The Nightmare Before Christmas'Twas the night before Halloween, when all through the townMore Like This
Not a creature was stirring, but a man with a frown;
He was king of Halloween Town, which makes Halloween
And causes a night of fear to have it's gleam;
Twas filled with ghouls and monsters and ghosts,
But that's not what you'd be frightened of most;
It's the man with the frown, not quite human himself,
But a skeleton named Jack, a corpse of his former self,
He was sick of the horror, the candy and fright,
When he suddenly found a most glorious sight!

Not in the least bit scary, or darkened or gory.
The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the luster of mid-day to objects below,
When, what to his wondering eyes should appear,
But a man wearing red, and with a long white beard.
Jack then got an idea, and so lively and quick
