The Lyrics

When you're alone
And night is making you fearful
You should never go
Down there
Creatures that scurry
Call with voices of fury
Screams from hell below
Down there

The hissin' and the mewlin' and the fracas in the cellar
Wrinkled witch resides there, scary demon, you can smell her
Vows to abuse

The lights all just flicker there
You can sure bet you'll be troubled, regrets if you dare to go
Down there, wings in the haze and murk
Down there, no spines on wraiths that lurk
Down there, everything's pasty and crude
(Down there)

Don't dare go out
And let those goblins surround you
There are spooky trolls
Out there
Maybe they wear
Some monster faces to scare you
Looking decomposed
Out there

Just listen to the children as they try to trick or treat ya
Necromantic visions, too, the gory types might eat ya
Graphic and grim

The tykes are such frights, beware
You can sure bet you will grovel, you'll fret in despair, don't go
Out there, Allhallows night's a fright
Out there, maybe they'll chew and bite
Out there, you're gonna see those sprites pounce
(Out there, out there)
Out there
(Out there)

And you may find some bodies slimed, too helpless to withstand 'em
Numb ones strewn with yucky goo and T.P. thrown at random
Sliding headlong

So lamely you'll scream and swear
Your sad regrets will be doubled, you'll sweat if you dare to go
Out there, slinking are shapes galore
Down there, gnome faces you'll abhor
Down there, everything's snaky and skewed
Down there (out there)
Down there (out there)

(Repeat until fade out)
