lyrics

Waiting in the hall on the ceiling or the wall
is a friend I can't live without.
It stays wide awake while I sleep tight
and if there's smoke it wakes me up tonight.

My smoke detector is a life protector
It knows just what to do.
And if a fire breaks out in my house
it wakes me up I have no doubt.

Once each month I test my detector
I wanna be sure that it works okay
And if I find the battery's low
I put a new one in right away.

When it yells I wake right up
and get down on the floor.
I don't stand I stay under smoke
and crawl my way right out the door.

My smoke detector is a life protector
It knows just what to do.
And if a fire breaks out in my house
it wakes me up I have no doubt.

When the smoke detector beeps
gotta get on the floor
When the smoke detector beeps
gotta get out the door.
