The Lyrics

Full title is There is Something in my Basement That I Think is Vicious.
Oh…
There is something in my basement that I think is vicious
It haunts my dreams when I’m asleep, and torments my best wishes
It takes the taste out of all foods I once thought were delicious
There is something in my basement that I think is vicious

If I go down there, I might die
If I go down there, I might die
If I go down there, I might die
If I go down here, I might die

There’s something down below the house that scares me half to death
Sometimes when I am near the door, I hear its rattling breath
I hear it gnashing pointy fangs and grating its long claws
I fear it won’t be long until it has me in its jaws

Oh, there is something in my basement that I think is vicious
I hear its growling through the pipes when I’m washing the dishes
It’s something that would terrify the creepiest of fishes
There is something in my basement that I think is vicious

If I go down there, I might die
If I go down there, I might die
If I go down there, I might die
If I go down here, I might die

That monster in the cellar always causes fright in me
I know it will not stop until it knows I’m history
I’m losing sleep from its loud roars, it’s driving me insane
If it doesn’t stop, I’ll put a bullet in my brain

Oh, there is something in my basement that I think is vicious
It’ll eat me raw, no wasting time with forks and dishes
I know it’s after me because it thinks I am delicious
There is something in my basement that I think is vicious


If I go down there, I might die
If I go down there, I might die
If I go down there, I might die
If I go down here, I might die

I worked up all my courage and went down to take a look
To finally end this nonsense ‘bout this fire-breathing schnook
I turned on all the lights, and what I saw gave me a shock
It only was a giant rat, nibbling at a wooden block

There was something in my basement that I thought was vicious
There was something in my basement that I thought was vicious
There was something in my basement that I thought was vicious
There was something in my basement that I thought was vicious!

Missing a beat on the title line and a couple verse lines. Good paranoia.

Interesting take on this big 7 song. Pacing was not quite perfect, But I felt the idea and execution over all was pretty good, and I commend you for taking on this song.

That was great. All i have is a haunted spirit, a woman died in my house MANY years ago. So, anyway. That was funny.

Top notch in the humor dept. But, yeah, although I think the syllable count was pretty much there, I found the upbeats colliding with the phrasing almost everywhere. In other words, it stresses the wrong syllables or melodic note. Otherwise, however, it's fantastic.
