THE MONSTER MASH (BSE-style)

* Don’t read – sing along to the tune of The Monster Mash by Bobby Pickett. Or groan if virtual sing-a-longs aren’t your thing. (hahaha!)

Our Bobcats went school, all week long
Their excitement grew as the days dragged on
They simply couldn’t wait for Friday night
When their friends would all gather to create a sight
They planned and they plotted, both girls and guys
And descended upon the school in disguise!

They came to Mash, The Monster Mash
The Monster Mash, it was a Friday night smash
They came to Mash, and it was quite the bash
They came to Mash, The Monster Mash!

Over 700 kids showed up for fun
And FUN they all had – each and every one
They tricked and they treated, all night long
And we gave out so much candy – 10,000 pieces!  Gone!

They came to Mash, The Monster Mash
The Monster Mash, it was a Friday night smash
They came to Mash, and it was quite the bash
They came to Mash, The Monster Mash!

Most attendees weren’t daunted
By the house that was haunted
Once again the lines long were long - like outta sight
As Bobcats lined up to get a haunted fright

They came to Mash, The Monster Mash
The Monster Mash, it was a Friday night smash
They came to Mash, and it was quite the bash
They came to Mash, The Monster Mash!

Our awesome DJ spun every best song
And many, many Bobcats danced all night long
The gym was rocking hard – they even did The Twist
Hundreds of Bobcats dancing – now that shouldn’t be missed!

They came to Mash, The Monster Mash
The Monster Mash, it was a Friday night smash
They came to Mash, and it was quite the bash
They came to Mash, The Monster Mash!

Our Bobcats sure love cake and other baked goodies
Yes! The Cake Walk was back – putting minds at ease
And so many happy winners squealed in sheer delight
As they ran to grab their sweet winnings at the end of the night
Our Bobcats also grabbed some icing and candy
To decorate some cookies – making 500+ look mighty dandy

If you missed the fun – don’t be filled with dread
There’s sure to be another one – about a year ahead!
Then you can Mash, at The Monster Mash!
The Monster Mash, it will be a smash!
The Monster Mash ’17 is coming in a flash!
