Mr. Ghost Goes to Town
The 5 Jones Boys Lyrics


Who's there, who's there?
Up there on the stairs
Beware, beware
I hear somebody coming

Up on his toes
Oh look, there he goes
Mr. Ghost is going to town

He takes his cane
His gloves and his hat
And like a cat
He hurries down the alley

The moon is bright
And this is the night
When Mr. Ghost is going to town

He's feeling great
And he can't be late
He's got a date
To do a little stepping

He'll shake his bones
To hot saxophones
'Cause Mr. Ghost is going to town

Ha ha ha ha
I'm Mr. Ghost
Tonight I'm gonna shake my bones
To the tune of them hot saxophones
Ha ha
Mr. Ghost goes to town
Ha ha

He's feeling great
And he can't be late
He's got a date
To do a little stepping
He'll shake his bones
To hot saxophones
'Cause Mr. Ghost is going to town

Woah. Just Found Out William Bartley was my great grandfather. I'm a gutarist myself but never knew music was in my familys history. I dig the music too

How cool is that? Congratulations! This was pure talent in the day.

My all-time favorite Halloween record. Its atmosphere (all done a capella), its playful lyrics, and its melody with just the right combination of fun and spooky pretty much sum up what I've loved about Halloween since I was a little boy.

The definitive version of this song. 100% vocals. No instruments.

It's also the tune used for the famous organ in the film "The Ghost and Mr. Chicken".  This tune is also used in the main titles of the same film.

This is definitely one of my favorite oldies! Have to listen to it every Halloween. Sometimes it'll pop in my head from nowhere and just stick there. I love the "Mr. Ghost" laughing part in the middle.

I heard this song last night on the radio and went insane!! SO GREAT!

Natya Lusarova

Which radio station were you listening? I wish I knew radio stations that play this kind of music!

Isabel Beckerman

One of my all time favorite Halloween songs.
