They had run through the night.

Through shadows long and short

And shadows unseen.

Under shifting moonlight,

They had saved Halloween.

They had help from two owls

And some slinky black cats.

They had been guided

By high and low flying bats

And a lantern named Jack.

They had heeded the words

Of the big birds black.

They had done everything

The ravens had rasped.

What was left-nothing more.

They hurried now, hurried back

To the skeleton door.

They had to make it through,

Before the mid-night.

Before it closed, forever shut tight.

They were at the fence now,

The door they were nearing.

Oh no!

Their skeleton keys were disappearing,

First one, then two.

With P-Nut and Sadie along their side

They ran so fast, they almost flew.

Would they make it inside?

Would they make it through?

Just a few more steps under the skeleton stare.

Just a few more steps.

They were almost there!
