On All Halloween


It was I, who being quite bored
Went out to the drive-in in my fast back Ford.
To see a few movies and to get down and pet,
though it's been 30 years I remember it yet!

T'was All Hallows Eve and a triple feature,
with Boris and Vincent, not to mention the creature.
The movies were bad, directed by Corman,
but I didn't care, I just wanted to score man!

We crawled in the back and the windows did steam,
as I moved to first base there came a loud scream.
But I hadn't noticed, I was well on my way,
when Linda jumped up and started to say.

"What was that noise, so hauntingly near?"
After looking around I said, "It's nothing dear.
It was only the actors up on the screen,
come back to my arms and don't make a scene."

We settled back down and started to kiss,
when a knock on the door soon ended our bliss.
For there stood a Zombie, a Mummy, and Zoul,
Frankenstein's monster, Vampires, and Ghouls.

They pointed their fingers from us to their maws,
then started to scratch on the glass with their claws.
Amid hissing, and groaning and moaning and such,
I put it in gear man and let out the clutch.

Then into the night we went with a roar,
until we were home and had locked the front door.
And so to you all, this moral I weave
Leave the Acid alone, On All Hallows Eve!
