Scarecrow, Scarecrow, turn around.
Scarecrow, scarecrow, jump up and down
Scarecrow, scarecrow, arms up high
Scarecrow, Scarecrow, wink one eye
Scarecrow, scarecrow, bend your knee
Scarecrow, scarecrow, flap in the breeze
Scarecrow, scarecrow, climb into bed
Scarecrow, scarecrow, rest your head

Sing to: "Farmer in the Dell."
The goblin in the dark, The goblin in the dark,
Hi, Ho it's Halloween, the goblin in the dark!
The goblin takes the ghost, The goblin takes the ghost,
Hi, Ho it's Halloween, the goblin takes the ghost!
The ghost takes the witch, The ghost takes the witch,
Hi, Ho it's Halloween, the ghost takes the witch!
The witch takes the cat, The witch takes the cat,
Hi, Ho it's Halloween, the witch takes the cat!
The cat takes the bat, The cat takes the bat,
Hi, Ho it's Halloween, the cat takes the bat!
The bat stands alone, The bat stands alone,
The owl goes hoo, (cup hands to mouth)
The ghost goes boo (wave hands out in front)
The bats go eek (flap arms)
The pumpkin rolls around (roll hands)
The scarecrow waves good-bye (wave)
Five Little Pumpkins
Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate,
The 1st one said, “Oh my, it’s getting late.”
The 2nd one said, “There are witches in the air.”
The 3rd one said, “But we don’t care.”
The 4th one said, “Let’s run and run and run.”
The 5th one said, “I’m ready for some fun.”
Woooooooo! went the wind & out went the lights,
And the five little pumpkins rolled out of sight.
