lyrics

Gather round folks, Gather around to hear a most unusual tale.
Aaah!
You see one almost certainly knows what to expect from wolves, or spiders, or devils.
Aaah!
But sometimes even the friendliest character has something evil hidden up his sleeve.
Aaah!
1,2,3 1,2,3!

There was a magician who traveled along pulling out tricks of all kinds,
From the hat that he took from the top of his head he entertained curious minds,
He performed his act for beautiful girls who giggled and squealed at his cunning,
But when they saw the saw that he hid they usually went running!

Hocus Pocus! Ala Kazam! Abra Kadabra! We have a cadaver!
Hocus Pocus! Ala Kazam! Abra Kadabra! We have a cadaver!
Now she’ll disappear!

With a slight of his hand and a twist of fate a certain young maid walked in through the gate,
The magician could see something special in her and the crafty fox had a scheme,
HA HA HA!
With smoke and with mirrors he pulled from his hat a ring with a curious jewel,
He traded this treat for a trick because he could see the girl was a fool.

Hocus Pocus! Ala Kazam! Abra Kadabra! We have a cadaver!
Hocus Pocus! Ala Kazam! Abra Kadabra! We have a cadaver!
Now she’ll disappear!

1,2,3 1,2,3!

“You will be my assistant!” the magic man said, “Here step into this box!
If you are good and do as you should I’ll reward you with dresses and frocks!”
But once she was in he said with a grin, “forgive me my dear for this sin!” He pulled out a jagged zig zaggity blade and said, “Now let the show begin!”

Hocus Pocus! Ala Kazam! Abra Kadabra! We have a cadaver!
Hocus Pocus! Ala Kazam! Abra Kadabra! We have a cadaver!
Now she’ll disappear!
Now she’ll disappear!
Now she’ll disappear!
Tada!
