Lyrics

Ghosts and ghoulies of the night
running, dancing, singing bright.
Leave on your front porch light
so that they can celebrate.
All Hallow’s Eve, All Hallow’s Eve, All Hallow’s Eve, tonight.
Maybe finding candy.
All Hallow’s Eve, All Hallow’s Eve, All Hallow’s Eve, tonight.
Finding joy disguised as brains.

Little ones we see tonight
dressed as bugs and animals.
Larger ones we see as well
dressed as ghouls from Great Below.
All Hallow’s Eve, All Hallow’s Eve, All Hallow’s Eve, tonight.
Maybe finding candy.
All Hallow’s Eve, All Hallow’s Eve, All Hallow’s Eve, tonight.
Finding joy wrapped in a cape.

If you go outside tonight
please beware of children’s light.
You don’t need an undead child
to become a more dead child.
All Hallow’s Eve, All Hallow’s Eve, All Hallow’s Eve, tonight.
They only want candy.
All Hallow’s Eve, All Hallow’s Eve, All Hallow’s Eve, tonight.
Please will you protect their brains.
