There's a starfish hidden under my bed,
Starfish (clap, clap) starfish (clap, clap)
Someone took the star, what's left instead?
Someone took the star, what's left instead?
It's just a fish (clap, clap), a fish (clap, clap).

There's a cowboy hidden under my bed
Cowboy (clap, clap) cowboy (clap, clap)
Someone took the boy, what's left instead?
Someone took the boy, what's left instead?
It's just a cow, (clap, clap) a cow.

There's a toothbrush hidden under my bed...
Someone took the tooth, what's left instead?
Someone took the tooth, what's left instead?
It's just a brush, (clap, clap) a brush.

There's a football hidden under my bed...
Someone took the foot, what's left instead?
Someone took the foot, what's left instead?
It's just a ball, (clap, clap) a ball.

There's a doorbell hidden under my bed...
Someone took the door, what's left instead?
Someone took the door, what's left instead?
It's just a _______, a _______.
