Musicman pumpkin carols (16) pumkin carols 13 Oct 01

'tis that time of year again when the followers of the Great Pumpkin rekindle the Halloween spirit with the sounds of Pumpkin Carols:




Oh, you better not shriek, you better not groan,
you better not howl, you better not moan,
Great Pumpkin is coming to town,.

He's going to find out, from folks that he meets
who deserves tricks and who deserves treats,
Great Pumkin is Coming to town!

He'll search in every pumpkin patch,
Haunted houses far and near,
To see if you've been spreading gloom
or bringing lots of cheer,

So, you better not shriek, you better not groan,
you better not howl, you better not moan,
Great Pumpkin is coming to town!


We're on sidewalks, we're on porches,
dressed in costumes to scare.
Throught the city we're ringing the doorbells.
Trick or treating, candy eating,
Gooey stuff in our hair,
But the most fun is shrieking out loud:
Shivery yells, shivery yells,
That's the Halloween nitty-gritty.
Moan and groan, leave us alone;
Halloween's just one night a year.


On the twelfth day of halloween my true love gave to me:
Twelve bats a flying, Eleven maks a-leering, ten ghouls a-groaning
nine ghosts a-booing, eight monsters shrieking, seven pumpkins glowing, six goblins gobbbling
five scarey spooks, four skeletons, three black cats, two trick-or-treaters, and an owl in a dead tree.


Screech owls hoot, are you list'nin?
Beneath the moon, all is glist'nin'
A real scarey sight, we're happy tonight,
Waitin' in a pumpkin wonderland!

In the patch, we're waiting for the Great Pumpkin,
We've been waiting for this night all year,
For we've tried to be nice to everybody
And to grow a pumpkin patch that is sincere!

Later on, while we're eating
What we got, Trick-or-treating
We'll share all our sacks, of Halloween snacks
Waiting in a pumpkin wonderland.


Up in the pumpkin patch Witches pause.
Out jumps the Great One, Hear the applause?!
Down through the rows with goodies and toys
All for this followers' halloween joys!
Haunt! Haunt! Haunt! Who wouldn't want...
Haunt! Haunt! Haunt! Who wouldn't want...
To be in the pumpkin patch?
Cheer! Cheer! Cheer!
Waiting for the Great One, and being sincere!


Chester's roaming in an open patch;
Jack is stepping on his toes;
We're all waiting for Great Pumpkin to come,
And we're dressed up in goblin clothes.
Everybody knows the goodies that Great pumpkin brings
Help to make our "spirits" bright.
Pumpkin followers with flashlights aglow
Will keep their watch all through the night.
They know Great Pumpkin's coming back.
He'll bring a lot of toys and goodies in his sack.
And all the kids will gather in a batch
When the Great Pumpkin rises out of the patch!
And so I'm offering this wise advice-
"You're gonna grin from ear to ear
On Halloween night when the Great One returns
If your patch is sincere!"


I'm dreaming of the Great Pumpkin
Just like I do this time each year.
When he brings nice toys to good girls and boys,
Who wait for him to appear.

I'm dreaming of the Great Pumpkin
With every Pumpkin card I write.
May your jack-o-lanturns burn bright
When the Great Pumpkin visits you tonight.
