In a witches hat and dress
Monique went door to door,
But didn't quite exactly get
What she was hoping for:
Instead of sweets and tasty treats
She got a bag of beans,
A bar of soap, a slice of bread,
A tin of ten sardines,
A wrinkled prune, a chunk of cheese,
Two bruised and browning pears,
A toothbrush that was slightly used
And lots of funny stares.
And as Monique walked home she thought
While nibbling on her prune,
"It's not the same when trick or treating
On the first of June."
