody won
