The Clean Room Song
Written for and sung to my two young boys for purposes of encouragement.

In your room under your bed
Lives a mean red fox
Who feet first clings
To the mattress springs
And lives on dirty sox.
He likes to eat fuzz balls and things
That are not put away
Coats and toys
And things in disarray
The more he eats the bigger he grows
If he gets to big, he'll bite off your toes
And your fingers too, and even your head
If you let them dangle over the bed..
His favorite snack is little boy's slacks
Thrown on a heap on the floor
He loves to chew on discarded shoes
And feeding him makes him want more
So clean your room and pick up your clothes
And starve the mean fox dead
So when you sleep, you can let your feet
Hang over the foot of the bed.
So that you can keep your right hand
So that your head will not be fed
To the fox your blood makes red
Living under your bed.
