Have you seen the ghost of Tom?
Long white bones with the skin all gone.
Po-oo-or Old Tom!
Wouldn't it be chilly with no skin on?

    It is aposed to be
    Have you seen the ghost of tom
    Eyes bug out and a nose to long
    Big scary teeth and a shiny white chin
    Only one cheek to keep the tongue in
