FROM DOOR TO DOOR, THE LITTLE BOY ROAMS,
SEARCHING FOR THE SWEETEST CANDY.
AND AT EACH JACK-LANTERN,
HE STOPS TO LOOK INSIDE AND SEE IF HE HAS ENOUGH,
TO SEE IF HE HAS THE BEST CANDY OF ALL.
HE EVEN RETURNS TO ASK FOR MORE
FROM PLACES HE HAS BEEN BEFORE,
STILL WEARING THE SAME OLD DISGUISE.
BUT THEY NEVER GIVE HIM SECONDS AS SWEET AS THE FIRST,
SO ON HE GOES.
AND HE FINDS A LITTLE GIRL,
A LOVELY LITTLE GIRL, ALL DRESSED IN LACE,
WHO WANTS TO SHARE HIS CANDY.
BUT THE SELFISH LITTLE BOY DOESN'T HAVE ENOUGH.
HE MUST GO AND GET SOME MORE.
ON HIS WAY BACK, HE TASTES THE CANDY,
AND FINDS THAT IT ISN'T AS SWEET THE SECOND TIME AROUND.
HE REMEMBERS THE LITTLE GIRL IN LACE AND GOES TO HER
WITH HIS BAG OF GOODIES OVERFLOWING WITH THE TREASURES
HE HAS GATHERED ALONG THE WAY.
AND HE OPENS HIS BAG WIDE FOR THE PRETTY LITTLE GIRL.
BUT PRETTY LITTLE GIRLS CAN BE SELFISH TOO.
SHE REACHES IN AND SCRAPS AWAY
ALL THE LITTLE BOY'S TREASURES.
IT IS TOO LATE NOW AND THE LITTLE BOY MUST GO HOME,
WITH NOTHING TO SHOW BUT AN EMPTY BAG
AND A TEAR IN HIS EYE.
