Scary Scary Halloween

by ?

When you go to sleep tonight

Have a pleasant dream

Think of all the creatures out to fright

On this scary scary Halloween

There is not a doubt

On Halloween they all come out

So have  a pleasant dream

This scary, scary Halloween

Pull the covers close and tight

Have a pleasant dream

Think of all the goblins out to fright

On this scary scary Halloween

There is not a doubt

On Halloween they'll all be out

So have a pleasant dream

This scary scary Halloween

Come out on Halloween

and be a ghost or gremlin or a goblin

As frightful as we seem

We love to see your costumes

little children

You flatter us by being scary

Ghoulish monsters green and hairy

When you go to sleep tonight

Have a pleasant dream

Think of all the creatures out to fright

On this scary scary Halloween

Flatter us by being scary
(There is not a doubt)

Ghoulish monsters green and hairy
(on Halloween they all come out)

So have a pleasant dream

This scary scary Halloween

This song is very obscure.  In 1998, I borrowed a cassette tape from the library entitled Halloween Fun.  It looked kind of juvenile, but I thought I'd take a listen to it anyway.  There were three songs on it that I liked alot:  Scary, Scary Halloween, Tonight Is Halloween, and The Halloween Song.  The Halloween Song was a real gem...it has a very sad, nostalgic melody that sometimes even makes me a little teary.
A couple years ago, I decided to make my own Halloween compilation cd with my favorite songs on them.  I looked for the cd of the Halloween Fun album everywhere online and I couldn't find it.  I was very disappointed.
Then one day my sister, who knew nothing of my search, came home from the library and said she had come across a Halloween cd I might enjoy.  Low and behold, it was the Halloween Fun cd!
I added the three songs to my compilation cd, and they've become as much of a Halloween song tradition as the Monster Mash.  

September 2005 - Hmm, I guess I'll leave my little story up, because it shows what a fascinating person I am, right? *crickets chirping*
 Anywho, since I very much doubt a midi will be coming my way anytime soon, I have uploaded a low quality sample wav.
I strongly urge you to buy the cd Halloween Fun if you enjoy this song :)

If anyone can make a midi of any of the three songs from this album I mentioned, please email me!
I can provide the mp3's or wav's, if need-be.
