The Lyrics

Halloween (Give Up The Costumes)

She said she needed a rake
She needed to rake the leaves
But then she went Trick-or-Treatin'
With some guy named Leelan
Just to get some candy

There's nothing wrong with Halloween
If you are seven or eight
I know you like the candy
But when you're forty-three
It's a little too late

So when you're done
Trying to be clever
And dressing up
Like a scary character
You know your therapist will be right her waiting for you

Give up the costumes
It's just not the same since you're going grey
We're getting tired of you
Just forget all about this holiday
You are old enough to drive a car
Cook dinner, go to work and shave
I know nutritional food sucks worst than sweets any day

I know you ladies these days
It's not that easy to take
You always want to feel younger
And it's getting on my nerves
But I'll still sit here and wait
For her to come back home
(I wish she'd come back home)
It shouldn't take very long
(ding dong ding dong)
And the police are at my door
She's dressed like a dinosaur
Is this against the law?

So when you're done
Thinking you're clever
Dressing up
Like a cartoon character
You know that your lawyer will be right here waiting for you

Give up the clown shoes
It's just not the same since you're middle-aged
And now you are on the news
For unwritten laws you just had to break
30 messages on the answer machine
Of complains the whole town has made
They all say that you are ruining Halloween

Your co-workers want you back
The mailman wants you back
Oprah wants you back
And Mr. Clean wants you back
(Na na na na)
R movies want you back
(Na na na na)
The Trick-Or-Treaters want you back
I've got a premonition
I'm taking a petition
And the whole town's gonna sign

Give up Halloween
It's just not the same since you're going grey
By the time you're thirteen
It's time to give up the holiday
Why don't you leave the town alone?
And let the kids enjoy it instead

Give up the costumes
It's just not the same since you're middle-aged
We are getting sick of you
So forget all about this holiday
Why don't you leave the kids alone?
And let them enjoy it instead
But it's 4 a.m. now so lets just go back to bed
It's 4 a.m. now so lets just go back to bed
And now it's 4:01 so please lets go back to bed! Yeah
