Grue

Yes, I’ll admit, I was afraid of him
I was just a boy
When the sun would sink, he would drink and make that scary noise
I could never catch a wink of sleep till the dawn when
His head would hit the pillow and his whiskey was gone

Oh brothers, I did run
Tried to catch the falling sun
Grue

Oh brothers, I did run
To keep us protected from
Grue

All through the day, he would play the frail and friendly man
Always on cue so careful not to raise a hand
Sometime after sundown when the curtain had fallen
Behind the scenes the drama was just getting started

Oh brothers, we did run
Tried to catch the falling sun

Oh mother we did run
Tried to catch the falling sun
Grue

Mother, mother we did run
To keep you from the
Grue

Grue, Grue
What a sad, old, fool
Gave nothing and
Took more than he used
