More Halloween Songs

Last year I collected a great big round up of slightly spooky songs, and I’ve come across a few more fun ones that I wanted to share.

For all these songs, you can click the song titles to see my sources. I altered the first song a little (green ghosts didn’t match my felts, and kids seem more rambunctious than delicious). Scroll down to the bottom for more about the felts.

Five Grey and Spooky Ghosts
Tune: Five Green and Speckled Frogs

Five grey and spooky ghosts

Doing what they love most
G                              D

Scaring some most rambunctious kids (Boo! Boo!)

One flew into the sky

Where it was nice and dry
G              D                G

Now there are four grey spooky ghosts (Boo! Boo!)

4... 3... 2... 1...

Flap Flap Flap Little Bats
Tune: Ten Little…

Flap, flap, flap little bats

Flap, flap, flap little bats

Flap, flap, flap little bats
G7           C  

Early in the evening

Sleep... early in the morning

Old MacDonald Had a Haunted House
Tune: Old MacDonald
C                   F       C              G7      C

Old MacDonald had a haunted house, E - I - E - I - Boo!
                        F     C            G7      C

And in that house there was a bat, E - I - E - I - Boo!

With a flap flap here, and a flap flap there

Here a flap, there a flap, everywhere a flap flap
                    F       C              G7      C

Old MacDonald had a haunted house, E - I - E - I - Boo!

Owl... hoot...
Mouse... squeak...
Spider... creep...
Cat... meow...
Ghost... boo...

The Spooky Pokey
Tune: The Hokey Pokey

You put your foot bones in, you take your foot bones out

You put your foot bones in, and you shake them all about

You do the spooky pokey, and you turn yourself around

That’s what it’s all about!

Hand bones...
Funny bone (elbow)...
Back bones...
Neck bones...

Felt Story Extensions
The ghost felts are borrowed from my Ten Little Ghosts set, while Old MacDonald is an extension of the Old MacDonald guessing game. Owl, bat, and mouse templates are from Pattern Universe. I’d like to make a set of haunted houses as well, but for now we’ll sing it as “haunted barn.”

You can also use the barn/animal set with the rhyme, “Little ghost playing hide and seek… Are you in the orange barn? Let’s take a peek.”
