The Lyrics

There's a kind of shriek all over the world tonight
All over the world you can hear the sound of people being frightened
You know why they scream
Just the one of you and nobody else in sight
There's nobody else til a ghost jumps out and gives you a fright

So listen very cautiously
Closer now and you will hear a loud scream
It isn't a dream
The only sound that you will hear
Is when the ghoul whispers in your ear
He wants you for his dinner

There's a kind of shriek all over the world tonight
All over the world you can hear the sound of people being frightened
Aah! aah! aah! aah! aah! aah! aah!
Aah! aah! aah! aah! aah! aah! aah! aah!
Aah! aah! aah! aah! aah---aah! aah! aah! aah! aah!
Aah! aah! aah! aah! aah!

So look out very carefully
Out your window you will see a vampire
I am not a liar
The only sound that you will hear
Is when I holler in your ear
Get a hammer and a stake!

There's a kind of shriek all over the world tonight
All over the world people just like us are frightened to death
Yeah, they're frightened to death
Yikes, they're frightened to death
Yikes, they're frightened to death
