10 – 8 – 6 – 4 – 2 – 0
here’s my little count back song
10 – 8 – 6 – 4 – 2 – 0
hope you all can sing along

Ding-dong, trick or treat,
Give me something good to eat
Ding-dong, trick or treat
I got ten sweet treats to eat!

I went trick or treating
and I got ten treats
10 treats 10 treats yummy yum!
But then I saw a ghost and said we better run!
10 treats run, 10 treats run

Then something strange happened that Halloween night,=
I looked in my bag and I got a big fright
Instead of 10 sweet treats, what did I see?
Only 8 treats, how could this be?
Only 8 treats, how could this be?

10 – 8 – 6 – 4 – 2 – 0
I think my treats were counting back by twos from ten
You got that right, let’s say it again!

I used to have ten treats in my stack
10 – 8 – 6 – 4 – 2 – 0
But now my treats were counting back
Count back what a mess
I got more treats, but I counted less
2 treats seem to disappear,
Each time I count that’s what I fear…

I went trick or treating there were 8 treats left
8 treats 8 treats yummy yum!
But then I saw a ghost and said we better run!
8 treats run, 8 treats run!

Instead of 8 sweet treats, what did I see?

Only 6 treats, how could this be?

Now when I got home, I checked them again,
What did I see? Treats up to 10!
10 treats were there,
Like one for each toe!
Where had they gone? I’ll never quite know!
A Halloween mystery, like a real scary dream,
On Halloween eve, things are not what they seem…
