On the last October day,
When the sun has gone away,
The monsters all come out to play
And take over the night.
Vampire bats and witches fly
Through the moonlit autumn sky.
Hear them laugh while passing by
To fill the air with fright.
Zombies rise up from the ground.
Ghosts float by without a sound.
What fun it is to look around
And see costumes galore.
Children wanting something sweet
Get all the candy they could eat
Just for shouting “Trick or Treat!”
Outside a stranger’s door.
Light a pumpkin with a face
To decorate the haunted place
Where monsters gather to embrace
The year’s most frightening scene.
So step into our scary dreams
Where nothing is quite what it seems,
And all around, you hear the screams
Of “Happy Halloween!”
