The Lyrics

Halloween + Christmas = intriguing concepts
Down in the basement
All pitch black
Air is stale, walls are cracked
I think a creature is living there
Lurking and waiting to give a scare

Oh no no
I wouldn’t go
Oh no no
Who’d ever go
Down in the basement
Squeak, creak, click
Up to the hallway I run quick

What if a phantom or demon dwell
In that lonely cluttered hell
Maybe some zombies hide in store
(They must’ve ent’red through my back door)

Oh no no
I wouldn’t go
Oh no no
Who’d ever go
Down in the basement
Yet more sound
It’s sad that it pushes me around

[Instrumental]

Look for a flashlight, go downstairs
Hold my breath for the possible scares
I see a barrel and old cloth sack
A taxidermied deer and a sword and- ACK!

Oh no no
Why did I go
Oh no no
Please don’t go
Down in the basement
Please stay out
What I discovered made me shout

Oh no no
Why did I go
Oh no no
Please don’t go
Down in the basement
Squeak, creak, click
What I discovered would make you sick

Down in the basement, go upstairs quick
Personally, I think he found the zombies (the same ones from It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Halloween), but that’s just my opinion.
