Don’t scream when you first meet a ghost
For you’ll cause it alarm and despair,
And frightening a creature like this
Is something that’s not really fair.
Ghosts were once people you know
And they long to be somebody’s friend.
Their lives were SO happy on earth;
They were sad when they came to an end.
Ghosts are quite friendly you know -
Look there’s one that is all dressed in black
And, oh look! He is carrying a stick
But for certain ghosts never attack.
See that one that is sat on a grave?
In the shadows it looks pretty grim
But a smile and a wave just from you
Will bring lots of pleasure to him.
There’s another one clinking his chains,
But he’s perfectly harmless you know.
Folk think that ghosts don't laugh at jokes
And are creatures who’re all full of woe.
But creepy? No, certainly not!
And they don’t all roam round in the night.
Oh, do say hello to this one - - - - -
Oh come back. Please don’t rush off in fright!!
