I must offer to you a confession, I like movies that give me a fright. If the subject is horror, I got to see more or I won't be contented all night. You may call it my ghoulish obsession, It's a subject on which I get chatty. But the worst one it seems, haunting all of my dreams Was the cockroach that ate Cincinnati!
I've seen ghouls and hobgoblins and witches And some moth-eaten werewolves with fangs. There were creatures that chattered and others that clattered, And Japanese monsters with fangs (ah-so). Frankenstein gives me the shakes, And Count Dracula's driving me batty. But they're not on a par with the worst one by far The cockroach that ate Cincinnati (ha ha ha ha)!
Oh, he must have needed a seltzer. It's amazing how much he got down! For lunch, he'd just chew up a suburb or two, And for dinner, he ate the whole town (Burp!). Willard just sent me out laughing, I thought Ben looked a little bit ratty (sorry, sorry about that), But they're not half as bad as the worst scare I've had - The Cockroach that ate Cincinnati!
Oh, my heart nearly stopped; he would never be topped - The cockroach that ate Cincinnati! Ole!
