THE HALLOWEEN SONG
Chester’s roaming in an open patch;
Jack is stepping on his toes;
We’re all waiting for Great Pumpkin to come
And we’re dressed up in goblin clothes.
Everybody knows the goodies that Great Pumpkin brings
Help to make our “spirits” bright.
Pumpkin followers with flashlights aglow
Will keep their watch all through the night.
They know Great Pumpkin’s coming back.
He’ll bring a lot of toys and goodies in his sack.
And all the kids will gather in a batch
When the Great Pumpkin rises out of the patch!
And so I’m offering this wise advice –
“You’re gonna grin from ear to ear
On Halloween night when the Great One returns
If your patch is sincere!”
