Jack o' Lantern, with your eyes so bright

And your mouth stretched in a smile

Will you walk with me tonight

And come to the woods for a while?

No, I'd rather stay right here

Safe on my little porch

I have to protect the children from fear

With my shining torch.

Jack o' Lantern with your pumpkin skin

And your insides all scraped out

Why should you even begin

To protect them from their doubt?

I took the duty to watch and care

When they moved out of the cave

I knew that they would need me to share

And make them feel warm and safe.

Jack o' Lantern put these things away

And walk again in the wild

Shun again the light of day
