Ghouls and ghosts and naughty children

Ghouls and ghosts and naughty children
Prowling door to door
Spreading gloom and doom and terror
Wanting more and more

    Halloween has come to getcha
    Halloween is here
    Ghouls and ghosts and naughty children
    More and more each year

Sweets and candies, death and mayhem
All of them the same
Some are real and some imagined
All though play the game

    Halloween has come to getcha
    Halloween is here
    Ghouls and ghosts and naughty children
    More and more each year

Horseback rider, with his head off
Johnny and his Dad
Claiming gifts and maiming victims
All of them as bad

    Halloween has come to getcha
    Halloween is here
    Ghouls and ghosts and naughty children
    More and more each year

Evil cackles from a broomstick
Apple flavour – “YUCK”
Great Grandma and Great Aunt Mabel
All want better luck

    Halloween has come to getcha
    Halloween is here
    Ghouls and ghosts and naughty children
    More and more each year

Sweet-shop owners always love it
Undertakers too
Dentists will be very busy
Who’ll dig the grave for you?

    Halloween has come to getcha
    Halloween is here
    Ghouls and ghosts and naughty children
    More and more each year

Midnight comes and midnight passes
All are off to bed
No more ghouls and ghosts and children
All well fed

              OR DEAD!!!!!!!

Author notes

I normally don’t make the chorus and verses to the same tune, but they insisted, sorry.
