Halloween and The Who have a lot in common. Thanks to The Who bassist, John Entwhistle, one of the biggest Halloween songs of all time is "Boris The Spider" by The Who.

Step into my parlor and learn the history of Boris the Spider from its inception to its demise, with song lyrics, music, pictures, and more.

Boris The Spider Song Lyrics

Written by John Entwistle

The Who - Boris The Spider lyrics

Look, he's crawling up my wall

Black and hairy, very small

Now he's up above my head

Hanging by a little thread

Boris the spider

Boris the spider

Now he's dropped on to the floor

Heading for the bedroom door

Maybe he's as scared as me

Where's he gone now, I can't see

Boris the spider

Boris the spider

Creepy, crawly

Creepy, crawly

Creepy, creepy, crawly, crawly

Creepy, creepy, crawly, crawly

Creepy, creepy, crawly, crawly

Creepy, creepy, crawly, crawly

There he is wrapped in a ball

Doesn't seem to move at all

Perhaps he's dead, I'll just make sure

Pick this book up off the floor

Boris the spider

Boris the spider

Creepy, crawly

Creepy, crawly

Creepy, creepy, crawly, crawly

Creepy, creepy, crawly, crawly

Creepy, creepy, crawly, crawly

Creepy, creepy, crawly, crawly

He's come to a sticky end

Don't think he will ever mend

Never more will he crawl 'round

He's embedded in the ground

Boris the spider

Boris the spider

      The Who isn't the Who without the "Ox" and Keith Moon. Great song by a GREAT musician!
