The Lyrics

Part of my "Shine Brighter" self-challenge. An experienced ghost is ready to move on, but wants one last hurrah before he does so. Enjoy!
Booooh-oo-oo-ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
Booooh-oo-oo-ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh

I've been going "BLAAAH!"
At young campers sleeping out in the park
They thought they were tough
Now they're seeing freaky things in the dark
I have been a ghost
For a thousand years, give or take a score
But I'm getting sick
Of this haunting lark, can't do it no more
Meh

Well, I've tricked fully grown-up men
Paranoid, they're tearin' up the roo-oom
I've made them get cold in bed
See my face, then run down the road-ooh-ooh
I've freaked out ev'rybody
Made a party end with one boo-ooh-ooh
My curse has come to an end
I hope heaven's where I'm off to-ooh-ooh

But before I pass to the afterlife
I just wanna give people one last fright
Though they've wet their pants 'bout a zillion times
I just cannot leave without one last fright

No longer a ghost
Purgatory's fin'lly come to an end
But I can't just stop
Must remind the world that I scare the best
They've been waking up
In the morning, they're dripping with cold sweat
And if they dare look up
They'd see me laugh like the Joker himself
Yeah

Replay these memories again
Like watchin' a "Best Of" of my boo-ooh-oohs
(Watchin' a "Best Of")
Got into these people's heads
Makin' them scared of their shadow-ooh-ooh
(Of their shadow)
Made uptight people tardy
And they can't explain why, they're screwed-ooh-ooh
(They are so screwed, yeah)
But I can't leave it like this
Would feel amiss, without one last booh-ooh

Scarin's been my art since the time I died
(Yeah, yeah)
So I can't just leave without one last fright
(Oh-oh)
I've done ev'ry trick 'bout a jillion times
(Yeah)
I can't bare to leave without one last fright
(Yeah)

Booooh-oo-oo-ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
I gotta give 'em one last fright

Booooh-oo-oo-ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
My vic'try lap, except with frights
Booooh-oo-oo-ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
(Oooh yeah)
One last hurrah, just one more fright
Booooh-oo-oo-ooh, ooh ooh ooh ooh
(Ooh, yeah-eah-eah-eah, yeah-eah-eah)

Now my spree's comin' to an end
Lotta wettin' beds, what a big mess, dude
Sometimes it's been little kids
Sometimes grown men, don't matter, no-ooh
Heard they're makin' a movie
No permission from me, not coo-ool
Yeah-eah-eah, yeah-eah-eah
Yeah
Yeah-heeeeeeeeeeeah-eah-eah

Now I've found my target, so in due time
(Oh-oh oh-oh, oh-oh oh-oh-oh-oh)
These producer gits will get one good fright
(Oh, oh-oh oh-oh oh-h)
There will be scripts lost and computers fried
(Oh, soon those corp'rate hacks will cry)
It'll be build-up to my one last fright

(Just couldn't leave with one last fright)

Soon I'm gonna pass to the afterlife
(Yeah-eah, yeah-eah)
That can be delayed just for one last fright
(Yeah-eah, yeah-eah-eah-eah)
There's production hell, then there's me all riled
(Yeah-eah, yeah-eah)
Now I'll stop this song, time for my last fright
(Yeah-eah, yeah-eah-eah-eah)
I find it amusing that this song ended up at number 18 on the end of year charts in both America and Australia. Maybe they'd be different if the Billboard charts had it's cutoff date at the end of year instead at the end of November, who knows. Who cares, really.

I was working with this song a bit myself, you did a nice job with it. Good fit with your lyrics.

Fits well with TOS. If recorded, I think a Beetleguise voice would be funny. Well done.

(SOTM) Loved this topic with this song. I was laughing the whole way through.

And if it was a ghost of a chicken, it would be a poultrygeist. I enjoyed the energetic ghosts story. :c) Nice work

I really like the OS, so that got bonus points for me. Great job with this spooky spoof.
