Headless Horseman riding by and things that go bump in the night
After the children are safely tucked in bed their thoughts bring fright
Lightning flashes outside electrifying a grey cloudless sky
Lycanthropy neighbors change forms and are spied barking at the moon
Old skeletons wandering down the streets in broken pieces
Witches brew magic in the cauldron and chant incantations
Earth rotten zombies gathered on the front porch trying to get in
Evil laughter from the Vampire on the corner that licks his lips
Nightmares are well and alive before the child closes his eyes
