Haunted House

Gene Simmons

I just moved in my new house today
Movin was hot but I got squared away
Bells started ringin and chains rattled loud
I knew I'd moved in a haunted house

Still I made up in my mind to stay
Nothin was a gonna drive me away
When I seen somethin that gave me the creep
Had a one big eye and two big feet

I stood right still and I did the freeze
And he did the stroll right up to me
Made a sound with his feet like a drum
Sayin you'll be here when the mornin comes

Say yes I'll be here when the mornin comes
I'll be right here and I ain't gonna run
I bought this house now you know I'm boss
Ain't no haint gonna run me off

In the kitchen my stove was a blazin hot
The coffee was a boilin in the pot
The grease had melted in my pan
I had a hunk of meet in my hand

From out of space there sat a man
On a hot stove was pots and pans
Say that's hot I began to shout
He drank a hot coffee from the spout

He ate the raw meat right from my hand
Drank the hot grease from the fryin pan
He said to me now you better run
And don't be here when the mornin comes

Say yes I'll be here when the mornin comes
I'll be right here and I ain't gonna run
I bought this house now you know I'm boss...

Devil Inside

INXS

Here come the woman
With the look in her eye
Raised on leather
With flesh on her mind
Words as weapons sharper than knives
Makes you wonder how the other half die
Other half die
Here come the man
With the look in his eye
Fed on nothing
But full of pride
Look at them go
Look at them kick
Makes you wonder how the other half live

The devil inside
The devil inside
Every single one of us the devil inside

The devil inside
The devil inside
Every single one of us the devil inside

Here come the world
With the look in its eye
Future uncertain but certainly slight
Look at the faces
Listen to the bells
Its hard to believe we need a place called hell

Swamp Witch

Jim Stafford

The wildwood flower grew wild on the farm,
And we never knowed what it was called.
Some said it was a flower and some said it was weed,
I never gave it much thought ......
One day I was out there talking to my brother,
Reached down for a weed to chew on,
Things got fuzzy and things got blurry,
And then everything was gone!

Didn't know what happened,
But I knew it beat the hell out of sniffin' burlap.

I come to and my brother was there,
And he said, What's wrong with your eyes?
I said, I don't know, I was chewing on a weed.
He said, Let me give it a try.
We spent the rest of that day and most of that night,
Trying to find my brother, Bill.
Caught up with him, 'bout six o'clock the next morning,
Naked, swinging on the wind mill!
He said he flew up there.
I had to fly up there and bring him down,
He was about half crazy .....

The very next day we picked a bunch of them weeds,
And put 'em in the sun to dry.
Then we mashed 'em up and chopped 'em up,
And put 'em in the corncob pipe.
Smokin' that wildwood flower got to be a habit,
We didn't see no harm.
We thought it was kind of handy,
Take a trip and never leave the farm!

All good things gotta come to an end,
And it's the same with the wildwood weed.
One day this feller from Washington came by,
And he spied it and turned white as a sheet.
Then they dug and they burned,
And they burned and they dug,
And they killed all our cute little weeds.
Then they drove away,
We just smiled and waved ..........
Sittin' there on that sack of seeds!

This Is Halloween

Marilyn Manson

Boys and girls of every age
Wouldn't you like to see something strange?

Come with us and you will see
This, our town of Halloween

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Pumpkins scream in the dead of night

This is Halloween, everybody make a scene
Trick or treat till the neighbours gonna die of fright
It's our town, everybody scream
In this town of Halloween

I am the one hiding under your bed
Teeth ground sharp and eyes glowing red

I am the one hiding under yours stairs
Fingers like snakes and spiders in my hair

This is Halloween, this is Halloween

Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
In this town we call home
Everyone hail to the pumpkin song

In this town, don't we love it now?
Everybody's waiting for the next surprise

Round that corner, man hiding in the trash can
Something's waiting no to pounce, and how you'll...

Scream! This is Halloween
Red 'n' black, slimy green

Aren't you scared?

Well, that's just fine
Say it once, say it twice
Take a chance and roll the dice
Ride with the moon in the dead of night

Everybody scream, everybody scream

In our town of Halloween!

I am the clown with the tear-away face
Here in a flash and gone without a trace

I am the "who" when you call, "Who's there?"
I am the wind blowing through your hair

I am the shadow on the moon at night
Filling your dreams to the brim with fright

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!
Halloween! Halloween!

