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 he may be carrying a stick

    But for certain ghosts never attack.

 

See that one that’s sat on a grave?

    In the shadows it looks pretty grim

But a smile and a wave just from you

    It will bring lots of pleasure to him.

 

There’s another one clinking his chains,

    But he’s perfectly harmless you know.

Folk think 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!!
