Boo, Cackle, Trick or Treat (Sue Schnitzer)
  Boo, cackle, trick or treat
  It's Halloween Night on Trick or Treat Street
  Boo, cackle, trick or treat
  Please give us something good to eat.

Costumes of all kinds, silly and scary
Kids with bags full of Halloween candy
Children every where until about nine
Then the big black cat meows, "Party Time".

  Boo, cackle, trick or treat
  It’s Halloween night on Trick or Treat Street
  Boo, cackle, trick or treat
  Please give us something good to eat.

It’s an autumn harvest for the ghosts and bats
The witches are wearing their best black hats
The goblins and ghouls are dancing in the dark
While mummies eat the pumpkin pie.

  Boo, cackle, trick or treat
  It’s Halloween night on Trick or Treat Street
  Boo, cackle, trick or treat
  Please give us something good to eat.

The clock strikes midnight and it’s quiet again
Children are asleep and the party ends
The candy and the goodies are safely put away
Ready to be eaten on another day.

  Boo, cackle, trick or treat
  It’s Halloween night on Trick or Treat Street
  Boo, cackle, trick or treat
  Please give us something good to eat.
  It’s Halloween night on Trick or Treat Street

Halloween Party (Sue Schnitzer)
  Halloween party’s at my house
  So, wear a costume and scream real loud
  We’ll play lots of games and eat lots of treats
  Tell scary stories and dance to the beat
  Of Count Dracula’s monster band

We’ll do the zombie walk, Hold your arms straight out
And do the ghost float, Make a lonesome ghost sound
Spin like mummies, Twirl and bump around the room.
And howl like a werewolf at the moon.

  Halloween party’s at my house
  So, wear a costume and scream real loud
  We’ll play lots of games and eat lots of treats
  Tell scary stories and dance to the beat
  Of Count Dracula’s monster band

We’ll walk like ghouls
Rattle your chains as you drag your feet
Fly like a witch
Cackle as you zoom
And flutter like an owl
Hoot, hoot.
Prance like a goblin, hee, hee, hee.

  Halloween party’s at my house
  So, wear a costume and scream real loud
  We’ll play lots of games and eat lots of treats
  Tell scary stories and dance to the beat
  Of Count Dracula’s monster band

We’ll bob for apples and eat candy corn
We’ll play pin the hat on the witch
We’ll make a haunted house and string popcorn
Grab your goodies and all go home.

  Halloween party’s at my house
  So, wear a costume and scream real loud
  We’ll play lots of games and eat lots of treats
  Tell scary stories and dance to the beat
  Of Count Dracula’s monster band

Scary Skeleton
I am a scary skeleton
I shake and rattle my bones.
I frighten all the girls and boys
When I peak into their homes,

I am a scary old witch.
I fly upon my broom.
And I frighten all the girls and boys
When I peak into their rooms.

I am a scary old ghost,
I fly up in the sky.
I frighten all the girls and boys
As they go running by.
Ooooooh…..BOO!

Five Little Pumpkins
Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate (hold up fingers for pumpkins)
The first once said "Oh my, It's getting late."
The second one said, "There are witches in the air."
The third once said, "But we don't care."
The fourth once said "Let's run and run and run".
The fifth one said, "I'm ready for some fun."
Woooosh went the wind and out when the lights [clap hands]
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight. [roll hands]
Woooosh went the wind and out when the lights [clap hands]
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight. [roll hands]

Black Cats, Spiders, and Bats Blues (Sue Schnitzer)
When people see us they get the creeps,
They think we’re scary and gross and mean.
So, on Halloween we’re in lots of books,
And on masks and napkins and costumes, of course.
But, we’re not as bad as people like to think,
We’re just trying to get by, if you know what I mean.
We’re singing the black cats, spiders, and bats blues.

You see a black cat arching her back
You make sure that you don’t cross her path.
You see a spider climbing in the air
And you run away or hide behind a chair.
You hope you never see a bat
Except in a zoo and that’s as close as you get.
We’re singing the black cats, spiders, and bats blues.

[talking blues]
Well, I don’t know why we all have such a bad rap
Black cats are loyal just like other cats.
And spiders use their spinerettes and legs
To make thread and spin beautiful webs.
And bats are small and really smart
They use echoes and smell to find things in the dark.

