Under a bridge, in the forest deep

Lives a creature, in his earthen keep

When sun shines bright upon the day

It’s a promise that he’ll stay away

For if he looks, it has been known

He will surely turn to stone

But when moonlight shows about this place

That is when you’ll see his face

A mythical creature, you cannot cajole

For he is the forest’s menacing troll
