Why don't you rise me up?
Down by the pumpkin patch
I've been waiting all year just to get myself born,
I've been waiting all year just to meet you.
It'll be a real special occasion
if you'd come on along,
'cause we're gonna go trick or treating.
Why don't you rise me up ?
Down by the pumpkin patch,
it gets so cold, it gets so queer,
while i'm sitting here waiting for you
to be sincere,
i need you to come out to the fields at night,
i need you to to plant your candied corn,
you got to dance around naked
by the light of the full moon,
for me to get good and born.
You have to rise me up
from the pumpkin patch, rise me up.
why don't you?
you've got to, rise me up.
Oh, i've been hurt so many times,
punched in the stomach and kicked in the eye,
left by the side of the road to die,
but you wouldn't do that to me, i know why,
'cause in the pumpkin patch, you rise up.
Well I been hurt so many times,
kicked out of homes and bands and lives,
left all alone just asking why,
you wouldn't do that to me, would you baby?
Up from the pumpkin patch,
the lonely pumpkin patch,
up from the pumpkin patch, yes, yes.
Amen.

The Great Pumpkin loves YOU.

    General Commentat first I didn't really like this song but then I played it with my headphones around the house at like 3am while everyone was sleeping really loud and wow. It's amazing I'm hooked. It's impossible to be in a bad mood after hearing this song
