Dark and lonely forest, dark and lonely me,
whispering, "don't you leave"
Slowly beaconed by the changing of the leaves
The night is young and so is she

Beams of gold now turn to silver as the forest turns to night
It'll be alright, be alright, but it won't be alright tonight
Basket full of treasures; candy, peaches, pie, and pleasures
Well that's all lovely stuff but it's not enough

I will find you by moonlight
And you will try to hide

Tell me all your fears, dear, I can guess what they're all about
I whisper in your ear with an onion grin and a whiskered snout
The colour that's in your hair is on your lips it's in the trees
It's in my heart, it's on my tongue, it's everything I see

I will find you by moonlight
And you will try to hide

Now that I've found you, I'll never let you go
Don't you know by which the bonds we're held are eternal
And it brings me great pain to hear you scream for escape
One more peep from you and it'll be your last peep

You've run from me for the last time...

Suckin' on cherry fingers, lovely lady, tasty lingers
Chewin' on candy kisses, don't be shy you know it's just us
I pour the moon into a cup, you suck it down and I'll lick it up
Play yahtzee with your eyes, snake eyes almost every single time
I'll eat your family tree: Mommy, Daddy, Doggie, Granny
I dug a grave for thee then hid it deep inside my belly

I will find you by moonlight
And you will try to hide
