October is a lovely month
When the leaves start looking like gold
It isn't overly hot this month
Nor it isn't overly cold

That's when we start to reminisce
About things old and new
Like Columbus, who discovered us
In Fourteen-Hundred-Ninety-Two

Halloween will soon be here
With goblins in masks and sheets
And when they come around that night
They tell us "trick or treats"

It reminds us of when we were young
We were always short on jack
Our biggest thrill was to upset
That little house out back

Those little houses have long been gone
We've now grown old, and so
We'll just relax in our easy chairs
And dream of things from long ago
