Pumpkin, Pumpkin on the Ground

Author Unknown

(To the tune of "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star")

Pumpkin pumpkin on the ground

How'd you get so big and round?

Planted as a seed so small

Now you are a great big ball

Pumpkin pumpkin on the ground

Five Little Pumpkins

Adapted by: Terry Kluytmans

Five little pumpkins

Sitting on a gate

The first one said,

"Oh, my, it's half past eight!"

The second one said,

"There are witches in the air!"

The third one said,

"Good folk, beware!"

The fourth one said,

"We'll run and run and run!"

The fifth one said,

"Let's have some fun!"

OOOOOOOH, went the wind

And OUT went the light

And the five little pumpkins

Rolled out of sight

Three Black Cats

Author Unknown

(To the tune of "Three Blind Mice")

Three black cats, three black cats,

In black hats, in black hats.

They all jumped into the Halloween brew.

They teased the ghosts & the goblins too!

Have you ever seen such a Hullabaloo??

On Halloween, On Halloween!

In the Grave Yard

Author Unknown

(To the tune of "Oh, My Darling")

In the grave yard,

In the grave yard,

When the moon begins to shine,

There's a doctor, crazy doctor,

and his monster Frankenstein.

Oh, my monster,

oh, my monster,

oh, my monster Frankenstein,

you are very, very scary, don't come

near me Frankenstein.

Humphrey the Blue-Nosed Pumpkin

Author Unknown

(To the tune of 'Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer")

Humphrey the blue-nosed pumpkin

had a very spooky nose.

And if you ever saw it,

you might even say it shows.

All of the other pumpkins,

used to laugh and call him names.

They never let poor Humphrey

play in any pumpkin games.

Then one foggy Halloween Eve,

the Great Pumpkin said,

"Humphrey, with your nose so blue,

you'll make all the ghosts say BOO!"

Then all the pumpkins loved him,

and they shouted out with glee,

Humphrey, the blue-nosed pumpkin,

You'll go down in history!

The Three Little Kittens' Halloween

By: Lenore Hetrick

Of the three little kittens

Who lost their mittens,

Perhaps you've often heard.

Look now and see!

We are the three!

First, second and third!

Why did we lose our mittens?

Why were we naughty kittens?

We lost our mittens on Hallowe'en,

With all the frightening sights to be seen!

Tell me, what would a kitten

Need with a mitten

When high up in the sky,

We saw a witch,

Blacker than pitch!

How scary! Oh my!

So we just dropped our mittens

And ran like scaredy-kittens!

We lost our mittens on Hallowe'en,

With all the frightening sights to be seen!

And what else could a kitten

Need with a mitten

When creeping up there came,

Goblins and ghosts,

Coming so close!

And calling our names!

Of course we dropped our mittens

And ran like frightened kittens!

We lost our mittens on Hallowe'en,

With all the frightening sights to be seen!
