Original video
Don't let it get me,
Don't let it get me, oww
Don't let it get me,
Don't let it get me, oww
Don't let it get me, oww
Don't let it get me, oww

Well, it's Saturday night and I'm still free
And I ain't never gonna be
Eaten by the monster of love
(Don't let it get me)

It's hard to fight it off much more
I can hear it droolin' by the door
Eaten by the monster of love
(Don't let it get me)

It ain't a pretty sight to see the way it leaves 'em
(Don't let it get me)
It chews 'em up and spits out creatures with those goo-gooey eyes
Sick-sickly smiles
It just ain't right

And my father said, "Don't worry, son"
But look at him, he shoulda' run
Eaten by the monster of love

Don't let it get me,
Don't let it get me, oww.
Don't let it get me, oww.
Don't let it get me, oww

Well, it's worse than war, it's worse than death
There ain't too many left who ain't been
Eaten by the monster of love
(Don't let it get me)

Buy a dog and that might help
But sometimes though a dog gets rabid
Eaten by the monster of love
(Don't let it get me)

It ain't a pretty sight to see the way it leaves 'em
(Don't let it get me)
It chews 'em up and spits out creatures with those goo-gooey eyes
Sick-sickly smiles
It just ain't right

Eaten by the monster of love
(Don't let it get me)
Let it huff, let it puff
(Don't let it get me)
Eaten by the monster of love
(Don't let it get me)
I hate to gripe
But I just ain't the type

Don't let it get me,
Don't let it get me, oww
Don't let it get me,
Don't let it get me, oww
Don't let it get me,
Don't let it get me, oww.
Don't let it get me,
Don't let it get me, oww.

Well, I know some really good good people
Overcome and piece by piece they were
Eaten by the monster of love
(Don't let it get me)

Sometimes it takes a nip at me
But I'm too quick to ever be
Eaten by the monster of love

Don't let it get me,
Don't let it get me, oww.
Don't let it get me, oww.
Don't let it get me, oww.
Eaten by the monster of love
(Don't let it get me)
Eaten by the monster of love
(Don't let it get me)
Eaten by the monster of love
(Don't let it get me...)
