Once a year on a spooky night
It's Hallowe'en, and what a fright!
Young boys and ghouls, in ghoulish disguise
They cover their skin, conceal their eyes

A grave mistake to be out
When the ghosts are about
It's Hallowe'en... our time to be afraid

In the rest of the world, they don't observe
This bash which has become our biggest concern

Latvia, Laos, Chad, Peru
We need their help, or else we're through
They don't know the fear we endure once a year
All Hallow's Eve, we are afraid!

Do they know it's Hallowe'en tonight?

(Interlude)

It's October 31st, could it get any worse?
Children on streets, begging for treats
Drowning in a bucket of apples bobbing
Parents are hiding, our babies are sobbing

The undead have returned
They're freaking us out
Dragging us down, so we shout:
"Help us! Help us! Save our souls!"
We're dying of fear, and they don't even know it

They think we've got it all
What we need is a team
To help us forget, forget Hallowe'en

"Fools! You think you can stop Hallowe'en?"
"The world can't hear your useless plea!"
"It's too late! Our orange and black plague will soon consume them all!"
"Then everyone will understand the true meaning of Hallowe'en..."
"Pure terror!"

We're all fed up, we've had enough.
Enough, enough, enough, enough!

Trick!
Caramel apples will make you sick
Treat!
And all those sweets will rot your teeth

Ouija board, ouija board (spell this!)
We don't want you here no more

The writing's on the tombstone
Beneath the willow tree
No more razorblades in our kids' candy

Dead dogs and broomsticks
Pumpkins and flames
We're ending this night, ending the shame!

Do they know it's Hallowe'en tonight?