Black cats can be really nice,
They make great pets and purr just right.
Spiders eat lots of insects and bugs,
You know those bugs you don’t like to find on your rug.
And bats are just flying mice,
Some eat fruit and that’s kind of nice.
We’re singing the black cats, spiders, and bats,
Black cats, spiders, and bats,
Black cats, spiders, and bats,
Black cats, spiders, and bats,
Black cats, spiders, and bats,
Oh, please, won’t you love us, please.

It's Fall (Sue Schnitzer)
When the leaves change color and fall off the trees
And it gets colder and colder, and there’s a really cool breeze,
It’s fall.

When there are witches, ghosts and goblins, and werewolves and bats,
King-sized candy bars and stuff in your sacks,
It’s fall.

  Zoom, zoom on the witch’s broom
  There’s a black cat on the back.
  Leaves swish down and blow in the air
  And land in everyone’s hair.
  It’s fall.

When the grass changes color and the flower petals fall,
Seeds blow away and we sometimes play ball,
It’s fall.

We eat lots of turkey, stuffing, and pie,
We think about the pilgrims and lay down and sigh
It’s fall.

  Zoom, zoom on the witch’s broom
  There’s a black cat on the back
  Leaves swish down and blow in the air
  And land in everyone’s hair.
  It’s fall.

Oh, the Bats
Oh the bats [squeak, squeak] sing a squeaky song.
And they sing [squeak, squeak] nearly all night long.
Catching bugs [squeak, squeak] ‘till the break of dawn.
Then the bats [squeak, squeak] fly away [let balloon go].

Your Bones (traditional)
Well, your head bone’s connected to your neck bone,
And your neck bone’s connected to the shoulder bone,
And your shoulder bone’s connected to the back bone
So you can stand up and walk all around
Your bones, your bones, your strong bones
Your bones, your bones, your strong bones
Your bones, your bones, your strong bones
Help you stand up and walk all around

Well, Your backbone’s connected to the hip bone
The hipbone’s connected to the thigh bone
The thighbone’s connected to the knee bone
So you can stand up and walk all around
Your bones, your bones, your strong bones
Your bones, your bones, your strong bones
Your bones, your bones, your strong bones
Help you stand up and walk all around

Well, your knee bone’s connected to the calf bone
And your calf bone connected to the calf bone
And your anklebone’s connected to the foot bone
Stand up and walk all around
Your bones, your bones, your strong bones
Your bones, your bones, your strong bones
Your bones, your bones, your strong bpmes
Help you stand up and walk all around.

All Skin and Bones
There was an old woman all skin and bones.
Ooooo.
She lived down by the old graveyard.
Ooooo.
One night she thought she’d take a walk.
Ooooo.
She walked down by the old graveyard.
Ooooo.
She saw the bones lying around.
Ooooo.
She went to the closet to get a broom.
Ooooo.
She slowly turned the closet key.
Ooooo.
She opened the door and
Boo!

Ten little, nine little, eight little pumpkins,
Seven little, six little, five little pumpkins,
Four little, three little, two little pumpkins,
One pumpkin out on Halloween.

Seven little, six little, five trick or treaters,

Ten little, nine little, eight little devils,
Seven little, six little, five little devils,
Four little, three little, two little devils,
One little devil at your door.

Oh, no!

I Need a Pumpkin (Sue Schnitzer)
I need a pumpkin for Halloween.
I need some pumpkins, at least two or three.
So I can have a pumpkin family
And make jack-o-lanterns for Halloween.

First we cut the top off, then scoop out all the seeds,
Then we draw the faces for our pumpkin family.
We draw the eyes, a triangle for the nose
To make Jack-o-lanterns for Halloween

Do you want a smile? Do you want a frown?
Do you want a circle mouth so your pumpkin says, “Boo!”?
We carefully help mom or dad carve
Our jack-o-lanterns for Halloween.

I need a pumpkin for Halloween.
I need some pumpkins, at least two or three.
So I can have a pumpkin family
And make jack-o-lanterns for Halloween.

This one is happy. This one looks sad.
This one looks spooky. This one looks mad.
With a candle inside, shining we see
Our jack-o-lanterns on Halloween.

Ghost of John
Have you seen the ghost of John?
Long white bones and the rest all gone,
Ooh, ooh, wouldn't it be chilly with no skin on?
