Songs and Rhymes:
Five Little Goblins On A Halloween Night...
Five Little Goblins on a Halloween night
Made a very, very spooky sight
The first one danced on his tippy-tip-toes
The next one tumbled and bumped his nose
The next one jumped high up in the air
The next one hopped without a care
The last one sang a Halloween song.
Five goblins played the whole night long.
Ten Little Monsters
One little, two little, three little monsters
Four little, five little, six little monsters
Seven little, eight little, nine little monsters
Ten monsters trick-or-treating!
In the Grave Yard (sung to the tune of "oh my darling ")
In the grave yard, in the grave yard,
When the moon begins to shine,
There's a doctor, crazy doctor,
and his monster Frankenstein.
Oh, my monster, oh, my monster,
oh, my monster Frankenstein,
you are very, very scary, don't come near me Frankenstein.
