Halloween Song for Children

October 31, 2018


NOTE:  Halloween Greetings to all!  Since this October 31, 2018, is such a treat of an autumnal day in Milwaukee and since my recent blog posts have been lengthy, this week I am sharing with my WORDWALK readers the Halloween treat of a children’s song of the season.  For a little Halloween fun with the little ones in your life, sing the following lyrics to the tune of “Frere Jacques” (also known as “Brother John” or “Martinillo”).  (A closing note follows the lyrics.)


Trick-or-treat Song


by Auntie Alice


Carving pumpkins,


trick or treat,

trick or treat!


Sing scary like a ghost now–

scary like a ghost now!

BOO to you!

Boo!  Boo!  Boo!


DEDICATION:  The above Halloween song is dedicated to my grand-nieces (Emmy and Lanie) and my grand-nephews (Caden, Tyson, and Trey), as well as to my little cousins (Gracie, Emma, Isabella, Mia, and Luca) and my special friend Harper.


WORDWALK NOTE:  Please return to WORDWALK throughout the month of November for my third annual series entitled “A Month–Not Just a Day–of THANKS.”  Almost always, I post onto my blog each Wednesday evening.  I look forward to your joining me on WORDWALK during the upcoming month of Thanksgiving.


Happy Halloween to all!

    Although the Halloween celebrations are finished for this year in my prekindergarten class, I will certainly add your cute Trick-or-Treat Song to my songbook to sing with my students next year. We sing every day!
