Bert the monster is huge and hairy.
If he wanted to, he could be scary,
But Bert has such a sweet disposition.
Being helpful and kind is his only ambition.
He has long horns and pointy claws,
And could easily snatch you with his paws,
But Bert would never cause anyone danger.
If you meet him once you're no longer a stranger.
Bert walks to town and sees friend after friend.
When he meets them he always has time to spend.
He gives them a hug and asks how they've been.
Then misses them horribly until he sees them again.
