"Halloween" as written by Claus Norreen, Soren Rasted and Rene Dif....
Aie-e!
Yow!
Oh!
Aaah, y-y-y-yeah!

So it's Halloween
And you feel like dancin'
And you feel like shinin'
And you feel like letting loose

Whatcha gonna be?
Babe, you better know
And you better plan
Better plan all day
Better plan all week, better plan all month, better plan all year

You're dressed up like a clown
Putting on your act
It's the only time all year you'll ever admit that
I can see your eyes, I can see your brain, baby, nothing's changed
I can see your eyes, I can see your brain, baby, nothing's changed

Because you're still hiding in a mask
Take your fun seriously
No, don't blow this year's chance
Tomorrow your mold goes back on
After Halloween, after Halloween

Whee!
You'll go to work today
You'll go to work tomorrow
Shitfaced tonight
You'll brag about it for months
"Remember what I did, remember what I was, back on Halloween?"

But what's in between
Where are your ideas?
You sit around and dream
For next Halloween

Why not everyday, are you so afraid, what will people say?
Why not everyday, are you so afraid, what will people say?
After Halloween
After Halloween
After Halloween

Because your role is planned for you
There's nothing you can do
But stop and think it through
But what will the boss say to you?
And what will your girlfriend say to you?
And the people out on the street they might glare at you
And whadaya know, you're pretty self-conscious too?
So you run back and stuff yourselves in rigid business costumes
Only at night to score is your leather uniform exhumed
Why don't you take your social regulations, shove 'em up your ass?
Why don't you take your social regulations, shove 'em up your ass?
Why don't you take your social regulations, just shove 'em
Up your ass?

    General CommentHalloween is a day for people to be whatever they want and let go of their fear of being judged for it by others. The rest of the year though, most would just be too self conscious to do anything out of the ordinary.

    So true of so many people. I hate when people brag about getting drunk.

    General Commentholy shit. i can't believe i'm the first to comment on this song. it's truly one of dk's best songs lyrically. straight forward but with a clarity only a few people could muster. this is why i love the dead kennedys and punk music. jello is my hero.

    General CommentThe chorus(es) are so catchy:

    "Better plan all week
    Better plan all month
    Better plan all year "

    One of my fave DK songs, as always with great lyrical content.

    It kinda sounds like he's so repressed by the 9 - 5 that he develops a bondage fetish
