    Do You Know It’s Halloween?
    Tune: “The muffin Man” Carolyn Arey

    Oh, do you know it’s Halloween,
    Halloween, Halloween,
    Oh, do you know it’s Halloween,
    This October Day.

    Ghosts and Goblins are at play,
    Are at play, are at play,
    Ghosts and goblins are play
    This October day.

    Halloween
    Tune: This Old Man Judith Taylor Burtchet

    Halloween, Halloween,
    It’s a very special time,
    With Ghosts and goblins
    All around,
    Lots of candy to be found.

    Halloween, Halloween,
    It’s a very special time.
    There’s a witch on her broom,
    She’s flying through the air.
    I’ll pretend it’s me up there.

    Pumpkin Song
    Tune: I’m a Little Teapot Nancy and Brian Biddinger

    I’m a little pumpkin,
    Orange and round
    Here is my stem,
    There is the ground.
    When I get all cut up,
    Don’t you shout!
    Just open my up
    And scoop me out!

    I’m a Little Spider
    Tune: I’m a little Teapot Sue Brown

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

    Three Little Witches
    Tune: One Little, Two Little

    One little, two little, three little witches
    Flying over haystacks
    Flying over ditches
    Sliding down moonbeams
    Without any hitches
    High Ho Halloween’s here!

    Boo!
    Tune: Pop goes the weasel

    Sometimes I like to walk in the dark
    I like to shout and scream
    I sneak behind somebody I know
    BOO! It’s Halloween.

    Baby Bat

    The baby bat
    Screamed out in fright
    “Turn on the dark…
    I’m afraid of the light!”

    Five Little Pumpkins:

    Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate
    The first one said, “My it’s getting late”
    The second one said, “There are witches in the air”
    The third one said, “But we don’t care”
    The fourth one said, “Let’s run and run and run”
    The fifth one said, “Isn’t Halloween fun?”
    Then ooooh went the wind
    And OUT went the lights
    And the five little pumpkins rolled quickly out of sight!

    Bats are Sleeping
    Tune: Are You sleeping
    Bats are sleeping, bats are sleeping
    Upside down, Upside down.
    Sleeping in the morning sun.
    Waiting for the night to come.
    Then they'll fly all around.
    Then they'll fly all around.

    A Pumpkin is a Pumpkin
    A Pumpkin is a pumpkin
    A Pumpkin, a pumpkin
    A Pumpkin is a pumpkin and not a white ghost. Whooooooooo!
    not a scary monster. Roarrrrr!
    not a black cat. Meow!!!!!
    not a cackling witch. Hee, hee, hee, hee, hee.


    There was an Old Lady
    There was an old lady in a pointed hat (Use your hands to make pointed hat over head)
    She came to my door with a rap-tap-tap (pretend to knock on door)
    I opened up the door to see who was there (pretend to open door)
    She jumped on her broom and flew through the air. (use hand to fly into the sky)

    WE THREE GHOSTS
    Tune: We three kings of orient are
    We three ghosts of Halloween are
    Scaring kids who wander too far.
    Trick or treating, candy eating,
    Beware the Halloween Star.
    Oh......Oh......... Star of darkness, star of fright.
    Star of every gruesome sight.
    West winds howling, cats a-yowling,
    Let's play some tricks tonight!

    If You're A Ghost and You Know It Tune: If You're Happy and you know it
    If you're a ghost and you know it,
    Just say Boo
    If you're a ghost and you know it,
    Just Say BOO
    If you're a ghost and you know it and you really want to show it...
    If you're a ghost and you know it just say BOO

    Additional Verses:
    Black cat..meow
    Skeleton…wiggle your bones
    Bat…Flap wings
    Witch ..cackle
    Monster…roar

    What is he's in the closet?
    Better close it.
    Slam, slam,slam.

    What if he's behind the curtains?
    Better open them.
    Swish,swish, swish.

    What if he's in the hallway?
    Better tiptoe down it.
    Tiptoe,tiptoe.

    What if he's in the garage?
    Better stomp through it.
    Stomp,stomp, stomp.

    Aahh! It's a monster!
    What's that you said?
    You're big, but you're friendly, and you want to go to bed?

    Now we're not afraid of monsters, so..
    Stomp through the garage,
    Walk through the hallway,
    Close the curtains,
    Open the closet,
    Jump into bed,
    And turn out the lights!. Click!

    IGGA BIGGA

    If in the dark you're frightened,
    Here's all you have to do...
    Say "Igga bigga dinka danka doo."

    These words give you protection
    From ghosts and witches too...
    Say "Igga bigga bunka, dinka danka doo."

    So if at night a monster whispers,
    "I'll get you!",
    YELL "Iggga bigga, hunka bunka, dinka danka doo!"

    Can I assume you already have a copy of The Monster Mash? How about the Adams Family Theme song-- they could clap instead of snapping fingers since that's probably a skill they don't have. I fyou get really creative you can change the words.

    Humphrey the Blue-Nosed Pumpkin
    (To the tune of Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer)



    You know pumpkins are orange and grow on a vine,
    Baked in a pie, they taste mighty fine,
    But have you heard,
    Of a pumpkin quite absurd as...?

    Humphrey the Blue-Nosed Pumpkin
    Had a very obvious nose.
    And if you ever saw it,
    You might even say it shows.

    All of the other pumpkins,
    Used to laugh and call him names.
    They never let poor Humphrey
    Play in any pumpkin games.

    Then one foggy Hallow's Eve,
    The Great Pumpkin did say,
    "Humphrey, with your nose so blue,
    You'll make all the ghosts say BOO!"

    Then all the pumpkins loved him,
    And they shouted out with glee,
    "Humphrey, the Blue-Nosed Pumpkin,
    You'll go down in history!"

    Sorry to resurrect this thread, but what is that Halloween song that has the tune, "Ooooooh!" at the end of each line?? I know I'm not giving too many clues but at the end the song says, "She opened the door, and BOOOOO!!!"
    I used to sing it in elementary school and haven't heard it since. Can someone please help me. I used to love to sing it and I would love to teach my kids. Thanks.:p

    Another line I just remembered is, "She went in the closet to get a broom, Oooooooh!!!"
    "She opened the door, and BOOOOOO!!!"
    That's the last line, I'm sure, but I cant remember everything else.

    Yes, you're right!! I just found out from Kinderkids on a diff. thread. But thanks. I sure wish I had the song on cd to play for my kids, but I guess it's more scary when you sing it slowly, with the lights off. He he!!!

    I just ordered a tape and book with 50 singable songs from the Scholastic October Firefly. It is great. It has "Skin and Bones" on it. I think you can still order from October.
