I must offer to you a confession
I like movies that give me a fright!
If the subject is horror,
I've got to see more
Or I won't be contented all night!

You may call it my ghoulish obsession;
It's a subject on which I get chatty.
But the worst one, it seems,
Haunting all of my dreams,
Was the cockroach that ate Cincinnati!

I've seen ghouls, and hobgoblins, and witches,
And some moth-eaten wearwolves with fangs.
There were creatures that chattered,
And others that clattered,
And Japanese monsters with bangs!

Frankenstein gives me the shakes.
And Count Dracula's driving me batty.
But they're not on a par
With the worst one by far
The cockroach that ate Cincinnati!

Oh, he must've needed a seltzer;
It's amazing how much he got down.
For lunch he'd just chew
Up suburb or two
And for dinner he ate the whole town!

Willard just sent me out laughing,
I thought Ben looked a little bit ratty.
But they're not half as bad
As the worst scare I've had:
The cockroach that ate Cincinnati!

Oh, my heart nearly stopped;
It will never be topped:
The cockroach that ate Cincinnati!


Ole? That's dumb.
