Halloween Songs


Jack-O-Lantern

I am a pumpkin, big and round (use arms to show size of pumpkin)
Once upon the time I grew on the ground (point to the ground)
Now I have a mouth, two eyes, a nose (point to features on your face)
What are they there for, do you suppose? (Right forefinger to forehead,
thinking gesture)
When I have a candle inside (hold up right forefinger)
Shining bright
I’ll be a Jack-O-Lantern on Halloween night! (Thumbs in armpits-bragging
gesture)


Late On A Dark And Stormy Night

Late on a dark and stormy night
Three witches stirred with all their might
Two little ghosts said, “How do you do?”
The Wizard went tiptoe, tiptoe
Booooo!


Old Roger Is Dead

Old Roger is dead and he lies in his grave
Lies in his grave, lies in his grave
Old Roger is dead and he lies in his grave
Heigh ho, lies in his grave

They planted an Apple tree over his hand
The apples grew ripe and they all tumbled down
There came and old woman a-picking them up
Old Roger got up and he gave her a knock
This made the old woman go hippity-hop


On A Dark, Dark Night

On a dark, dark, night
In a dark, dark wood
In a dark, dark house
In a dark, dark room
In a dark, dark cupboard
On a dark, dark shelf
In a dark, dark box
There was a GHOST!


Poor Willy The Witch

Poor Willy The Witch
Not too rich
Had a big itch
Fell in a ditch
Poor Willy The Witch
