'Twas a long time ago,|longer now than it seems...

in a place that perhaps|you've seen in your dreams.

For the story that you|are about to be told...

took place|in the holiday worlds of old.

Now, you've probably wondered|where holidays come from.

If you haven't,|I'd say it's time you begun!

Boys and girls|of every age

Wouldn't you like to see|something strange

Come with us|and you will see

This our town|of Halloween

This is Halloween|This is Halloween

Pumpkins scream|in the dead of night

This is Halloween|Everybody make a scene

Trick-or-treat till the|neighbor's gonna die of fright

It's our town|Everybody scream

In this town of Halloween

I am the one hiding|under your bed

Teeth ground sharp|and eyes glowing red

I am the one hiding|under your stairs

Fingers like snakes|and spiders in my hair

This is Halloween|This is Halloween

Halloween, Halloween|Halloween, Halloween

In this town we call home

Everyone hail|to the pumpkin song

In this town|Don't we love it now

Everybody's waiting|for the next surprise

'Round that corner, man|Hiding in the trash can

- Something's waiting now|to pounce and how you'll|- Scream

- This is Halloween|- Red and black|- And slimy green

- Aren't you scared|- Well, that's just fine

Say it once, say it twice|Take a chance and roll the dice

Ride with the moon|in the dead of night

Everybody scream|Everybody scream

In our town of Halloween

I am the clown|with a tear-away face

Here in a flash|and gone without a trace

I am the who|when you call who's there

I am the wind blowing|through your hair

I am the shadow|on the moon at night

Filling your dreams|to the brim with fright

This is Halloween|This is Halloween

Halloween, Halloween|Halloween, Halloween

Tender lumplings everywhere

Life's no fun|without a good scare

- That's our job|- But we're not mean

In our town of Halloween

In this town|Don't we love it now

Everyone's waiting|for the next surprise

Skeleton Jack|might catch you in the back

And scream like a banshee|Make you jump out of your skin

This is Halloween|Everybody scream

Won't you please make way|for a very special guy

Our man Jack is king|of the pumpkin patch

Everyone hail|to the Pumpkin King now

This is Halloween|This is Halloween

Halloween, Halloween|Halloween, Halloween

In this town we call home

Everyone hail|to the pumpkin song

- La, la, la, la, la, la|- Halloween, Halloween

- La, la, la, la, la, la|- Halloween, Halloween

- La, la, la, la, la, la|- Halloween, Halloween

La, la, la, la, la, la|Whee

- It's over!|- We did it!

- Wasn't it terrifying?|- What a night!

Great Halloween, everybody.

I believe it was our most horrible yet.|Thank you, everyone.

No! Thanks to you, Jack.

Without your|brilliant leadership--

- Not at all, Mayor.|- You're such a scream, Jack.

- You're a witch's fondest dream.|- You made walls fall, Jack.

Walls fall? You made|the very mountains crack, Jack.

- The deadly nightshade|you slipped me wore off, Sally.|- Let go!

- You're not ready|for so much excitement.|- Yes, I am!

- You're coming with me!|- No, I'm not!

Come back here, you foolish--

Oh! Oh! Oh-oh-oh.

Ooh, Jack, you made|wounds ooze and flesh crawl.

Thank you. Thank you!|Thank you very much!

Hold it. We haven't given out|the prizes yet.

Our first award|goes to the vampires...

for most blood drained|in a single evening.

Our second and|honorable mention...

goes to the fabulous|Dark Lagoon leeches.

Nice work, Bone Daddy.

Yeah, I guess so.|Just like last year...

and the year before that,|and the year before that.

There are few who deny|at what I do I am the best
