A#m F/A There are few who'd deny
C#/G# Gm9b5 At what I do I am the best
F# F D#m For my talents are renowned far and wide
C C#dim7 When it comes to suprises
C/E D#m/A# On a moonlit night
C7 F7 I excel without ever even trying
D#m A#7 With the slightest little effort
D#m Fdim Of my ghost like charms
D#m E I have seen grown men give out a shriek
G#dim D#m With the wave of my hand
A#7 D#m And a well placed moan
A#7 D#m I have swept the very bravest off their feet
A#7 Bm Yet year after year
E D#dim7 It's the same routine
A# And I grow so weary
D#dim7 A#7/F Of the sound of screams
F#dim7 And I
D#mJACK..THE PUMPKIN KING
B7 A#7 F#dim Have grown so tired of the same
D#dim old
A# thing

Am Bdim Am/C Ddim And since I am dead, I can take off my head
Am A# To recite Shakesperean quotations
Ddim7 Am E7 Am No animal nor man can SCREAM like I can
E7 Am With the fury of my recitations
E7 Fm A# Adim7 But who here would ever understand
E7 Am6 E7/B That the Pumpkin King with the skeleton grin
Cdim7 Am F#m/C# Would tire of his crown, If they only
C#7 F#m understood
D7 C#7 F#m D He'd give it all up, if he only
C#b9 C#(no5)could....
Fdim7 Am B7/A F#mOh theres an empty place in my bones
