The Lyrics

Second Halloween parody
Ooh, I bet maybe you just never knew
At this time, my town is filled With some ghouls when it's Halloween
Near the haunted house
Which I don't live near
It took me by surprise, I must say
When I heard it yesterday
Don't you know that I
Heard it through the graveyard
So much farther than my backyard
Oh, I heard it through the graveyard
Oh, There's tons of ghouls outside
Spooky, spooky, yeah
(Heard it through the graveyard
So much farther Was a
Loud noise baby , ooh ooh ooh)
I thought I was gonna go out of my mind
Then I went downtown to take a close look
Haunted house, it had a ghost nook Then I was so off the hook
The noises started to swell
Hadnt seen up close, well
Before I
Heard it through the graveyard
So much farther than my backyard
Oh, I heard it through the graveyard
Oh, There's tons of ghouls outside
Spooky, spooky, yeah
(Heard it through the graveyard
So much farther Was a
Loud noise baby , ooh ooh ooh)
I could hear them but I couldn't see
I could see the graveyard as you see
Out popped up a couple zombies
Hope next up;s not killer bees
Im hearing all these ghosts
Noise wasn't this loud before
Don't you know
I Heard it through the graveyard
So much farther than my backyard
Oh, I heard it through the graveyard
Oh, There's tons of ghouls outside
Spooky, spooky, yeah
(Heard it through the graveyard
So much farther Was a
Loud noise baby , ooh ooh ooh)
I thought I was gonna go out of my mind
Then I went downtown to take a close look
Haunted house, it had a ghost nook Then I was so off the hook
The noises started to swell
Hadnt seen up close, well Before I Heard it through the graveyard
So much farther than my backyard
Oh, I heard it through the graveyard
Oh, There's tons of ghouls outside
Spooky, spooky, yeah
(Heard it through the graveyard
So much farther Was a
Loud noise baby , ooh ooh ooh)
I could hear them but I couldn't see
I could see the graveyard as you see
Out popped up a couple zombies
Hope next up;s not killer bees
Im hearing all these ghosts
Noise wasn't this loud before
Don't you know
I Heard it through the graveyard
So much farther than my backyard
Oh, I heard it through the graveyard
Oh, There's tons of ghouls outside
Spooky, spooky, yeah(Heard it through the graveyard
So much farther
Was a
Loud noise baby , ooh ooh ooh)spooky, spooky, I know
That Im hearing these ghosts
Said I heard it through the graveyard
Ooh, I heard it through the graveyard