Tender lump lings everywhere
Life's no fun without a good scare

That's our job, but we're not mean
In our town of Halloween

In this town

Don't we love it now?

Everybody's waiting for the next surprise
Skeleton Jack might catch you in the back
And scream like a banshee
Make you jump out of your skin
This is Halloween, everybody scream
Wont' ya please make way for a very special guy

Our man jack is King of the Pumpkin patch
Everyone hail to the Pumpkin King, now!

This is Halloween, this is Halloween
Halloween! Halloween! Halloween! Halloween!

In this town we call home
Everyone hail to the pumpkin song

La la-la la, Halloween! Halloween! [Repeat]

Thriller

Michael Jackson

 

It's close To Midnight and Something Evil's Lurking in The Dark.
Under The Moonlight, You See A Sight That Almost Stops Your Heart.
You Try To Scream, But Terror Takes The Sound Before You Make It.
You Start To Freeze, As Horror Looks You Right Between The Eyes,
You're Paralysed

You Hear The Door Slam, And Realize There's Nowhere Left To Run.
You Feel The Cold Hold, And Wonder If You'll Ever See The Sun
You Close Your Eyes, And Hope That This Is Just Imagination, girl
But All The While, You Hear The Creature Creepin' Up Behind
You're Out Of Time

They're Out to Get You, There's Demons Closing In On Every Side.
They Will Possess You, Unless You Change The Number On Your Dial.
Now Is the Time for You and I to Cuddle Close Together dear.
All Thru The Night, I'll Save You From The Terror On The Screen,
I'll Make You See

Darkness Falls Across The Land, The Midnight Hour Is Close At Hand.
Creatures Crawl In Search Of Blood To Terrorize Yours Neighbourhood
And Whosoever Shall Be Found Without The Soul For Getting Down
Must Stand And Face The Hounds Of Hell, And Rot Inside A Corpse's Shell.

The Foulest Stench Is In The Air The Funk Of Forty Thousand Years
And Grizzly Ghouls From Every Tomb Are Closing In To Seal Your Doom
And Though You Fight To Stay Alive Your Body Starts To Shiver
For No Mere Mortal Can Resist The Evil Of The Thriller

'Cause this Is Thriller, Diller Night
and No-ones Gonna Save You from the Beast about Strike.
You Know its Thriller, chiller Night
You're fighting for Your Life inside a Killer, Thriller.

Thriller, Diller Night
'Cause I can thrill you More Than Any Ghoul Could ever dare try. (Thriller, Diller Night)
So Let Me Hold You Tight And Share A Killer Diller Chiller,
Thriller Here Tonight.

'Cause this Is Thriller Diller night
girl I Can Thrill You More Than Any Ghoul Could ever dare try
Any Ghoul could ever Dare Try
(Thriller, Diller Night) So Let Me Hold You Tight and Share a Killer thriller.

Devil With A Blue Dress On

Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels

Fee, fee, fi, fi, fo-fo, fum
Look at Molly now [2: look out once again, now], here she comes
Wearin' her wig hat and shades to match
She's got high-heel shoes and an alligator hat
Wearin' her pearls and her diamond rings
She's got bracelets on her fingers, now, and everything
She's the devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress,
Devil with the blue dress on
Devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress,
Devil with the blue dress on
Wearin' her perfume, Chanel No. 5
Got to be the finest girl alive
She walks real cool, catches everybody's eye
She's got such good lovin' that they can't say goodbye
Not too skinny, she's not too fat
She's a real humdinger and I like it like that
She's the devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress,
Devil with the blue dress on
Devil with the blue dress, blue dress, blue dress,
Devil with the blue dress on

("Good Golly Miss Molly" interlude:)
Good golly, Miss Molly
You sure like to ball
Good golly, Miss Molly
You sure like to ball
While you're rockin' and rollin'
Can't you hear your mama call
From the early, early mornin' 'til the early, early nights
See Miss Molly rockin' at the House of Blue Lights
Good golly, Miss Molly
You sure like to ball
While you're rockin' and rollin'
Can't you hear your mama call

She lived in a magic possessed
by the devils skew
from a shack near the swamp lands
made of mud be brick.
Marie stirred her witches brew.

