Happy Halloween

October 29, 2016

...A reason not to be sad about the end of the half term holidays - it's haaalllooowweeeennnn!!

 

 

So, Bracken has been hassling me to write a Halloween

song, and I eventually capitulated. I must admit that a lot of the children I spoke to knew more about Halloween than I did - so this song is as much for teachers and parents as it is for children. One problem I had was that some of the key stage 1 children were a little bit scared by the whole idea of Halloween, so I wanted to write a song that explained the fun behind it and to help them understand that it is all about dressing up and make believe. So hopefully the video isn't too scary but is a fun way to learn about what Halloween is and why we shouldn't be afraid...

 

We had lots of fun in the studio (in our producer Ian's flat) recording the track, and on set (in my flat) shooting it!! Any guesses on the musical inspiration behind the song? Get in touch via the questionnaire to win a prize for guessing the correct musical influence!

 

Have fun and happy singing - and get ready for the Bonfire Night song which will be out in a few days time!! I've also included the basic chords with the lyrics below to help out any of you who might like to have a play along.

 

Happy Halloweening - Andy

 

HALLOWEEN

 

                  If you see a ghost delivering post                  

Or a ghoul floating past your school
If you see a bat with a terrible thirst
It's October the 31
st


On Halloween, nothing's as it seems
On Halloween, you'll scream with fear
But don't shed a tear, don't let the evil near
On Halloween, on Halloween...


All over the streets are trick or treats
Zombies and witches you'll meet
Don't be afraid don't be scared
just Make sure that you're prepared,
The best way to be safe is candy & sweets
For that's the only food they eat
Light up your pumkins in your windows
But don't lost in shadows

 

Chorus

In the dark of night you'll get quite a fright
From Creepy crawlies trying to bite
You’ll hear strange sounds around in the air
so Remember to take good care,
They'll be monsters in masks and wizards with staffs

Broomsticks and crackly laughs
They'll be blood and gore all over the floor
So remember what I said before....

 

Double Chorus out
