Halloween Songs


My kids love this bat song. We even had to sing it for graduation! Tune: Frere Jacques

Bats are sleeping Bats are sleeping
Upside down, upside down
Waiting for the night to come
Waiting for the night to come
Then they fly around Then they fly around 

*Great transition song for walking down the hallway – the kids flap their arms like they are flying.


Three Little Ghosts

Three little ghosts on Halloween night; saw a witch and freaked in freight.
The witch just laughed and shouted BOO.
One ghost ran home and then there were two.
Two little ghost who shiver and shook, with every single step they took;
When the door opened wide “A scary goblin stood inside”
One ghost said to the other “I’m going home and stay with my mother.”
One little ghost can’t have much fun, so he ran home , then there were none.


A Pumpkin is a Pumpkin 

A Pumpkin is a pumpkin
A Pumpkin is a pumpkin
A Pumpkin is a pumpkin and not a white ghost. Whooooooooo! 

A Pumpkin is a pumpkin
A Pumpkin is a pumpkin
A Pumpkin is a pumpkin and not a scary monster. Roarrrrr! 

A Pumpkin is a pumpkin
A Pumpkin is a pumpkin
A Pumpkin is a pumpkin and not a black cat. Meow!!!!! 

A Pumpkin is a pumpkin
A Pumpkin is a pumpkin
A Pumpkin is a pumpkin and not a cackling witch. Hee, hee, hee, hee, hee. 

Go back and forth like a bell while singing and make the noises scary. The children learn this one fast and love it!


My favorite Halloween song is “Looking for Dracula” by Charlotte Diamond. I found some old capes and binoculars at a garage sale. I also buy the candy wax fangs at the dollar store. The children love it so much they beg me to bring the CD in the van when we go places.
