I’m currently having fun singing songs that require children to guess a rhyming word at the end of a line, such as my version of “Hey, Dr. Knickerbocker” and Icky Sticky & Ooey Gooey. For Halloween, I suggest making as many scary-creature rhymes as possible in order to keep from being frightened by all those goblins and ghouls.
Below are the lyrics to my new “Halloween Rhymes” song, complete with a Garage Band recording that features some ambient howling. Howling is just a blast! You can hear my recording here.

Chorus: Halloween rhymes, Halloween rhymes!
Are you ready for a really spooky time?
Sing these words for Halloween,
And don’t forget to howl in between. Aaa-ooo!
There’s a ghostly sheet saying “trick or treat,”
And a vampire lighting a fire.
A greenish ghoul was in my school
Flashing lights in the middle of the night! Aaa-ooo!
There’s a mean old witch, scratching an itch.
And a bumpkin carving a pumpkin.
And scary ghost eating some toast.
And a spider drinking apple cider. Aaa-ooo!
There’s a big black cat wearing a hat
And a goon beneath the full moon
And I think I saw a goblin, wibblin’ and wobblin’
But who’s that creature eating my teacher? Aaa-ooo!
