Observations of Halloween from the Perspective of a Monster” Aka “Jack-o's Song”

This song was created for Game of Bands round 255 : "Halloween VI"

Lyrics:

Come, brothers and sisters!
Come, one and all!
For the moon is rising faster
And the leaves do fall!

Winter is not yet upon us
We must hold strong!
For the carolers are coming
And the goths can’t hold for long

So strike up the lanterns!
And light up the strings!
For Christmas dies tomorrow,
When Halloween sings!

Verse 1

Midnight sun
Grace us as they come
Wanderers from far afield
Strange how they become
Masquerade
Candy corn crusade
Underneath the hallow’s eve
The Jack-o' man’s domain
Haunted house
Or so the locals say
But visitors come all the same
As stupid as are brave
Truthfully
Not all of that is right
I’ve never left a single soul
I’m ready for tonight!

Chorus

Walk through the jungle
Savor the ’Burbs
Follow the gremlins
As you herd them about
Greet one another
Wander for hours
Fill up the pumpkin
‘fore the bowls run out

Verse 2

Trick or Treat
Mark the doorbell rings
Such a lovely twisted phrase
Hear the strangers sing
Open wide
What a huge surprise
Watch their eyes grow big with fright
Hear their screams tonight!

Chorus

Walk through the jungle
Savor the ’Burbs
Follow the gremlins
As you herd them about
Greet one another
Wander for hours
Fill up the pumpkin
‘fore the bowls run out

Bridge

Venham para noite mais negra
Quando o universo inverte a regra
Nas ruas ouvimos doce ou travessura
Com os ossos gelados de tanta doçura

Chorus

Walk through the jungle
Savor the ’Burbs
Follow the gremlins
As you herd them about
Greet one another
Wander for hours
Fill up the pumpkin
‘fore the bowls run out
[Exit]
