Midnight

Midnight...
When the rats go crawling...
When the rats come crawling...
Delighting...
In the quieting...

Midnight...
The dogs... are barking...
The cats... are hunting...
And the rats... are... crawling....

Through the bushes and the flowers...
Through the gutters and the streams...
Through the backyards and the front yards...
Through the darkness and the gleam...

Watch your footstep... you big monster...
If you venture out tonight...
Lest you trip on your own doorstep...
On a rat... who jumped in flight.
