Wait a minute! I recognize this song!

Yes it is familiar, I heard it long

Ago when I was still but a young boy,

My heart was still pure and my mind still coy

But all those years have passed and I have learned

That the world was oh so much vaster than

What it had appeared, my whole view had turned,

If only I had known all I know then…

The night is eerie, my mind is weary,

And yet my body does feel quite cheery,

Long forgotten are these thousand one frights

For tonight feels the night of all the nights!

This strange, fun tune, I have heard it before!

My body remembers: to the dance floor

where it drags me in a fateful twist,

I throw up my arms and throw up my fist,

My legs move one their own, my heart dances,

My mind falls into one of those trances,

I swear I can control myself no more!

The stones are lit up with old Jack’s lanterns

As these old bones rattle in twists and turns,

And I am not alone under the moon,

The people of the night have come to croon,

Oh we are all here, and we are giving

Our souls — oh look! There’re even some living!

There was no body and then, in a flash!

Everyone was dancing the Monster Mash!


Of course, what else?
