  • Song Lyrics:
    Wit de goblin
    De goblin girl
    From da mystery world

    Wit de goblin
    She's black an green
    'cause it's Halloween

    Raggedy black
    Is the way she dress
    Little green shoes
    An her hair's a mess
    On Halloween night
    At de costume ball
    She's a goblin girl
    An' she can gobble it all

    She's a goblin
    She's a goblin girl
    She's a goblin
    She's a goblin girl
    I been hobblin'
    'cause of the goblin
    Goblin girl ...goblin girl

    Some girls like
    To dress like a witch
    Some girls like to dress like a queen
    Best way a girl
    Can dress for me
    Is in a goblin suit
    (they look so cute...)

    When they're a goblin
    There ain't a problin
    When they're a goblin
    I start a-wobblin'
    Pink all over
    Some is tan

    Goblin girls
    From every land
    They look good
    From any which-a-way
    Every Halloween
    You can hear me say:
    "goblin girl, take it away..."

    Wit de goblin
    De goblin girl
    From da mystery world

    (trick or treat now...etc)
    Talkin' 'bout the bad girls
    All the goblin girls
    Talkin' 'bout the bad, bad girls
    The little goblin girls
    Some are called Doreen
    Some are dressed in green
    They're tricking your treat
    But they're bad girls
    They're very bad girls
    (leprechaun light...etc.)
    They make your face look like
    You got scales on it
    But that's okay...
    When the green light shines down
    On the black guys in the band
    Everybody in the audience
    Thinks they're seeing something
    That looks like it's made out of
    Fish skin
    But Coy leaves the green gels in the truss
    Because he knows the guys in the front
    Really enjoy looking like they've got
    Scales all over their body...
