dem bones

Let's scare up some skinny Halloween fun!

'cut to the bone II'
by Peter Callesen

O Skeletons!
sung to the tune of 'O Tannenbaum'

O skeletons! O skeletons!
Rattle down my hallway.
O skeletons! O skeletons!
Rattle in my attic.
Let them know, the day is here,
When your spirit will appear.
O skeletons! O skeletons!
Rattle through your graveyard!

Why are people afraid of skeletons?
They are just silly people has-beens!!

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

"Hobgoblins know the proper way to dance:
Arms akimbo, loopy legs askew,
Leaping into darkness with delight,
Lusting for the ecstasy of fright,
Open to the charms of horrors new..."

Lock your doors...
...and turn out the lights,
Or ghosts and goblins... 
...will spook you with fright!
Jump in bed...
....then pull the covers up tight,
Close your eyes...
...until the morning light.

Skeleton Talk by Shirley T.

One skeleton said to the other,
"I have a bone to pick with you!"
And the old one said, "Not now.
My joints go out more than I do!"
...and they laughed humerously.

Shivery Yells
sung to the tune of Silver Bells

We're on sidewalks,
We're on porches,
Dressed in costumes to scare.

Through the city
we're ringing your doorbells.
Trick or treating, candy eating,
Gooey stuff in our hair,
But the most fun is shrieking out loud,

"Shivery yells! {shivery yells}
Shivery yells!" {shivery yells}
That's the Halloween nitty gritty.

"Moan and Groan! {moan and groan}
Leave us alone! {leave us alone}
Halloween's just once a year!"
