Pumpkin Carols for Treeland School at YouTube

Here are some songs I’ve done with students for many years. I don’t know where some came from. I’ve edited them over the years to register MILD on my Scare Meter. I used Halloween as a time to enjoy the fall, learn a bit about fear, and enjoy reading lyrics instead of the usual activities. (I call them Pumpkin Carols but did not include the ones Hallmark put in a card one year–cards which were enjoyed by many kids all over.)

SING IN HONOR OF THE GREAT PUMPKIN.
Imagine yourself with Charlie Brown in the Pumpkin Patch and be sincere.

FALL

I like the fall, the trees and all. Hear the wind call. I like the fall.

 

A HAUNTING WE WILL GO

A haunting we will go. A haunting we will go.

Boo! Watch out for goblins, A haunting we will go.

A haunting we will go. A haunting we will go.

They’ll eat all your candy up! A haunting we will go.

A haunting we will go.  A haunting we will go.

So blame it on the goblins. A haunting we will go!

 

OH, IT’S HALLOWEEN (tune: The Miffin Man)

Oh, do you know it’s Halloween, it’s Halloween, it’s Halloween.

Oh do you know it’s Halloween, it’s Halloween tonight.

Oh, we will make a pumpkin face, a pumpkin face, a pumpkin face.

Oh we will make a pumpkin face, and give ourselves a fright.

 

We’ll listen to the cat’s meow, the cat’s meow, the cat’s meow.

Well listen to the cat’s meow all through the night.

We’ll see some silly costumes, we’ll see some silly costumes.

We’ll see some silly costumes in the pale moonlight.

 

We’ll laugh to see the goblins dance, we’ll laugh to see the goblins dance.

We’ll laugh to see the goblins dance whirling with delight.

We’ll watch the ghosts flit all about, we’ll watch the ghosts flit all about.

We’ll watch the ghosts flit all about, kids all dressed in white.

 

Oh, I’m glad it’s fall and Halloween, I’m glad it’s fall and Halloween.

I’m glad it’s fall and Halloween, we’ll have such fun tonight!

 

SCARECROW

Scarecrow, scarecrow, turn around. Scarecrow, scarecrow, jump up and down.

Scarecrow, scarecrow, arms ups high. Scarecrow, scarecrow, wink one eye.

Scarecrow, scarecrow, time for bed. Scarecrow, scarecrow, rest your head.

 

WE’RE THE SCARECROWS (tune: Sing a Song of Sixpence)
We’re the farmer’s scarecrows. We scare away the birds.
We keep the farmer’s corn safe without any words.

But when Halloween comes we stand there on the ground
We scare the boys and girls when they come around. Boo!

TWO HALLOWEEN OWLS (TUNE: Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star)

Two Halloween owls looking at you. One’s named Boo, one’s named Whoo.
Hi there Boo. Who are you? You say Whoo, and I do too.
Two Halloween owls looking at you. One’s named Boo, one’s named Whoo.

WHERE IS PUMPKIN? (Tune: Where is Thumbkin?)
Where is pumpkin, where is pumpkin? Here I am, here I am.
How are you today sir? Very well, I thank you.
Run away, run away…

JACK-O-LANTERN (Tune: Davy Crockett)

Born in the pumpkin patch in a backyard where Mr. Scarecrow stands on guard.
Raised in the garden where he knew every weed.
Before he was a pumpkin he was a pumpkin seed.
Jack-O, Jack O’Lantern. King of Halloween Night!

WE’RE SCARY SKELETONS (TUNE: Farmer in the Dell)

We’re scary skeletons. We’re scary skeletons.
Clickety clack, we’ve got boney backs. We’re scary skeletons.

HALLOWEEN

Ghosts and goblins all about. Trick or treat we sing and shout.
Halloween, Halloween. Such a spooky time.

See the weird stuff going by, in a dark and gloomy sky.
Halloween, Halloween. Playing and having a good time.

SPOOKY THINGS ARE HAPPENING

There’s something moaning in the old oak tree x 2
But I’m not scared for I’m safe inside. I’m not scared but I think I’ll hide.

There’s something sitting on the porch out there . x 2
But I’m not scared for I’m safe inside. I’m not scared, but I just might hide.

There’s something sitting on the fence out there. x 2
But I’m not scared for I’m safe inside. I’m not scared, but I just may hide.

There’s something flying on a broom up high. x 2
But I’m not scared for I’m safe inside. I’m not scared, but I think I’ll hide.

HALLOWEEN (Tune: Yankee Doodle)

Oh, once in every jolly year there comes a time for fun!
Now’s the time we love so well, for Halloween’s begun.

CHORUS:
Goblins, goblins in the air, goblins booing everywhere.
Up and down and all around, is that one over there?

Oh jolly people all are we with lots of fun and laughter.
There’s always seen on Halloween, putting costumes up right after.
