Pumpkin Carols

Does anyone remember the Peanuts Pumpkin Carols book? It was orange and shaped like a pumpkin (the Great Pumpkin, as the Peanuts characters would say), and it was full of Halloween "carols"/filks. Ah, the memories.

My quotes for the day come from some of these songs.

Teaser:
I heard the bells on Halloween
Their old, familiar carols scream,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
The pumpkin season's here again.




"Shivery Yells" (to the tune of "Silver Bells")

We're on sidewalks, we're on porches, dressed in costumes to scare;
Through the city we're ringing the doorbells.
Trick or treating, candy eating, gooey stuff in our hair,
But the most fun is shrieking out loud:
SHIVERY YELLS, SHIVERY YELLS,
That's the Halloween nitty-gritty.
Moan and groan, leave us alone,
Halloween's just one night a year.





"I Heard the Bells on Halloween" (to the tune of "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day")

I heard the bells on Halloween
Their old, familiar carols scream,
And wild and sweet the words repeat
The pumpkin season's here again.

Then peeled the bells more loud and strong
Great Pumpkin comes before too long!
The good will get the bad will fret
The pumpkin season's here again!!





"Pumpkin Wonderland" (to the tune of "Winter Wonderland")

Screech owls hoot, are you listen'in?
Beneath the moon, all is glist'nin--
A real scarey sight; we're happy tonight.
Waitin' in a pumpkin wonderland!
In the patch, we're watching for Great Pumpkin;
We've been waiting for this night all year.
For we've tried to be nice to everybody,
And to grow a pumpkin patch that is sincere!!!
Later on, while we're eating
What we got trick-or-treating;
We'll share all our sacks of Halloween snacks;
waiting in a pumpkin wonderland!!


Just one more Halloween quiz (because I'm a sucker for them at the moment):
