The Lyrics

Oh, this brings back memories....
Everybody dresses up to trick or treat
All down our street
In their costumes
All the rich kids get their mom to pay
Mine's afraid
What it costs 'em

Rummage sale
It's hard for me to be that scary
I'm embarrased to say
Sheets that have been eaten through
Cut too short and colored blue
With big clown shoes
And when I fall the kids all make fun
It's just too hard for me don't want to go

Who's afraid of ghosts anyway?
They're just dismayed
Not that spooky
Would've RATHER been anchor DAN,
Uncle Sam,
Or wore a Jackson glove

Rummage sale
It's hard for me to be that scary
When I'm a holey ghost

Rummage sale
It's hard for me to be that scary
Whenever dressed this way
Sheets that have big holes right through
Cut too short and stinky too
With big clown shoes
And when I fall the kids all make fun
And they just start laughing when I go boo

Sheets that have been eaten through
Cut too short and colored blue
With big clown shoes

Don't wanna be the lamest one

They've costumes of Curly, Moe and Larry
I could dress up as Dean or as Jerry
Had the cash I could be really scary
Dress as Bush or maybe Kerry
