Whooooooo.....

Scary version of "If You're Happy & You Know It"
If you're a skeleton and you know it, rattle your bones
If you're a skeleton and you know it, rattle your bones
If you're a skeleton and you know it
Then your bones will surely show it
If you're a skeleton and you know it, rattle your bones

Repeat with:
If you're a cat and you know it, say “Meow...”
If you're a bat and you know it, flap your wings...

If you're a wolf and you know it, give a howl...
If you're a ghost and you know it, just say, “BOO!”


Ghost Named Matt flannel script (source unknown)
Once there was a little blue ghost. His name was Matthew but everyone called him Matt. Matt was short and fat, and he lived with the other ghosts in the Old Ghost Hotel.

Once night, Matt decided that he didn't like being a blue ghost, so he set out to find himself a new color. Matt looked up and saw a yellow moon. There's the color for me, he thought. And he said, “I'm a ghost named Matt, I'm short and fat, and I can change my color - just like that!”

Matt flew back to the Old Ghost Hotel to show the other ghosts his new color. They looked at Matt and said, “Ho, ho, ho. Hee, hee, hee. You're the silliest ghost we ever did see!”

Matt decided that he didn't like being a yellow ghost, so he set out to find himself a new color. This time he saw an orange pumpkin. There's the color for me, he thought. And he said, “I'm a ghost named Matt, I'm short and fat, and I can change my color - just like that!”

Matt flew back to the Old Ghost Hotel to show the other ghosts his new color. They looked at Matt and said, “Ho, ho, ho. Hee, hee, hee. You're the silliest ghost we ever did see!”

Matt decided that he didn't like being an orange ghost, so he set out to find himself a new color. This time he saw a brown owl. There's the color for me, he thought. And he said, “I'm a ghost named Matt, I'm short and fat, and I can change my color - just like that!”

Matt flew back to the Old Ghost Hotel to show the other ghosts his new color. They looked at Matt and said, “Ho, ho, ho. Hee, hee, hee. You're the silliest ghost we ever did see!”

Matt decided that he didn't like being a brown ghost, so he set out to find himself a new color. He flew around and around. "I don't want to be a yellow ghost. I don't want to be an orange ghost. I don't want to be a brown ghost. I just want to be me--I want to be a blue ghost."

And so he said, “I'm a ghost named Matt, I'm short and fat, and I can change my color - just like that!”

Matt flew back to the Old Ghost Hotel. This time the other ghosts didn't laugh. They said, "Good - you’re back to normal again. Come on, let's go ghosting."

Now Matt was happy to be a blue ghost and away he went.
