Jack-o-Lantern. . Jack-o-Lantern
You are such a funny sight
As you sit in the window
Looking out at the night
Once you were a yellow pumpkin
Growing on a sturdy vine
Now you are a Jack-o-Lantern
Let the candle light shine.

I sang the pumpkin song in kindergarten. I use to sing it to my sons father. Years later when he was feeling blue. He would call me and say "can you sing the pumpkin song pleeease" 😀

Just watched a movie where they used the term "Jack O Lantern". This song popped back in my head. I first sang it in kindergarten (1970)! ; ) Googled it because my teenage kids did not think it was a "real" song. Ha!

I sang this song when I was 5 or 6, when I trick-or-treated and someone said "trick!" the first line I learned was a little different: Jack-o-lantern, Jack-o-lantern you are such a lovely sight, as you sit there in the window, looking out at the night... I can still remember the tune. :)

I love this song! But I never heard of Jack-O-lantern! This maybe the first halloween song I ever heard with just eight lines.

I lived in Ohio from 1983 to 1985. I was only 5 year-old boy, so now I've forgotten almost everything in USA...but this song takes me back. I feel close to tears...I miss my sweet, good old days!

Awwah, I loved this song in grade school. I was just singing it today to my little one and they really enjoyed it. Wish the grade schools still did things like that in music classes!
