Subject: ADD LYRC(?) Ghost Tom
From: Susan-Marie
Date: 22 Oct 97 - 08:32 AM

There is one verse to Ghost of Tom in the DB, but I have a partial memory of a second verse:

Have you seen the ghost of Tom
???????
With big ugly teeth and a shiny white grin
Only one cheek to keep his tongue in

Does anyone else remember this second verse, and can you fill in the missing line?

GHOST OF TOM
Have you seen the ghost of Tom?
Eyes bugged out and nose too long
With big ugly teeth and a shiny white chin
Only one cheek to keep his tongue in.

Have you seen the ghost of Tom?
Long white bones with the skin all gone
OOOOOOOOOOOOO!
Wouldn't it be chilly with no skin on?

The first verse is from "This Is Music," Teachers Book 7, Wm. R. Sur, Dubois and Nye, Allyn and Bacon, p. 171, with music, "source unknown."
One verse in the DT.
Also known as "Ghost of John."

Any more?

Loooong-white-bones-with-the skin-all-go-hoo-ooone
Ooo-ooo-ooo-ooo
Wouldn't-it-be-chilly-with...no-skin-onnnn? "

Thanks for bringing back a well-loved childhood Halloween song
