In case you have forgotten,
here are the lyrics to Mose Allison's tune,
recorded in 1970:

Monsters of  the Id
No longer  stay hid
And terrors of the night
Are out in  broad daylight
No need to knock on wood
Don't stop and say a prayer
It won't do any good
They're multiplying everywhere

Creatures of the deep
Are going without sleep
And phantoms of the dark
Have their own place to park
No need to lock the door
They're sprouting through the cracks
They're making room for more
They're deputizing maniacs

Prehistoric ghouls
Are making their own rules
And resurrected Huns
Are passing out the guns
No need to cause a fuss
Don't go and make a scene
They know what's best for us
They're fighting fire with gasoline

Creatures from the swamp
Rewrite their own "Mein Kampf"
Neanderthals amuck
Just trying to make a buck
Goblins and  their hags
Are out there waving flags
When will we be rid of Monsters of The Id
