Get dressed for street mayhem
Green makeup from patty’s day
Old coat and wig, tights, fun hat
Ready to glide like the silver surfer
But on a bike as a troll with tights
More like a bum on a tricycle
A bike will fall over and get walked on.
A tricycle becomes a tripping hazard
Left unattended in a mob, what a parade.
Dummies, rummies, weirdoes and pie
Puppets on stilts, people with string
New York’s Halloween street party
I will just dip and dash at the edges
Who, what? and what? and what?
It marches, look! Crash, skirt in the air
Oh, the parade at night of fright and fun
Halloween on feet or wheels
Lets carry eels to a party naked!
You’ll just have to see it to know
Ignore the barricades and join
The lingering spectator trash.
Its over too soon on the street
Long parties into the night
Crowds on the subways
