Big black cats
Vampire bats
Ghosts and goblins out tonight
Causing quite a fright

Painted faces, what a scene
Door to door

For something sweet to eat

Halloween, Halloween
Celebrating Halloween
Jack-o’-lanterns all aglow
So the ancient stories go

Halloween, Halloween
Celtics started Halloween
They celebrated harvest time
With gifts of food and wine

Candles glow
Spirits go
Bringing luck and fortune too
This is what they knew

Halloween, Halloween
Now they call it Halloween
Skulls and bones
Create the scene
Very scary Halloween

Halloween, Halloween
Let’s have fun on Halloween
Witches fly
And children scream
Tonight on Halloween

Witches fly
And children scream
Tonight on Halloween!
