Lyrics

Written by maritorri

Verse 1 My lover left me on the eve of Halloween So I tossed out all the candy and I took to the streets Walked through an old graveyard, a bleak necropolis Came across a skeleton crew playing instruments And I said… Chorus 1 Hey… you… skeleton crew You got me hypnotized (mesmerized?) Your haunting rhythm’s sending shivers down my spine That big bass drum has got me rockin’ through the night Beware of that skeleton crew 'Cause when their band starts playin’ They’re comin' for you Verse 2 All the monsters mashed it up in a spooky ghoulish style Mr. Mean Old Pumpkin head cracked a jack-o-lantern smile That cemetery jam lasted through the night Those bony skeletons brought me back to life So I say... Chorus 2 Hey… you… skeleton crew You got me hypnotized (mesmerized?) Your haunting rhythm’s sending shivers down my spine That standup bass (upright bass?) has got me rockin’ through the night Beware of that skeleton crew 'Cause when their band starts playin’ They’re comin' for you *Guitar Solo Break* Chorus 3 Hey… you… skeleton crew You got me hypnotized (mesmerized?) Your haunting rhythm’s sending shivers down my spine That Gretsch guitar has got me rockin’ through the night Beware of that skeleton crew 'Cause when their band starts playin’ They’re comin' for you Outro That skeleton crew Beware of that skeleton crew They'll be comin' for you ***END*** ***LYRIC BONEYARD BELOW*** My lover left me on the eve of Halloween so I tossed out all the candy and I took to the streets The wolves were howling at the moon, a creamy pie then I heard that stand up base from the graveyard by and by the highway It lured me in with a tempo oh so sweet That stand up bass and high hat, put dancing in my feet so I pushed past the monuments and bleak Necropolis came upon a skeleton crew playing instruments CHORUS My skeleton crew You are exactly what I need clanking bones on old gravestones This Halloween Your bony joints and fingers flailing to the beat but make no bones about it You're my trick or treat
