Strangled in the Night (poem)

Updated on April 25, 2015

Sung to “Strangers in the Night”

-

Strangled in the night

By some intruder

Plung’ed with a knife

What could be ruder

To have my life end

By one I never knew

-

Something in his hand

Was sharp and scary

Couldn’t see his eyes

He was too hairy

Something in my mind

Told me that I was through

-

Strangled in the night

I was so frightened to be

Strangled in the night

He had a hold of me

And suddenly let go

Little did he know

Karate was my favorite pastime

He got his and finally I’m

-

Free to roam the streets

To go out walking

Look around and see

That he’s not stalking

No more thoughts of be’ng

Strangled in the night

Night

Night

Night

      Martin, delightful. Well, as delightful as being strangled in the night can be, I suppose. Nice to see you, Martin.
