HALLOWEEN CAROLS



Kids Costumes


SHIVERY YELLS
(Tune: Silver Bells)

We're on sidewalks, we're on porches.
Dressed in costumes to scare.
Through the city we're ringing the doorbells.
Trick or treating, candy eating,
Gooey stuff in our hair,
But the most fun is shrieking out loud;
Shivery yells, shivery yells,
That's the Halloween nitty-gritty,
Moan and groan, leave us alone;
Halloween's just one night a year.


UP IN THE PUMPKIN PATCH
(Tune: Up on the Housetop)

Up in the pumpkin patch,
Witches pause,
Out jumps the Great One,
Hear the applause?!
Down through the rows
With goodies and toys
All for this followers'
Halloween joys!
Haunt! Haunt! Haunt!
Who wouldn't want...
Haunt! Haunt! Haunt!
Who wouldn't want...
To be in the pumpkin patch?
Cheer! Cheer! Cheer!
Waiting for the Great One
And being sincere!


GREAT PUMPKIN IS COMING TO TOWN
(Tune: Santa Claus is Coming to Town)

Oh, you better not shriek,
You better not groan,
You better not howl,
You better not moan,
Great Pumpkin is coming to town!

He's going to find out
From folks that he meets
Who deserves tricks
And who deserves treats;
Great Pumpkin is coming to town.

He'll search in every pumpkin patch,
Haunted houses far and near,
To see if you've been spreading gloom,
Or bringing lots of cheer.

So, you better not shriek,
You better not groan,
You better not howl,
You better not moan,
Great Pumpkin is coming to town!


ONE JACK-O-LANTERN
(Tune: Elephant Song)

One Jack-o-lantern went out to play
upon a pumpkin vine one day,
He had so much spooky fun
He called for another Jack-o-lantern to come

One child stands to start - then chooses 2nd Jack-o-lantern. As each Jack-o-lantern is added children count and tell how many until all are standing in a row - then vine breaks and all fall down!


THE HALLOWEEN PARTY
(Tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb)

Pump-kins have such hap-py grins, hap-py grins, hap-py grins.
Pump-kins have such hap-py grins. It's Hal-low-een at last.
Cats have come with long, black tails, long, black tails, long, black tails.
Cats have come with long, black tails. It's Hal-low-een at last.
Ghosts have come to school to-day, school to-day, school to-day.
Ghosts have come to school to-day. It's Hal-low-een at last.
Witch-es have their witch-es brooms, witch-es brooms, witch-es brooms.
Witch-es have their witch-es brooms. It's Hal-low-een at last.


TRICK OR TREATING
(Tune: Are You Sleeping?)

Trick or treating, trick or treating.
BOO BOO BOO
BOO BOO BOO
Trick or treating, trick or treating.
I scare you I scare you


I'M A LITTLE SPIDER
(Tune: I'm a Little Teapot)

I'm a little spider,
Watch me spin.
If you'll be my dinner,
I'll let you come in.
Then I'll spin my web to hold you tight,
And gobble you up in one big bite!


PUMPKIN SONG
(Tune: Mary Had a Little Lamb)

We are pumpkins big and round, big and round, big and round.
We are pumpkins big and round sitting on the ground.

See our great big shiny eyes, shiny eyes, shiny eyes.
See our great big shiny eyes, looking all around.

See our great big laughing mouth, laughing mouth, laughing mouth.
See our great big laughing mouth, smiling right at you!


THIS OLD GHOST
(Tune: This Old Man)

This old ghost, he played one,
He played peek-a-boo on the run.
With a Boo! Boo! Boo! and a clap, clap, snap!
This old ghost is a friendly chap.

This old ghost, he played two,
He played peek-a-boo in a shoe.
With a Boo! Boo! Boo! and a clap, clap, snap!
This old ghost is a friendly chap.

This old ghost, he played three,
He played peek-a-boo behind a tree.
With a Boo! Boo! Boo! and a clap, clap, snap,
This old ghost is a friendly chap.


GOBLINS IN THE SKY
(Tune: Farmer in the Dell)

1. The goblin in the dark, the goblin in the dark,
Hi ho, Halloween, the goblin in the dark.

2. The goblin takes the witch...

3. The witch takes the bat...

4. The bat takes the ghost....

5. The ghost says, "BOO!"


RIDING WITCHES
(Tune: Yankee Doodle)

A witch went riding on a broom
On a cold October evening;
She met a ghost and a big black cat,
And down her neck they were breathing.
"Jump up on my broom," she said,
"Let's come out of hiding,"
"Jump up on my broom," she said,
"And let's all go a-riding!"


IN THE GRAVEYARD
(Tune: Darling Clementine)

In the graveyard, in the graveyard,
When the moon begins to shine
There's a doctor, crazy doctor
And his monster Frankenstein.
Oh, my monster, oh, my monster,
Oh, my monster Frankenstein,
You are looking very scary,
Sweet old monster Frankenstein.

IT'S OCTOBER
(Tune: She’ll Be Coming ‘Round the Mountain)

It’s October and it’s time to have some fun, yee ha!
It’s October and it’s time to have some fun, yee ha!
Pickin’ apples up so high
For a fresh baked apple pie
It’s October and it’s time to have some fun, yee ha!

Oh, it’s time to head out to the pumpkin patch, yee ha!
Oh, it’s time to head out to the pumpkin patch, yee ha!
To the patch to choose a pumpkin
Dressed up like a country bumpkin
Oh, it’s time to head out to the pumpkin patch, yee ha!

We will all go trick or treatin’ Halloween, yee ha!
We will all go trick or treatin’ Halloween, yee ha!
Saying “Boo!” to those we meet
Getting lots of things to eat
We will all go trick or treatin’ Halloween, yeeha!
