Track Name: Precious Little Soul
Perfect little soul
Snuggled to my breast
Listen to my beating heart
Guide you to your rest

As the moonbeams shine
And the stars align
May angels wrap you in their wings
As you dream of many wondrous things

Perfect little soul
Close your weary eyes
Wake again another day begins
And the shadows hide
Track Name: Bats in the Walls
There are bats in the walls
And a wolf at the door
And a voice in the cupboard cries, "get out"
But try as you might
In this moonlit night
Your feet won't get you past the couch

Howling, growling, yowling, squeak
Rustle, rattle, flutter, creak
Bumping, thumping, slumping, sneak
Cackle, hackle, shackle, shriek

Cobwebs crossing here and there
Spiders on your hair
A trick of light and shadow shows
A ghost atop the stairs
A creature gurgles in the sink
They come from everywhere
And down the hall a mummy moans
You'd best be aware

It's Halloween
It's Halloween
It's Halloween
It's Halloween

You can hide if you will
Under the covers so still
Safe from night and its chill
Hold you close until

It's Halloween
It's Halloween
It's Halloween
It's Halloween
Track Name: It's a Perfect Night for Halloween
Who's that lurking in the distance?
Who's that rustling in the trees?
Who's that moving in the shadows?
Who's that standing next to me?

And the wolf cries howl. howl, howl
And the owl questions who, who who?
And the bat shrieks eee, eee, eee

It's a perfect night for Halloween

Who's that lurking in the distance?
Who's that rustling in the trees?
Who's that moving in the shadows?
Who's that standing next to me?

And the wolf cries howl. howl, howl
And the owl questions who, who who?
And the bat shrieks eee, eee, eee

It's a perfect night for Halloween
It's a perfect night for Halloween
Track Name: Rose Mary's Garden
Rose Mary's garden holds a secret
One she'll never let you tell
Rose Mary's garden grows so slowly, so strangely
The flowers sleep under a spell

Behind the wall you see a ghost planting poppies in the air
And of the left-hand side you see a fanged cat also glare
Underneath the garden gate you see a hidden stair
O round and round your mind it spins fast as flight who knows where

Rose Mary's garden's so enticing
Voices call out like a bell
Rose Mary's garden is locked so tightly, so frightly
And on the lock's a grinning skull

Behind the wall you see a ghost planting poppies in the air
And of the left-hand side you see a fanged cat also glare
Underneath the garden gate you see a hidden stair
O round and round your mind it spins fast as flight who knows where

Rose Mary's garden opens widely
Inviting as if all inside is well
Rose Mary's garden holds a treasure, surely
Forever in the walls it must dwell

Behind the wall you see a ghost planting poppies in the air
And of the left-hand side you see a fanged cat also glare
Underneath the garden gate you see a hidden stair
O round and round your mind it spins fast as flight who knows where

Something's missing from the garden
Something's loose upon the world
Something's missing from the garden
Something's loose upon the world
Track Name: Hush-a-Bye, Dragon
Hush-a-bye, my little dragon
Don't you cry, my little dragon
Momma's here
To wipe away your tears

We'll fly through pillow skies
Count your scales and horns
I'll sing you lullabies
Tuck under my wing

Hush-a-bye, my little dragon
Don't you cry, my little dragon
Momma's here
To take away your fears

I'll make the village scream
Ti lull you fast asleep
And as the fires die
I'll bring you sweet, soft sheep

Hush-a-bye, little dragon
Close your eyes
And goodnight
