Monster Under My Stairs

There’s a monster living under my stairs
How do I know?  I’ve heard him there
While trying to be as quiet as a mouse
He’ll sneeze and shake the entire house
He’s big, he’s hairy
He’s very scary
One step, two steps, three steps, four
Did the monster hear me open the door?
Five steps, six steps, then onto seven
Will I make it down to eleven?
Holding my breath all the way down
Hoping the monster has gone and left town
If you dare go down my basement stairs
Watch out for the monster
He may be there
