(To the tune of: Farmer in the Dell)
The witches stir their brew.
The witches stir their brew.
They throw in all their magic things.
The witches stir their brew.
The witches find their cats.
The witches find their cats.
They put them out upon the fence.
The witches find their cats.
The witches get their brooms.
The witches get their brooms.
They dust them off and “start” them up
The witches get their brooms.
The witches now all leave.
The witches now all leave.
They’re just in time; it’s Halloween.
The witches now all leave
