Subject: Have u Seen the Ghost of Tom?
From: GUEST,r.b.

Quite a while ago, when I was in about sixth grade, our music teacher has us sing a song for Halloween called, "Have You Seen the Ghost of Tom".

The chorus went something like this: "Have you seen the ghost of Tom, eyes bugged out and nose too long, with big ugly teeth and a shiny white chin, and only one cheek to keep his tongue in".

Does anyone out there remember this old song? Could I get the lyrics and/or the music for it? It's a fun memory, and a good song for kids at Halloween. Can anyone assist?

It's in the digitrad. Type Ghost of Tom into that box in the upper right corner. Thanks for bringing it up. It's a great one for the coming Halloween season.

Long white bones and his skin all gone
OOh, ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh

And the last line, MAG, is "Wouldn't it be chilly with no skin on?" Bet that's the version in DT, too.
Blessings,
Barbara
