[edit] Lyrics

    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 'til 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, 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 the tearaway 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!
    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?
    
    Skeleton Jack might catch you in the back
    And scream like a banshee
    Make you jump out of your skin
    This is Halloween, everyone scream
    Won't ya please make way for a very special guy
    Our man Jack is king of the pumpkin patch
    Everyone hail to the Pumpkin King
    
    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 la la la-la
    La la la la-la
    La la la
