The Lyrics

Remember when your kids were knee-high to grasshoppers, or when YOU were young, rambunctious and bold?...
(Verse 1)
The heart in my mommy's chest,
was beating.
All of her color flushed,
from pink to grey.
In my ears I heard,
voices screaming.
Towards the front door we ran,
and we almost got away!

(Chorus)
I was running with a knife!
Tommy held a pencil!
Right by our Dad,
towards the front door light!
(Dad was yelling)
Ohhh! He's running with a knife!

(Verse 2)
We were going so fast and,
heads were turning.
Ahh, me without diapers, oooh
I let it all hang out!
Towards the front door we,
almost made it.
The doorknob was much too high;
Heard my sister scream and shout-

"Dad, he's running with a knife!
Tommy's got a pencil!"
We laughed so hard,
thought it was so right!
(Dad was yelling)
Ohh! He's running with a knife!

(Guitar Solo)

(Bridge)
Though we ran real hard,
Tom and me,
Daddy caught right up,
No longer free!
Mommy picked me up
then laid me down
Grabbed a diaper late
Cause right then I pee'd!

(Chorus)
I was running with a knife!
Tommy held a pencil!
Right by our Dad,
towards the front door light!
(Dad was yelling)
Ohhh! He's running with a knife!

(Outro)
I'd been running...
running with a knife!

And that's how Michael Myers came to be...but who is Tommy, and why is it so shocking that he has a pencil--unless he was shoving it up his nose?
