"Skin and Bones"

       
  1. There was an old woman all skin and bones,
Oo-oo-oo-ooh!
 
 
2.
She lived down by the old graveyard,
Oo-oo-oo-ooh!
 
  3. One night she thought she'd take a walk,
Oo-oo-oo-ooh!
 
  4. She walked down by the old graveyard,
Oo-oo-oo-ooh!
 
  5. She saw the bones a-layin' around,
Oo-oo-oo-ooh!
 
  6. She went to the closet to get a broom,
Oo-oo-oo-ooh!
 
  7. She opened the door and BOO!!
