Searching for Old-Fashioned Halloween Song Lyrics

                                                                 (Jack-o-lanterns around the house.)

In the first grade, the teacher taught us a song at Halloween.

Here are the words to the first two lines:

       Witches and goblins and jack-o-lanterns bright
        Fly through the air on a cold October night. 

Many, many decades of life have zipped past since that time but those two lines of the scary lyrics remain in my psyche.

Can you imagine that?

I've never been able to find the rest of the song via the Internet and I'm not in touch with any members of my first grade class. 

If anyone out there in blogland, by some miracle, knows the song,  please let me in on the the rest of the verses, will you?

Your post and that cute little pumpkin came up first - made me smile.

I don't remember much from 1st. grade. lol

Witches and Goblins and Jack-o-lanterns bright,
Creep through the town on a cold October night!
You hear the sounds of running feet but nothing can be seen,
And the strangest things can happen on a cold Halloween!

Out in the street, merry children run about.
Masks on their faces, they go with noisy shout.
They rap at every window pane where people may be seen,
and the strangest things can happen on a wild Halloween!

The only Halloween song I know is, "He did the mash. The monster mash!"

Maybe your teacher made the song up?

Sometimes I get flashbacks some good some not so good.
