Monster In The Creek (Giant Squid)

Old sea captain warned us today When the lord surely looked the other way Something in the stream outside of town Reached up and dragged my poor child down [Chorus] Has the devil caused this hellish heat To lure our children down to the creek Eleven miles from the nearest waves What manner of beast has swam in from the bay Young man dive in with hopes to free My boy's body from the jaws of the thing At the deepest part of the swimming hole Refuses to give back the life it stole [Chorus] Bring your guns and dynamite The monster in the creek dies tonight Fire at whatever moves within the muddy waters of Matawan Life fuses tossed deep We'll blow the demon right out of the stream
