  1. Thanks for posting these! My grandmother would play these for me when I was a kid and it has been years since I heard them. Great to experience them again! Jason

    1. I’ve got a friend who’s big and round and oh so jolly, gee whiz.
      Lend me your ear and you will hear just who this fellow is.

      He’s Punky Punkin’ the happy pumpkin, happy all the day,
      And his great big smile will chase your cares away.
      (Chase them away, away!)

      Punky Punkin’ the happy pumpkin never wears a frown.
      You can see that he’s cut out to be a clown.
      (Oh, what a clown is he!)

      The candle light inside him makes his eyes light up and gleam.
      They shine right through the window at you for a hap- hap- happy Halloween.
      Punky Punkin’s a happy pumpkin, and do you know why?
      ‘cause he’s a jack-o-lantern instead of bein’ a pumpkin pie.

      The candle light inside him makes his eyes light up and gleam.
      They shine right through the window at you for a hap- hap- happy Halloween.
      Punky Punkin’s a happy pumpkin, and do you know why?
      ‘cause he’s a jack-o-lantern instead of bein’ a pumpkin pie.

      He’s Punky Punkin’ the happy pumpkin, happy all the day,
      And his great big smile will chase your cares away.
      (Chase them away, away!)

      Punky Punkin’ the happy pumpkin never wears a frown.
      You can see that he’s cut out to be a clown.
      (Oh, what a clown is he!)

      The candle light inside him makes his eyes light up and gleam.
      They shine right through the window at you for a hap- hap- happy Halloween.
      Punky Punkin’s a happy pumpkin, and do you know why?
      ‘cause he’s a jack-o-lantern instead of bein’ a pumpkin pie.
      Yes, he’s a jack-o-lantern instead of bein’ a pumpkin pie.
