    Default I'm new here, looking for title and lyrics to old halloween song

    Hi,

    I am looking for the lyrics and title of an old halloween song that has been stuck in my head for many years now. I have searched and searched the different halloween song lyrics sites, but cannot find the one I am looking for. I only know a few lines :

    On October thirty one/ when the sun/ goes to rest
    That's the night of Halloween/ it's the very best
    Witches and the goblins too/ oh what fun / it is for you..........


    HELP !!!!!!!! This is really stuck in my head and it is a great song, but I need to know the rest of it.

    Dude ... good luck with that. The only reference I found was here, and all it says is that it's called the "Halloween Song". I know - that's about as helpful as a heart attack. I searched my drives for "Halloween Song" and nothing came up with those lyrics.

    Dinosaur. Your link leads to some rare coin website. Where does it make reference to the song on that site?

    The only thing close to that title I found in my files is called "A Halloween Song", and it is set to the tune of East Side, West Side. Those lyrics are not in the song anywhere though.

    I searched Google, and the only thing I found was a site claled TheFiveSisters. It had a thread titled "On October thirty one when the sun goes to rest". I emailed them asking if they knew what song those words came from. No answer back though.

    mickey, is there a style / genre to this song? Is it a children's song? Mainstream? Where did you hear it - school? the radio?

    I'll see what I can find. . .

    I remember it from my childhood. Maybe school ? I have a friend who remembers it too, but doesn't know the words either and she is about 15 years older than I am so the song must have been around for quite awhile.

    Found this added info but still no song title:

    "Back in Bergen Street School, my inner-city grade school in New Jersey, the Halloween assembly theme music was always a pounding, foreboding piece whose lyrics and music have been imbedded in my memory.

    The first line went like this: "On October thirty one when the sun goes to rest/ It's the night of Halloween, when fun is at its best. "

    The tune we sang those words to was, I learned in high school, Edvard Grieg's "In the Hall of the Mountain King," one of four movements... "

    Wow, you are really good ! I just logged on to post here and say that I just found out the name of the tune is "In the Hall of the Mountain King" by Edvard Greig. I learned this while watching a dvd with my little godson "little einstien's halloween" and the kids are singing a trick or treat song to the tune. It is the right song, but not the lyrics I know. I wish I could find out the rest of the lyrics, all I know are these :

    On October thirty one when the sun goes to rest/ That's the night of Halloween when fun is at it's best

    The witches and the goblins too/Oh what fun it is for you.....................

    and then there is more, but it escapes me ! I wish someone could help me out. I looked on youtube and can find a lot of people playing it on guitar, but no lyrics !

    HELP!!!!!!!!!!!

    Also, there is a midi for it on some website called "haunted illinois" and it is on the Halloween midis page, #25, called "It's Halloween", that is not very helpful either, as there are no lyrics.

    Yes, but it's a new title to search for.

    Another midi site says "Its Halloween" comes from "The Nightmare Before Christmas" movie.