Marie

Dime or a nickel anyone could buy
voodoo of any kind
she had potions and lotions herb
and tanna leaves guaranteed to blow your mind
early one mornin' into mucky swamp
dew vanished Marie with hate in her eyes
tho' she'll never return all the Cajuns knew
a witch-queen never dies.

That Old Black Magic

Robbie Williams

That old black magic has me in a spell
Old black magic that you weave so well
Those icy fingers up and down my spine
The same old witchcraft when your eyes meet mine
The same old tingle that I feel inside
And then that elevator starts to ride
Down and down I go, round and round I go
Like a leaf that's caught in a tide
I should stay away but what can I do
I hear your name and I'm aflame
Aflame with burning desire
That only your kiss can put out the fire
For ever, lover, I have waited for
You're the mate that fate had me created for
And every time your lips meet mine
Darling, down and down I go, round and round I go
In a spin, loving the spin I'm in
Under that old black magic called love
Oh, in a spin, loving the spin I'm in
Under the old black magic called love
In a spin, loving the spin I'm
Under the old black magic called love
I should stay away but what can I do
I hear your name and I'm aflame
Aflame with burning desire
That only your kiss could put out the fire
For ever, lover, I have waited for
You're the mate that fate had me created for
And every time your lips meet mine
Darling, down and down I go, round and round I go
In a spin, loving the spin I'm in
Under that old black magic called love
Oh, in a spin, loving the spin I'm in
Under the old black magic called love
In a spin, loving the spin I'm in
Under the old black magic called love
Under the old black magic called love, love, love, love, love

Black Magic Woman

Santana

 

I got a Black Magic Woman.
I got a Black Magic Woman.
Yes, I got a Black Magic Woman,
She's got me so blind I can't see;
But she's a Black Magic Woman and
she's trying to make a devil out of me.
 


Don't turn your back on me, baby.
Don't turn your back on me, baby.
Yes, don't turn your back on me, baby,
Don't mess around with your tricks;
Don't turn your back on me, baby,
'cause you might just wake up my magic sticks.
 


You got your spell on me, baby.
You got your spell on me, baby.
Yes, you got your spell on me, baby,
Turnin' my heart into stone;
I need you so bad,
Magic Woman I can't leave you alone.

Purple People Eater

Sheb Wooley/Alvin & The Chipmunks/ Sha Na Na

Well I saw the thing comin' out of the sky
It had the one long horn, one big eye
I commenced to shakin' and I said "ooh-eee"
It looks like a purple eater to me

It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
(One-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater)
A one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me (One eye?)

Well he came down to earth and he lit in a tree
I said Mr. Purple People Eater, don't eat me
I heard him say in a voice so gruff
<I wouldn't eat you cuz you're so tough>

It was a one-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
One-eyed, one-horned flyin' purple people eater
One-eyed, one-horned, flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me (One horn?)

I said Mr. Purple People Eater, what's your line
He said it's eatin' purple people and it sure is fine
But that's not the reason that I came to land
<I wanna get a job in a rock and roll band>

Well bless my soul, rock and roll, flyin' purple people eater
Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin' purple people eater
(We wear short shorts)
Flyin' purple people eater
Sure looks strange to me

And then he swung from the tree and he lit on the ground
He started to rock, really rockin' around
It was a crazy ditty with a swingin' tune
<Sing a boop boop aboopa lopa lum bam boom>

Well bless my soul, rock and roll, flyin' purple people eater
Pigeon-toed, undergrowed, flyin' purple people eater
<I like short shorts>
Flyin' little people eater
Sure looks strange to me (Purple People?)

And then he went on his way, and then what do ya know
I saw him last night on a TV show
He was blowing it out, a'really knockin' em dead
Playin' rock and roll music through the horn in his head

Halloween

Stephen Lynch

Thinking of all the cool creatures that I will meet on this night
Ghosts and goblins and witches roaming the streets in moonlight
Bowls of candy and goodies, delicious and waiting in store
The sound of cute little footsteps as they approach my front door

Letting the children inside to drink beers
Razor blades hidden in three musketeers
Screams from the basement of kids begging to be set free
That's what Halloween means to me

Tightening the clamps that are holding their little heads so tight
Putting my lips to their ears as I whisper please don't fight
I promise I'll let you go home if you swear not to tell a soul
Well I'll just untie these, I'm kidding now where is my chainsaw? Let's rock and roll

