Headless Horseman

When the spooks have a midnight Jamboree

They break it up with fiendish glee

Ghosts are bad, but the one that's cursed

It's the Headless Horseman, he's the worst


That's right, he's a fright, on Halloween night


But when he goes a-joggin' 'cross the land

Holdin' his noggin in his hand

Demons take one look and groan

And hit the road for parts unknown


Beware, take care, he rides alone


And there's no spook, like a spook who's scorned

They don't like him, and he's really burned

He swears to the longest day he's dead

He'll show them that he can get a head


They say he's tired of his flamin' top

He's got a yen to make a swap

So he rides one night each year

To find a head in the hollow here


Now he likes them little, he likes them big

Part in the middle, or a wig

Blond.. grey or even red

The Headless Horseman needs a head


With a hip-hip and a clippity-clop

He's out lookin' for a top to chop

So don't stop to figure out a plan

You can't reason with a headless man


Now if you doubt this tale is so

I met that spook just a year ago

No, I didn't stop for a second look

For once you cross that bridge, my brook friends


The ghost is through, his power ends


So when you're riding home tonight

Make for the bridge with all your might

He'll be down in the hollow there

He needs your head, look out, beware


With a hip-hip and a clippity-clop

He's out looking for a head to swap

So don't try to figure out a plan

You can't reason with a headless man......{{{{.BaHaaaaBaha}}}}!!!!!!
