The Lyrics

OK I wrote this because just a week ago I saw the scary jabberwock scene from the 1985 version of "Alice In Wonderland" (thanks to youtube) and got the spit scared out of me the first time I mean really and to make matters worse my older brother (known to this site only as charmander x) found out about it and now whenever i go into a dark room he begins flickering the lights off and on and making the scary evil noises whilst walking slowly towards me (like the jabberwock did) and everytime i scream well i guess that's what I get for laughing at all the people who said it was scary and I just had to see it!
the jabberwock is after me
let me tell you he sure is scary
he seemed to come right out of the dark
and now I've got a fast beatin' heart
well i read this poem got a little freaked
it got dark and i shouldn'ta peeked
well he's pitch black
his eyes are evil red
and now that scary image keep's a playin' in my head yeah!

Speak Of Jabberwock here he comes
yeah he's got this poor girl on the run
well i swear he's not a pretty green
he's the scariest thing i've ever seen
Speak Of Jabberwock here he comes
Uhh.... gotta go!

in the mirror scary place
you guys should see his demon like face
like a bat outta heck
and giving me goosebumps
scary beyond all reason
flickering lights
now he's here scaring me
oh no i think i just peed
scaring the spit of everyone he can find
sharp teeth evil eyes
oh i hope it's a disguise
or else the jabberwock's been real all along oh!


try to duck try to dodge try to shake him
nowhere to run nowhere to hide I can't escape him
he's everyewhere i go he knows my every move
but I know soon he will lose


Speak Of Jab Speak Of Jab Speak Of Jabberwock
here he comes Speak Of Jab Speak Of Jab Speak Of Jabberwock
here he comes Speak Of Jab Speak Of Jab Speak Of Jabberwock here he comes
Speak Of Jabberwock here he comes Uhh... gotta go!

(spoken: (jabberwock goes towards alice) alice: no i'm not scared of you you're not real!!! jabberwock: huh? well that wasn't very nice! (runs off crying))
Oh BTW I'm 13 years old and it scares me! yikes!
