Happy Halloween to All

Excerpt from Little Orphant Annie

An' one time a little girl 'ud allus laugh an' grin,
An'make fun of ever'one an' all her blood an' kin;
An' onc't when they was "company", an' ole folkes was there,
She mocked 'em an' shocked 'em and said she didn't care!
An' thist as she kicked her heels, an' turn't to run an' hide,
They was two great big Black Things a' standin' by her side,
An' they snatched her through the ceilin' 'fore she knowed what she's about!
An' the Gobble-uns 'll git you
Ef you
Don't
Watch
Out!
