Watch out!
The monsters are out!
If you’re all alone
Give your friends a shout
The ghosts and the spooks
Coming out of the nooks
As your doorbell rings
Can you hear them sing?

Hello it’s Halloween! 

The air is cool
And the moon is full
Turn on the light
Before the vampires bite!
The witches are cooking
The zombies are looking
And your doorbell rings
Can you hear them sing?

Hello it’s Halloween! 

Watch out!
The monsters are out!
If you’re all alone
Give your friends a shout
The vampire’s flying
And the werewolf hunting
As your doorbell rings
Can you hear them sing?

Hello it’s Halloween!