A pinch of your brother, a teaspoon of you
With the head of your sister would make a good stew
I'd give you a taste but you're tongue's in the stew; irony
That's what Halloween means to me

Trick-or-treat, smell my feet
Give me something good to eat
Trick-or-treat, smell my feet
Give me someone good to eat

The Martian Hop (1963)

The Ran-Dells

Papa ooh mir mir papa ooh

mir mir papa ooh mir mir

papa ooh mir mir
Ee-ee-ee ee-ee


I got into my rocket ship to see the Martian Hop
I saw the planet shining red so there I made my stop
But as I opened up the door and climbed the ladder down
I saw the Martians on the floor a-dancin' to this sound
Ee-ee-ee ee-ee the Martian Hop ee-ee-ee ee-ee-ee-ee

I saw I was the first one there and so I was surprised
To see the Martians twist and stomp before my very eyes
They did the locomotion and the hully-gully too
I couldn't name a single dance the Martians couldn't do
Ee-ee-ee ee-ee the Martian Hop ee-ee-ee ee-ee-ee-ee

Now right around the stroke of twelve the dance had just begun
They earth kids parked their spaceship down on Mars to have some fun
And so I left my friends, the Martians, stomping on the ground
And even though I'm back on earth I still can hear this sound.
Ee-ee-ee ee-ee the Martian Hop ee-ee-ee ee-ee-ee-ee
(fade out while repeating "papa ooh mir mir")

Halloween Is

Tom T Hall

How would you like to be scared right out of your socks
Whether or not you're wearin' socks
How would you like to be frightened out of your room
With some big scary something out of the gloom
That's what Halloween is it's a fright'ning time
Ghosts and goblins a runnin' around

and spookin' you out of your mind
Sometimes I get dressed up

and I go frighten them where they live
Trick or treat that's what Halloween is

One time I saw a ghost on top of my barn

I was alarmed he was on my barn
I ran right up and said ghost trick or treat
And I almost scared that ghost right out of his sheet
That's what Halloween is...

When Halloween comes we're gonna make people scream
We're gonna be ugly and we're gonna be mean
We're gonna go trick or treatin' every chance
And we'll frighten all of our neighbours out of their pants
That's what Halloween is...

Dracula

Toni Geiling

Who bites into girls at night? who who guess who
or into boys if no girls in sight who who guess who
young or old anyone will do who now guess who
and tomorrow maybe it is you who who guess who
After twelve at night
I spread my wings out far
and I fly so high
because Iím
Iím Dracula
Who is doomed to loneliness who who guess who
that will last for centuries who who guess who
his only love has long been dead poor now guess who
and now we all fear him with dread who who guess who
After twelve at night
I spread my wings out far
and I fly so high
because Iím
Iím Dracula
It is so practical to fly
fly up in the air
it should be every ones design
but life is just unfair
After twelve at night
I spread my wings out far
and I fly so high
because Iím
Iím Dracula
who bites into girls at night who who guess who
or into boys if no girl inside who who guess who
rich or poor anyone will do who now guess who

Bad Moon Rising

Creedence Clearwater Revival

 

I see the bad moon arising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightnin'.
I see bad times today.

Don't go around tonight,
Well, it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.

I hear hurricanes ablowing.
I know the end is coming soon.
I fear rivers over flowing.
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.

Don't go around tonight,
Well, it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.

All right!

Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Looks like we're in for nasty weather.

One eye is taken for an eye.

Well, Don't go around tonight,
Well, It's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.

Don't go around tonight,
Well, it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.

Werewolves Of London

Warren Zevon

 

I saw a werewolf with a Chinese menu in his hand
Walking through the streets of Soho in the rain
He was looking for a place called Lee Ho Fook's
Going to get himself a big dish of beef chow mein
Werewolves of London
If you hear him howling around your kitchen door
Better not let him in
Little old lady got mutilated late last night
Werewolves of London again
Werewolves of London
He's the hairy-handed gent who ran amuck in Kent
Lately he's been overheard in Mayfair
Better stay away from him
He'll rip your lungs out, Jim
I'd like to meet his tailor
Werewolves of London
Well, I saw Lon Chaney walking with the Queen
Doing the Werewolves of London
I saw Lon Chaney, Jr. walking with the Queen
Doing the Werewolves of London
I saw a werewolf drinking a pina colada at Trader Vic's
His hair was perfect

Werewolves of London
Draw blood
