The Lyrics

There's big business to be made the day after Halloween...
We will be working overtime after Halloween’s dark night
Well, we go back to work on Halloween
It’s our busy time of year, we earn a lot of green
Our hardy cleaning business team is wanted on the street
Smashed pumpkins everywhere, candy wrappers at your feet

We keep on cleaning, we keep on cleaning
We’re cleaning Halloween, no jive, buddy, we do strive
We keep on mopping, we keep on sweeping
When the ghouls calm down, we’ll be cleaning up your town

Like a whirlwind dream, we are a busy team
There is T.P. in the treetops, windows schmutzed with shaving cream
We wear a gas mask when we approach the doors
We need breathing protection from dog-doo bombs galore

We keep on cleaning, we keep on cleaning
We’re cleaning Halloween, no jive, buddy, we do strive
We keep on scrubbing, we keep on rinsing
When the ghouls calm down, we’ll be cleaning up your town

Blood did run, it don’t hide, there’s big stains all outside
Not ‘til it’s spic and span do we end our cleanup plan
Dirt and germies are no more, we’re your creepy janitors
We wet a mop and we never stop, no no
We take that mop, and we never stop…CLEAN IT THROUGH!!

We keep on cleaning, we keep on cleaning
We’re cleaning Halloween, no jive, buddy, we do strive
We keep on sweeping, we keep on mopping
Customers satisfied since 1965
We make floors gleaming, and windows shining
We will be working overtime after Halloween’s dark night

Not bad. I've seen better from you though. You missed a line in the song towards the end and you were kind of repetitious throughout. You did a fine job with the challenge but it didn't feel like you put your all into it. Not bad.

Looks like the two of us took this one on the same way, focusing on the "I keep it going" angle and building around that, with somewhat similar and not fully quite there results. You varied the chorus better than me, but like Matthias said missed a part towards the end. I'd give myself a 444 at best so the same here.

I wish I knew what missing part you guys are talking about. I thought I completely copied Matty's lyrics from the thread page and I haven't listened to the OS yet.

In the last stanza he goes "when the sun goes down i'll be coming to your town" then the last line is "i'll keep my jack o lantern light on for everyone tonight"

Well, for not listening to the original song, this was pretty good. Hard to know which syllables to accent that way, but reading along it matched surprisingly well. The missing part wasn't a big deal to me -- overall a fun read. Also, this makes me feel pretty lame because as a kid, we never went in for the vandalism stuff, we were way too busy begging for candy (I didn't stop until I noticed kids younger than me were the ones handing it out haha)
