I'll tell you a story of a love and his flame you've read about him he's Ichabot Crane
He went a courtin' one night on his horse and Sleepy Hollow they both had to cross
While ridin' and thinkin' bout the girl he would wed
It was there that old Ichabot lost his head
Across Sleepy Hollow a horseman did follow and follow and follow poor Ichabot Crane
Don't want to end up like Ichabot Crane who lost his head and went up in the flame
Sleepy Hollow I'm gonna evade that was the mistake that poor Ichabot made
I'm a losin' my head and startin' to burn ain't any too smart but I'm willin' to learn
You can't talk me in to a staying out late that was poor Ichabot's biggest mistake
Across Sleepy Hollow a horseman did follow and follow and follow poor Ichabot Crane
[ guitar ]
In the legend of Sleepy Hollow tis said the horseman had a pumpkin for a head
My head may be sore and I may not be bright
Just one more little kiss and that's all for tonight
I'm afraid that your kisses will drive me insane and I'll end up like Ichabot Crane
I'm a headin' right home and a jumpin' in bed
That's the best way I know to hang on to my head
Across Sleepy Hollow your mem'ry will follow and follow and follow this Ichabot Crane
