A pumpkin had a runny nose.

As runny as can be.

He went to Dr. Frankenstein

Who gave him buckets of weeds.

The pumpkin was as sick as can be.

A witch gave him snails and a snake.

He went to bed and rubbed his head,

But he still had a stomachache.

There once was a lady who swallowed a pumpkin seed.

A few days later her tummy grew bigger and bigger 'til she couldn't

She went to the doctor, the doctor said,

"I do not know what is wrong with you."

The lady went home to wonder why.

The pumpkin came out

And she had pumpkin pie.

One night Jack the Pumpkin,

Sat on a window sill.

"Hi, Jack," said the cat.

"There goes your meal the rat," said Jack.

"I'd better get that rat," said the cat.

Along came a bat.

"Hi, Jack," said the bat.

"What are you doing?" said Jack.

"Eating insects and getting fat!"

But there was a problem.

So I didn't know what to do.

Then a miracle surprise,

My sister's pumpkin shrank.

And I won the prize.

Big Pumpkin

The pumpkin in my garden

Grew and grew and grew.

When I tried to pick it up,

Splat! Up it blew.

The Witch had a big pumpkin.

The pumpkin grew and grew.

The pumpkin got so big, the witch picked it.

She carved it into a Jack-o-lantern.

Another Witch came along and smashed it.

She picked another pumpkin.

She carved it up again.

The jack-o-lantern didn't get smashed.

It was a good Halloween.

Pumpkin Town

I had a great big pumpkin.

I said to my dog Rumpkin,

"It's so big it squashed the garden."

I'll chop it down

And build a town.

Candy Stealer

A pumpkin was following me Halloween night.

He tried to steal my candy.

I ran away as fast as I could using my flashlight.

I ran to my friend Sandy.

The pumpkin ran faster and I fell in some plaster.

And he stole all of my candy.
