Lyrics

[Shadow]
Boys and girls of every age
Wouldn't you like to see something strange?
[Siamese Shadow]
Come with us and you will see
This, our town of Halloween
[Pumpkin Patch Chorus]
This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Pumpkins scream in the dead of night
[Ghosts]
This is Halloween, everybody make a scene
Trick or treat till the neighbors gonna die of fright
It's our town, everybody scream
In this town of Halloween
[Creature Under the Bed]
I am the one hiding under your bed
Teeth ground sharp and eyes glowing red
[Man Under the Stairs]
I am the one hiding under yours stairs
Fingers like snakes and spiders in my hair
[Corpse Chorus]
This is Halloween, this is Halloween
[Vampires]
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
In this town we call home
Everyone hail to the pumpkin song
[Mayor]
In this town, don't we love it now?
Everybody's waiting for the next surprise
[Corpse Chorus]
Round that corner, man hiding in the trash can
Something's waiting no to pounce, and how you'll...
[Harlequin Demon, Werewolf & Melting Man]
Scream! This is Halloween
Red n' black, slimy green
[Werewolf]
Aren't you scared?
[Witches]
Well, that's just fine
Say it once, say it twice
Take a chance and roll the dice
Ride with the moon in the dead of night
[Hanging Tree]
Everybody scream, everybody scream
[Hanged Man]
In our town of Halloween!
[Clown]
I am the clown with the tear-away face
Here in a flash and gone without a trace
[Second Ghoul]
I am the "who" when you call, "Who's there?"
I am the wind blowing through your hair
[Oogie Boogie Shadow]
I am the shadow on the moon at night
Filling your dreams to the brim with fright
[Corpse Chorus]
This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
Halloween! Halloween!
[Child Corpse Trio]
Tender lumplings everywhere
Life's no fun without a good scare
[Parent Corpses]
That's our job, but we're not mean
In our town of Halloween
[Corpse Chorus]
In this town
[Mayor]
Don't we love it now?
[Corpse Chorus]
Skeleton Jack might catch you in the back
And scream like a banshee
Make you jump out of your skin
This is Halloween, everyone scream
Wont' ya please make way for a very special guy
Our man jack is King of the Pumpkin patch
Everyone hail to the Pumpkin King
[Everyone]
This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
[Child Corpse Trio]
In this town we call home
Everyone hail to the pumpkin song
[Everyone]
La la-la la, Halloween! Halloween! [Repeat]
