There are monsters in my maths book, there are monsters in the yard. There are monsters in all the classrooms, monsters make school hard. I try to wish the monsters away, but they’re too hard to scare. “Wherever I am, whatever I’m doing, the monsters are always there.” The monsters are with me always, they’re around me every day. But with a friend by your side you can scare any monster away.
