The Lyrics

Happy Halloween from the A-Team!
Halloween night let's go get "booed"
I just hope that it doesn't start pouring rain
Better make sure you play by trick or treat rules
Want sugar to my brain, if not you'll be shamed

Give me a treat, boy, I'd sell my soul
I want a Mars Bar or a Tootsie Roll to make my day
Yeah, give me a treat, boy, I'll lose control
If I don't get a sweet from your festive bowl I swear you'll pay

When you trick or treat better not waste time
You miss one house might as well miss two
And older kids can be unkind
So I'm packin' some heat - got my cap gun with me

Give me a treat, boy, I'd sell my soul
I want a Mars Bar or a Tootsie Roll to make my day
Yeah, give me a treat, boy, I'll lose control
If I don't get a sweet from your festive bowl I swear you'll pay
Yes I swear that you'll pay

And when the candy's free
You know a Snickers Bar would move me
I will T.P. you
If you think your spare change will soothe me

These Almond Joys that you've given me
(Ohhh the Joy that you have given me)
There's no way a Skor could ever do me wrong (ohh yeah)
Reeses and Twix and Symphony (hmmmmmmm)
They help me alongóChocolate's making me strong

Give me a treat, boy, I'd sell my soul
I want a Mars Bar or a Tootsie Roll to make my day (make my day)
Yeah, give me a treat, boy, I'll lose control
If I don't get a sweet from your festive bowl I swear you'll pay
(Swear you'll pay)

Give me a treat, boy, I'd sell my soul
I want a Mars Bar or a Tootsie Roll to make my day (make my day)
Yeah, give me a treat, boy, I'll lose control
If I don't get a sweet from your festive bowl I swear you'll pay

As one member of the A-team, I'll start with the thanks...

I have to thank, first of all, my partner in crime, Miss Kicksass...because she really DOES kick ass...and she totally picked this up and ran with it when I was stumped...and made my mediocre idea a great parody...=) Thanks, Johnny...you can call us sweet any time you want...but you really should work on that drooling! ; ) Scathe...thanks a ton!

Dee...pick me up a Milky Way while you're there, would ya? Thanks!!

Jeff...LOL! To be quite honest, "Pumpkin" is one of my very favorite terms of endearment. Thanks!

alvin...I would have run between the houses...but I probably would have tripped over my pillowcase and landed on my chin. And then Ash would just stand there and laugh at me! Thanks!

I know what you mean, Alvin. In the suburban developments I lived in growing up, some parents would actually let the kids fill-up one set of bags around the neighborhood, then pile the kids into the station wagon or sedan (pre-minivan-days) and drive to some other neighborhood to do it all over again...and again...and again...

DAMMIT!!!

Scathe was totally supposed to get his own line!
Jeff Reuben - October 26, 2004 - Report this comment
Johnny...I did that last year! My parents hinted that I was too old for them to be driving me around though =)
Ashkicksass - October 26, 2004 - Report this comment
Thank you Johnny, Scathe and Dee - what a bunch of sweeties!

Jeff, you can call me whatever you want. How's that?

Alvin, Halloween still is my favorite holiday. I love it SOOO much and I'm still devastated that I can't trick or treat anymore. I remember asking my mom if we could start trick or treating on our way home from school. She always said no, but really, how cool would that have been?

Johnny and Jeff part 2 - LOL to both of you!

And lastly, to my darling Arwen who totally thought this one up - thank you for letting me join in this fabulous idea.

Great job, you two! The cap-gun line was wonderful.
Arwen - October 26, 2004 - Report this comment
Thanks, John!! I loved that line, too...and it was ALL Kicksass' doing...=)

damn, if I don't stay up late, by the time I get to these new entries all the good puns are taken! So I'll complain instead - don't make me drool you two - I DKT tootsie-roll, symphonys, skors, even Halloween routines - but I'm sure YOU'LL all have a good time - THAT"S the important thing - don't worry about ME, no I'll be fine, yeah - 555
Peregrin - October 26, 2004 - Report this comment
Funny! Marianne beat me to the Mars Bar comment tho!
Ashkicksass - October 26, 2004 - Report this comment
LOL to Marianne and Peregrin! Thanks!

But CRY OL to Stuart. No Tootsie Rolls? No Symphonys, Skors, or Halloween routines? Surely you jest! I can't possibly imagine life without Halloween. First the Earth, and now this! You poor, poor, poor, poor dear!!! (Don't worry...I'll be sure to eat some candy for you...)
Arwen - October 26, 2004 - Report this comment
Don't feel too bad, Pippin...Ash stole my "I'll eat lots of candy on your behalf, Stuart" line...

Thanks again to everyone who has stopped by!!
Stuart McArthur - October 27, 2004 - Report this comment
yeah, you too....you SAY you'll do that, but you couldn't possibly shove it in, in the quantities I can (...it's just not the same, okay)
Stuart McArthur - October 27, 2004 - Report this comment
(er, please alter that to "yeah you two")...........okay, continue
