5 Kid-friendly Halloween Songs | The M House
This morning, I stopped at the local coffee shop/bookstore for a warm-me-up mocha joe. There's nothing better on a cool, fall morning. Behind the counter is a poster full of oranges, yellows and reds that reads, "Curl-up in the crisp leaves of a good book." It makes me smile every time. It reminded me of a cute book I bought for Z. It's called "You Are My Pumpkin" by Mary Lee. It's great for this time of year. I love it because you can read it or sing it! The words are a perfect match to "You Are My Sunshine," which I sing to Z all the time. 

This got me thinking about other kid-friendly Halloween songs. She's not quite ready for Thriller. ;) Besides an old Halloween song I remember singing in French class back in 5th grade, I don't really know any other songs. And even worse, I only remember about two lines of the one in French.

I made it my mission to find some fun Halloween songs for Z. Google didn't let me down. I found a site called The Whyching Well. There are tons of Halloween songs you can sing to the tune of your favorite nursery rhymes and Christmas carols. I've listed five below.

1. Picked a Pumpkin (sung to the tune of Clementine)
Picked a pumpkin, picked a pumpkin, 
Picked a pumpkin just now 
I just now picked a pumpkin 
Picked a pumpkin just now...
(More lyrics on website)

2. Fly Fly Witchy (sung to the tune of She'll Be Comin' Round the Mountain) 
She'll be riding on a broomstick when she comes
She'll be riding on a broomstick when she comes
She'll be riding on a broomstick ...I hope she won't get airsick!
She'll be riding on a broomstick when she comes
Chorus: 
Singing fly, fly witchy witchy fly
Singing fly, fly witchy witchy fly
Singing fly, fly witchy,
Fly, fly witchy..
Singing fly, fly witchy witchy fly

3. Halloween Haunt (sung to the tune of A Hunting We Will Go) 
Oh, a haunting we will go,
A haunting we will go,
We'll catch a ghost,
And put him on a post
And then we'll let him go.

Oh, a haunting we will go,
A haunting we will go,
We'll catch a cat
And put him in a hat
And then we'll let him go. 

Oh, a haunting we will go,
A haunting we will go,
We'll catch a witch
And put her in a ditch
And then we'll let her go.  

4. Halloween (sung to the tune of Mary Had a Little Lamb) 
Halloween is coming soon,
Coming soon, coming soon
Halloween is coming soon,
Boo, boo, boo! 
(More lyrics on website

5. Halloween is Coming (sung to the tune of I'm a Little Teapot)
Halloween is coming,
I like it the most.
You can be a goblin,
I’ll be a ghost.
When we get all dressed up
We will say....
BOO!!!!
IT’S TRICK OR TREAT TODAY !!
