Story Time Song:

“The Haunted House”
(tune of “The Wheels on the Bus”)
The spiders on the webs they crawl, crawl, crawl
crawl, crawl, crawl
crawl, crawl, crawl
The spiders on the webs they crawl, crawl, crawl
Around the haunted house

Additional Verses:
The ghosts in the attic say, “boo, boo boo”
The skeletons on the porch rattle their bones
The monsters in the closets growl and roar
The bats in the air go flap, flap, flap
The people walking by say, “trick or treat”
