Many thanks to our dear friend Sal for sharing this gem of a song with us!
Here are the lyrics, abundantly able to adapt to whatever spooky situations may ensue:
Something’s yowling in the woods out there (2x)
Refrain: I’m not scared & I’m safe inside, I’m not scared but I think I’ll hide
Something’s scratching out on the back porch (2x)
Something’s crawling down the old chimney (2x)
I (hi, Petra here!) learned this song from a cassette (!) of children’s rounds which I wish I remembered the name of! It was a treasure trove of silly ditties & here are the lyrics to this one:

She lived down by the old graveyard
One night she thought she’d take a walk
She walked down by the old graveyard
She saw the bones a-laying around
She went to the closet to get a broom
She opened the door and…
Spread the love!
Hope to sing with you here on the farm one day ~
