Description
I wanted to take part in the Halloween challenge. I had a 4 chord progression I was playing around with that I liked so I used that throughout most of the song.

Lyrics
It was October 31 and I was ready to go
Put on my camouflage pants, cause I was GI joe
I went from door to door I was so very glad
And when they opened up, this is what I said:

Trick or treat
Now give me something good to eat
Or you can smell my feet
They are a sight to see
So better you than me

I don't want no fruit or veggies
And please don't you give me pennies
You know what I need
Just give me the sweets

At my final stop, I was in a groove
I rang the bell five times because the curtain moved
I opened the door and yelled don't you hide
Cause I'm hungry for candy
And I won't be denied

But what I saw inside made me turn and flee
It was a werewolf running straight at me
I closed the door right up and I ran through the fog
And then a voice called out
I see you've met my dog

Such
a cute set of lyrics. I could hear the Kingston Trio performing this. That's a throwback style, for sure and you nailed it. Thanks.

Trick or treat
Clever - moves very gently but the words capture a scary childlike feeling. Good one!

The
"smell my feet" part was something we used to say as a joke when trick or treating when I was a child. And yes, the chords worked for ending it on a little "Heart and Soul" melody, Thanks

GI Joe Jr.
Fun song with a nostalgic 50s feel (except for the bridge which I peg in the 60s with an almost Beatles like progression). The light atmosphere is supported by a clean mix and some solid musicianship in the guitar and voice. I like this one a lot since it instantly brings forth a smile.

Thanks!
Doug

Hey Doug
As a long time Beatles fan, I guess their influence comes out in some of my songwriting. Thanks for taking the time to listen and comment.
