The Witch Which Is

Updated on May 16, 2010

The Witch Which Is

The witch which is in the house next door

Is nicer than the man before

She dresses like it’s Halloween

In the best costumes you’ve ever seen

The old man who was living there

Was mean and gave us all a scare

But he moved out and she moved in

It’s better than it’s ever been

The witch which lives with her black cat

Has on her porch a ‘Welcome’ mat

All us kids took that to say

That we could visit every day

So after school us kids would wait

Out front her house, right by her gate

And one by one she’d call us in

We’d come out with a great big grin

The witch which is in the house next door

Had fixed her house in to a store

In every room – on every shelf

Was toys and candy – we could help our self!

The only catch for us would be

To not take 1 – take 2 or 3!

We told our Mom that we had seen

A witch that had a face of green

We told our Dad what fun we had

And he said “This is very bad!”

He said “A witch in the neighborhood

Is never ever any good.”

All the witches he had seen

Thinks every day is Halloween

Every day she lets kids eat

Candy like it’s Trick or Treat

So pretty soon her and her cat

Watch the children getting fat

The witch which is so nice to you

Will plump you up for her ‘Kid Stew’

Free toys and candy to entice

Is Never Ever Very Nice!

The witch which lives next door to me

I thought was nice as she could be

But Daddy said that witch is bad

And I was very, very sad

We can’t go visit any more

The friendly witch that lives next door

It was Halloween there every day

When all us kids stopped by to play

Then one day it was SO funny

At her front door was the Easter Bunny!

Come on in kids – Come inside!

I have these eggs I need to hide.

An Easter Bunny’s not a witch

And I thought this was quite a switch!

Then I remembered what Dad had said

I told it NO! and shook my head

No kids went in that house to play

And soon that Bunny moved away

The house stands empty on our street

And if a witch I chance to meet

I’ll say the empty house is fine

And hand her the “No Sale” sign

So if a witch moves on your block

Be sure to RUN away – don’t walk!

And never ever go inside

You don’t know what she has to hide

I’d hate to think the end of you

Would be a pot of

“Kiddy Stew”
