There's a chill in the air.
You hear a creak on the stairs.
You've got a knock on your doors.
Is there anybody out?

They're out to get you to capture you and make you spell about.
Howling and prowling, you're shivering, quivering, spell about...

You cannot run, and you cannot hide.
Yeah, you gotta face it, baby, things go bump in the night.
Wherever you run and wherever you hide,
Yeah, you gotta face it, baby, things go bump,bump, bump in the night.

Tell me, who's spooking who?
It's very Scooby Doo.
You hear a shriek in the house.
You know, it's freaking me out.


You cannot run, and you cannot hide.
Yeah, you gotta face it, baby, things go bump, bump, bump in the night.
