Does anyone recongnize the song that goes as follows (may not be exactly right).
I remember it from elementary school in the 50's but I don't remember all the words.

Witches and Goblins and Jack-o-lanterns bright,
Creep through the town on a cold October night!
You hear the sounds of running feet but nothing can be seen,
And the strangest things can happen on a cold Halloween!

I don't know the name but I found another part to it.


Witches and goblins with jack-o-lanterns bright. Creep through the town on a cold, October night. You hear the sound of running feet where nothing can be seen, and the strangest things can happen on a wild Halloween!

Out in the street, merry children run about. Masks on their faces, they go with noisy shout. They rap at every window pane where people may be seen, and the strangest things can happen on a wild Halloween!

Mp3

I generated an mp3 while playing the YouTube above using Audacity.
Not sure how to get it to you.
I also found the original song was in the book


Heigh-ho for Halloween by
Sechrist, Elizabeth Hough

I need to see the book to find the original lyrics.

Yep that's how I get MP3 off from YouTube all the time is doing the same thing with Goldwave.


Here's the words to "On A Wild Halloween" on Barrett's website:

Pleeeaaase! Can you help me?

I remember this from first grade (1962??) and it was my fav! googled it because we are having a quintessential October day, sun, clouds, strong winds and leaves flying everywhere. Just recall the first verse and melody.....

Hi Savitch... I have also been looking for the whole song. I remember it from my first school in the 70´s. Nice memories... Is there any chance you have it complete by now?
Regards.
