With a hip-hip and a clippity-clop, He's out looking for a head to swap, But don't try to figure out a plan, You can't reason with a headless man"Ichabod"
Odds bodkins! Gadzooks! Look at that old spook of spooks, Who's that coming down the street? Are they shovels or are they feet? Lean and lanky, Skin and bone, With clothes a scarecrow would hate to own, Yet he has a certain air, Debonair and devil-may-care, It's the new schoolmaster, What's his name? Ichabod, Ichabod Crane, Ichabod, What a name, Kind of odd, But nice just the same, Funny pan, Funny frame, Ichabod, Ichabod Crane, Ichabod may be quaint, May be odd and maybe he ain't, Anyway, There's no complaint, From Ichabod, Ichabod Crane, Though the arrival of the pedagogue gave rise to mixed emotions, The townspeople all agreed they'd never seen anyone like Ichabod, Ichabod Crane"Katrina"
Once you have met that little coquette Katrina, You won't forget Katrina, But nobody yet has ever upset Katrina, That cute coquette Katrina, You can do more with Margaret or Helena, Or Anne or Angelina, But Katrina will kiss and run, To her a romance is fun, With always another one to start, And yet when you've met that little coquette Katrina, You've lost your heart
And yet when you've met that little coquette Katrina, You've lost your heart"Merrily on Our Way (to Nowhere in Particular)"
Are we on our way to Nottingham, To Brittingham, To Buckingham, Or any hammy hamlet by the sea? No! Are we on our way DEvonshire, To Lancashire or Worcestershire? I'm not so sure, We'll have to wait and see, Are we on our way to Dover? Or going merrily over, The jolly old road that goes to Plymouth Ho? No! We're merrily, Merrily, Merrily, Merrily, Merrily, On our way to nowhere in particular, We're merrily, Merrily, Merrily, merrily, Merrily on our way though the roads are perpendicular, We're always in a hurry, We have no time to stall, We've gotta be there, We've gotta be there, But where, We can't recall, We're merrily, Merrily, Merrily, Merrily, Merrily on our way, And we may be going to Devonshire, To Lancashire, To Worcestershire, We're not so sure, But what do we care? We're only sure we've got to be there, We're merrily on our way to nowhere at all"Opening Song"
Ichabod and Mr Toad, Ichabod, Ichabod and Mr Toad, Ichabod, Ichabod and Mr Toad"The Headless Horseman"
When the spooks have a midnight jamboree, They break it up with fiendish glee, Ghosts are bad, But the one that's cursed, Is the Headless Horseman, He's the worst, That's right, He's a fright on Halloween night, When he goes a-joggin' across the land, Holdin' his noggin in his hand, Demons take one look and groan, And hit the road for parts unknown, Beware, Take care, He rides alone, And there's no spool like a spook who's spurned, They don't like him and he's really burned, He swears to the longest day he's dead, He'll show them that he can get ahead, They say he's tired of his flamin' top, He's got a yen to make a swap, So he rides on night each year, To find a head in the hollow here, Now, He likes them little, He likes them big, Part in the middle, Or a wig, Black or white, Or even red, The Headless Horseman needs a head, With a hip-hip and a clippity-clop, He's out lookin' for a top to chop, So don't stop to figure out a plan, You can't reason with a headless man, Now if you doubt this tale is so, I met that spook just a year ago, Now, I didn't stop for a second look, But made for the bridge that spans the brook, For once you cross that bridge, My friends, The ghost is through, His power ends, So when you're riding home tonight, Make for the bridge with all your might, He'll be down in the hollow there, He needs your head, Look out! Beware! With a hip-hip and a clippity-clop, He's out lookin' for a head to swap, So don't try to figure out a plan, You can't reason with a headless man
