"Spooky Scary Skeletons" is a song by Andrew Gold. It is about skeletons as they arise to scare people and cause mischief.


Spooky scary skeletons
Send shivers down your spine
Shrieking skulls will shock your soul
Seal your doom tonight

Spooky scary skeletons
Speak with such a screech
You'll shake and shudder in surprise
When you hear these zombies shriek

We're so sorry skeletons
You're so misunderstood
You only want to socialize
But I don't think we should

'Cause spooky scary skeletons
Shout startling shrilly screams
They'll sneak from their sarcophagus
and just won't leave you be

Spirits supernatural
Are shy, what's all the fuss
But bags of bones seem so unsafe
It's semi-serious!

Spooky scary skeletons
Are silly all the same
They'll smile and scrabble slowly by
And drive you so insane

Sticks and stones will break your bones
They seldom let you snooze
Spooky scary skeletons
Will wake you with a boo!
