The Great Bonfire

The great bonfire at Halloween The biggest one you’ve ever seen You can warm up to its great fear Scariest time of all the year Evil that drives them did careen The fright is the best that has been We found that the bonfire is mean Creatures that come out aren’t that dear The great bonfire Monsters of the dark do redeem They aren’t exactly what they seem They exit the fire from the rear To party this night, friends are near Fear lives on now it’s Halloween The great bonfire
