We were there when the prior films said
Both the werewolf and giant were dead.
But, ka-CHING! monsters mash
And they bring monstrous cash
So the pair's unretired, instead.
Poor Talbot would shake off the ill
That caused him to howl and to kill.
The Monster sought sight
But there was a fight
And finally, both had to chill.
