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
Monster Under the Bed:
I am the one hiding under your bed
Teeth ground sharp and eyes glowing red
Monster Under the Stairs:
I am the one hiding under your 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 now 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 Skeleton Men:
In our town of Halloween!
Clown:
I am the clown with the tear-away face
Here in a flash and gone without a trace
Invisible ghost:
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:
Everyone's waiting for the next surprise
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
Won't ya please make way for a very special guy
Our man Jack is King of the Pumpkin patch
Everyone hail to the Pumpkin King now
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]
