...yeah. Sue me. For being ludicrously late, for being terrifyingly typical, and for being audaciously alliterative.


SARAH
Look out around you, Demi,
Can't you see what you're missing out on?
There's plenty of fun to be had
If you'll just step out of your basement!

DEMI
I can't, Vespasian will know that -

SARAH
Forget about him! Why worry 'bout
Your bothersome brother, when there's
Loads of wonders beyond the door?

SARAH and JENNACINE
Warty witches, strawberry sweets,
Bedsheet "Boo!"s and luminous lanterns,
Puking pumpkins, rotting revolutionaries -
It's that time of the year again!
It's Hallowe'en!

JENNACINE (spoken)
C'mon, Demi, don't you want it?

DEMI (spoken)
I... I don't know. I mean,

(sung)
I bet it'll be grand, traipsing around
The neigbourhood in fancy dress,
With peacock feathers and shimmering gems,
But there's nothing scarier that makes me warier
Than him...

JENNACINE
Oh, Demi, wake up and try to endeavour to
Forget that old git, and just have some fun!
We'll do all sorts of freaktacular stuff,
And nothing's more awesome for someone so lonesome
As you...

SARAH and JENNACINE
Sparkly streamers, bouncy balloons,
Dashing dandies and bloodthirsty barbers,
Phooey phantoms, almost-crazy alley cats,
It's that time of the year again!
It's Hallowe'en!

SARAH
Oh, Demi, don't you want a taste of life?

SARAH, JENNACINE, and DEMI
Cackling clowns, riotous ravens,
Wandering wizzards and fabulous flappers,
Plundering pirates and malevolent masquerades -
It's that time of the year!
The time we've always wanted, here!
Yes, that time of the year, again!
It's Hallowe'en!
