The Horror Honeys: Spooky Kid Saturday Jam ~ 'Grim Grinning Ghosts'

Spooky Kid Saturday Jam ~ 'Grim Grinning Ghosts'


When the crypt goes creak
And the tombstones quake
Spooks come out for a swinging wake
Happy haunts materialize
And begin to vocalize
Grim grinning ghosts come out to socialize
Now don't close your eyes
And don't try to hide
Or a silly spook may sit by your side
Shrouded in a daft disguise
They pretend to terrorize
Grim grinning ghosts come out to socialize


Like many spooky kids, I spent a good portion of childhood brainstorming ways I could move into Disney World's Haunted Mansion ride. On one family trip, I even tried to jump out of the "doom buggie" to frolic among the singing heads in the cemetery. (Note... that's frowned upon).

However, despite my inability to join the 999 other happy haunts, the Haunted Mansion has remained my favorite ride in the park. On more than one occasion, I would just get on and off the ride for as long as I could stand being herded like cattle in line. And while I can't visit the "Happiest Place on Earth" as often as I'd like, the ride's theme song, "Grim Grinning Ghosts," is all the reminding I need of the "Creepiest Ride on Earth."

So enjoy your Spooky Kid Jam, and as always...
