An early Halloween gift: Slay Ride

Post by Angelique » Mon Oct 13, 2008 3:25 am

I wrote this on a whim while inspired by the wild weather we get in what passes for autumn where I live, and my daughter singing "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and it's not even Halloween!"

Though I do not own "Sleigh Ride," this parody is best sung brightly and loudly to the same tune.
Slay Ride

Let’s hear those doorbells jingling, ring-ting tingling too.
Come on, it’s cool, cool weather for trick-or-treating with you.
Outside the snow is falling and ghosts are wailing, "oooOOOOooooo.”
Come on, it’s nippy weather for trick-or-treating with you.

Trick-or-treat, trick-or-treat, trick-or-treat, let’s go. Let’s look at the show.
We’re trudging through a scary land of snow.
Trick-or-treat, trick-or-treat, trick-or-treat, it’s clammy holding your hand.
We’re walking along with a song of a wintery Halloween land.

Let’s hit that road before us, and we’ll sing a chorus or two. Come on, it’s chilly weather for trick-or-treating with you. Outside the snow is falling and ghouls are shouting out, “BOO!”
Come on, it’s frosty weather for trick-or-treating with you.

There’s a party at the haunted home of Dorian Gray.
It’ll be the perfect ending of a freaky day.
We’ll be gorging ourselves with chocolate bars without a single stop,
and with candy corn, apples, and some lollipops.
Pop, pop, pop.

There’s a spooky feeling nothing in the world can buy
when we see the candle glowing through the pumpkin’s eye.
It’ll simply be like that holiday film by that Tim Burton guy.
These frightening things are the things we’ll remember until we die.
These frightening things are the things we’ll remember until we die!

Let’s hit that road before us and we’ll sing a chorus or two. Come on, it’s icy weather for trick-or-treating with you.
Outside the snow’s still falling and werewolves are howling, “AaaaOOOOOH!”
Come on, it’s frigid weather.
It’s snowy weather.
It’s freezing weather,
sub-zero weather,
but still not too cold for trick-or-treating with you.

You are too clever by half, girl!

Thanks for sharing your talent with us.
