lyrics

Ninja
212 BPM

[Verse 1]
Ninjas are hiding
Creeping everywhere
Their time they are biding
Before they get you in your chair…

[Chorus]
There's a Ninja in the basement,
There''s a Ninja in the tree,
There's a Ninja behind the hedge,
and he's comin' (he's comin') for me

[Verse 2]
Perched upon a precipice
Throwing star in hand
You really cannot mess with this
Ninja, understand?
(Knife-hand! Sidekick!!)

[Chorus]
There's a Ninja in the basement,
There''s a Ninja in the tree,
There's a Ninja behind the hedge,
and he's comin' (he's comin') for me.

(That's a lot of jobs…That's a lot of jobs…That's a lot of jobs…That's a lot of jobs…)

Invisibility,
and Elemental Control!
I wanna be a Ninja!
(you're a ninja you're a you're a you're a ninja…
you're a ninja you're a you're a you're a ninja…)

Secret by design, shrouded in fear,
Two weapons they liked, two weapons I hear…

[Two Weapons]
Two weapons…Two weapons…Two weapons…Two weapons…
Two weapons…Two weapons…Two weapons…
(they were:)

KATANA! and a THROWING STAR!

Uncle Monsterface Brooklyn, New York

Uncle Monsterface is fun, high energy nerd rock that stares you down from across the bar and dares you not to have a good time with them. They make songs about ninjas, Nintendo, D&D, lobsters, and life. Their live shows often include giant dancing monsters, notably one that shares the name with the band, and is also a sock puppet. Listen up and get down. ... more
