Small ghost, it's time to wake because the moon is overhead
Small ghost, don't ignore me; I know you heard what I said
Small ghost

Climb out from the covers, dress yourself, don't make a sound
Only one night of the year, the monsters are around
Although the costumes of the children try to scare them away
They need a little helping hand, and that's why you're here to save the day

Small ghost, do you remember all the days when we were young?
Small ghost, there isn't time for me to tell you 'bout the sun
Small ghost, you're protector of the Earth on Halloween
I know that you're scared but you are what the people need
Small ghost

Learn to recognise the monsters even in the dark
They have made a hive of sorts at the south of Monroe Park
Make sure that your sword is sharpened, glinting metal blade
Someday many years from now, the people all will say

Small ghost, can you whisper all your secrets in my ear?
Small ghost, we're surrounded by haunts & spooks; nothing to fear!
Small ghost, don't forget to bring the flashlight from the wall
I hope that you know I love you even though you're small
Small ghost
