Track Name: "Welcome," Said the Spider
"Welcome," said the spi-der,
"Come right in."
"I’m so glad to have you,
I feel mighty thin."

"Rest your weary bones,
put down your pack;
the time has now come
to have a snack!"
Track Name: The Ghost of John
Have you seen the Ghost of John?
Long white bones and all the rest gone.
Ooo Ooo
Wouldn’t it be chilly with no skin on?
Track Name: Three Little Ghostesses
Three little ghostesses
sitting on postesses,
eating butter’d toastesses,
sitting on postesses.

Three little ghostesses
greasing their fistesses
up to their wristesses,
greasing their fistesses.

Three little ghostesses;
oh, what beastesses
making such feastesses;
Oh, what beastesses!

Track Name: Mactavish is Dead
Oh! Mactavish is dead and his brother don’t know it.
His brother is dead and Mactavish don’t know it.
They’re both of them dead and they’re in the same bed,
and neither one knows that the other is dead!
Track Name: Skin and Bones
There was an old woman all skin and bones. Ooo-oo-oo-oo!

She lived down by the old grave-yard. Ooo-oo-oo-oo!

One night she thought she’d take a walk. Ooo-oo-oo-oo!

She walked down by the old grave-yard. Ooo-oo-oo-oo!

She saw the bones all lying round. Ooo-oo-oo-oo!

She went to the closet to get a broom. Ooo-oo-oo-oo!

She opened the door and BOO!
Track Name: Queen Nefertiti (The Mummy)
Spin a coin, spin a coin, All fall down;
Queen Nefertiti stalks through the town.

Over the pavements her feet go clack,
Her legs are as tall as a chimney stack.

Spin a coin, spin a coin, All fall down;
Queen Nefertiti stalks through the town.

Her fingers flick like snakes in the air,
The walls open wide at her green-eyed stare.

Spin a coin, spin a coin, All fall down;
Queen Nefertiti stalks through the town.

Her voice is thin, a ghost of the bees;
She’ll crumble your bones, she will make you freeze.

Spin a coin, spin a coin, All fall down;
Queen Nefertiti stalks through the town.

Track Name: Old Witch, Old Witch
(First verse Anonymous)

Old Witch, Old Witch, she lives in a ditch,
And combs out her hair with a hickory switch.
She lives on nails and snails and flies
And if you go near her she’ll wobble her eyes!

(Second and Third verses by M Ryan Taylor)

Old Witch, Old Witch, she lives in a ditch,
And combs out her hair with a hickory switch.
She lives on volts and bolts and gears
And if you go near her she’ll wobble her ears!

Old Witch, Old Witch, she lives in a ditch,
And combs out her hair with a hickory switch.
She lives on quartz and warts and hose
And if you go near her she’ll wob-ble your nose!
Track Name: Witch, Witch, Where Do You Fly?
Witch, Witch, Where do you fly?
Under the clouds and over the sky.

Witch, Witch, What do you eat?
Little black apples from hurricane street.

Witch, Witch, What do you drink?
Vinegar and good red ink.

Witch, Witch, Where do you sleep?
Up in the clouds where the pillows are cheap.

Track Name: I'm a Mean Old Witch
I’m a mean old witch with a mean old cat,
And we fly through the air on a mean old bat.
There are three mean owls living in my hat,
And I feed ev’ry owl with a mean old rat.

Singing, "Drawkvaloobalavy dim dum day,
The mean old witch is here to stay."

I’m a mean old witch with a mean old cat,
I will blend you a brew in a great big vat
That will green your ears, and then make them fat,
From the leftover water at the Laundromat.

Singing, "Drawkvaloobalavy dim dum day,
The mean old witch is here to stay."

I’m a mean old witch with a mean old cat,
I will blend you a brew from a strain of gnat,
And a spiderwolf poached in butterfat
So you’ll trip ever after on your "Welcome" mat.

Singing, "Drawkvaloobalavy dim dum day,
The mean old witch is here to stay."

I’m a mean old witch with a mean old cat,
I will blend you a brew from a tuba blat,
And some dryer lint from your habitat
Sending you somersaulting like an acrobat.

Singing, "Drawkvaloobalavy dim dum day,
The mean old witch is here to stay."

I’m a mean old witch with a mean old cat,
Yet if you will engage me in chitterchat,
And then pet my feline with gentle pat
You may find that I’m simply not as bad as that.

Singing, "Drawkvaloobalavy dim dum day,
The mean old witch is here to stay."

Track Name: Unlikely Company : from 3 Quodlibets for a Gaggle of Ghouls
The Banshee:
Ooo
Ooo
That is my Ban-shee call so cruel!
Ooo

Frankenstein’s Monster:
Victor Frankenstein put me together with spare parts.
It’s hard to kill a creature with four brains and seven hearts!

The Fay:
Join in the chant of a fairy princess.
Join in the dance where the toadstools grow.
Summon the magic we long for dearly.
Summon the creatures we love and know.

The Troll:
Tromping through the woods at night,
I must find you before the morning light!

The Bug-a-boo:
Hiding underneath your shadow I am always here;
ev’ry time you look for me I am al-ways near!
Bug-a-bug-a-bug-a boo! Bug-a-bug-a-boo!
I am ev’rything you hope and ev’rything you fear!
Track Name: The Ghost Ship : from 3 Quodlibets for a Gaggle of Ghouls
The First Mate
Hoist that sail! Our colors unfurl!
We’ll give ‘em ten guns or we’re not the Black Pearl.

The Cook
Yo ho ho and a bottle of rum!
I pilfer’d a pint but I can’t taste none!

The Navigator
Land must be near, not very far;
Follow the moon, nev-er the star.

The Cabin Boy
Doomed, we’re doomed to roam, we’re doomed!

The Captain
Why didn’t I think? Oh, Why didn’t I fear?
What good is the gold with a curse so drear?
Track Name: We're Back! : from 3 Quodlibets for a Gaggle of Ghouls
The Mummy :
Wo, Wo!
Beware the curse of the mummies moan!

The Vampire:
Flying through the air by the pale moonlight,
I have come my dear to have a little bite!

The Zombie:
Zombie! Voodoo! I say to you
please let me sleep I’m through!

The Skeleton:
Click, click-a-clack, click-a-clack, tap, pirouette.
Click, click-a-clack, the skeletons all dance!
Track Name: Five Little Pumpkins
Five little pumpkins sitting on a gate;
The first one said, "Oh my it’s get-ting late!"
The sec-ond one said, "There are witch-es in the air!"
The third one said, "But we don’t care! We don’t care!
They might be scary but we don’t care!"

Number four said, "Run, let’s run!"
The fifth one said, "I’m ready for some fun!
"Ooo-oo" went the wind and out went the light,
and five little pumpkins went rolling out of sight!

"Welcome," said the spi-der,
"Come right in."
"I’m so glad to have you,

the time has now come
to have a snack!"
