Lyrics

When you are out at the movies
and you think you're finally safe
the monster on the screen semmed very groovy
but you dont know what fate awaits..

It's the Monster that ate Columbus Mississippi
The Monster that ate the world
The monster that ate Columbus Mississippi,
every boy and girl
Came out of a government laboratory
Came out of a tube
The Monster that ate Columbus Mississippi
Now it's after you.

So you are walking down a dark street
Looking for a safe place to hide
Watching the thing off in the distance,
but it still gets to you tonight


Was the Monster that ate Columbus Mississippi
The Monster that ate the world
The monster that ate Columbus Mississippi,
every boy and girl
Came out of a government laboratory
Came out of a tube
The Monster that ate Columbus Mississippi
Now it's after you.

So you think that it is finally over
Just because our song is finally done
Just dont look over your shoulder
Or else you'll see it's time to run.

Was the Monster that ate Columbus Mississippi
The Monster that ate the world
The monster that ate Columbus Mississippi,
every boy and girl
Came out of a government laboratory
Came out of a tube
The Monster that ate Columbus Mississippi
Now it's after you.
