Halloween Songs


My daughter and I made this song up for Halloween.  It’s sung to the tune of Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.

Flutter, flutter, little bat,

How I wonder where you’re at.

Up above the midnight sky,

Peeking at me with yellow eyes.

Flutter, flutter, little bat, 

How I wonder where you’re at.


What a Fright! To the tune of Pop goes the Weasel.

Moans and groans and skeleton bones,

It’s Halloween tonight!

Shh! I fear a ghost is near, 
BOO, what a fright! 
Up the street we’ll trick or treat,
We’ll dance beneath the moonlight.
We’ll beware if there’s a scare, 
BOO what a freight!
Witches, cats and flapping bats, 
Are bootiful tonight.
Never fear if goblins appear,
BOO what a fright!


Black Cat (sung slow – almost spoken)

Black cat, black cat,
What do you think of that?
Slowly slinking in the night (crawling motion with hands),

Eyes that glow with golden light (hold hands up around eyes). 
Purring softly, can’t be seen,
He’ll come out on Halloween (pretend to be holding and petting a cat).

Black Cat, black cat,

What do you think of that? SCAT!
(at scat make hand go from fists to out-stretched fingers.)


The Pumpkin on the Vine (tune of the Farmer in the Dell.)

The pumpkin on the vine,
The pumpkin on the vine.
I picked the one that weighed a ton, and that’s the one that’s mine.
I carved two funny eyes,
A mouth that’s over-sized.
The other gook,
my mother took,
For making pumpkin pie.
Oh, the pumpkin on the vine,
The pumpkin on the vine.
I picked the one that weighed a ton, and that’s the one that’s mine.
