walk down the street that you used to know 
and then to the park where you don't go
the marks that you make on your little path that lead 
hooooooooome straight to your doooooooooor

so you go out one darkened day 
along the creek where you used to play
but not anymore they're telling you to go 
hooooooooome straight to your bed they go
roooooooound straight to your bed

A                         B7/11
the boogey man is going to get you
A                          B7/11
he'll tie you up when you don't want to
B7/11
oh no oh no

E          A5     F#m5        B5
think it over what's in your head
you know just why it's in your head
it's over it's all in your head 
that it's over it's all in your head

the night is down and you're walking home 
you are safe although you're alone
i wouldn't know what you see 
i may have ended this game for you

now in the dusk of your own time 
you're hurting people that are floating round you
i couldn't say what you need 
you've got it already in your head 
you better go now straight to bed

the boogey man is going to get you
he'll tie you up when you don't want to
oh no oh no

think it over what's in your head
you know just why it's in your head
it's over it's all in your head 
that it's over it's all in your head

and you would never know 
just when to leave this scene
maybe it's time yeah time to go
