Rose Tea Cottage

Where tea is served at half past four




Hope your Halloween is one big treat!

Ghost so scary
Ghost so white
Don't scare the Duchess
On Halloween night

I'm a big orange pumpkin fat and round
Growin' by the corn field on the ground
I will be a Jack-o-lantern with two big eyes
Or maybe I'll be baked into two pumpkin pies

Ghosts and goblins, cats and bats
We're not afraid of this or that!!

Never eat your treats
Till they're checked
Show them to Mummy
Make sure they're safe

It`s Halloween!
The moon is full and bright
And we shall see what can`t be seen
on any other night

Halloween Cat Halloween Cat
Why do you Meow and Meow like that?
Neither I nor the moon like your tune !

In the sky on Halloween
Many funny things are seen
Bats and ghosts and goblins too
Hope they don't come after you

Witching You a Spook-Tea-Liciously Sweet Halloween
