about

Arthur Johnston and Johnny Burke
(From the musical comedy film “Pennies from Heaven”, 1936)

lyrics

Spooks were havin' their midnight fling
The merry makin' was in full swing
They shrieked themselves into a cheerful trance
When the skeleton in the closet starts his dance

A goblin giggled with fiendish glee
A shout rang out from a big banshee
Amazement was in every ghostly glance
When the skeleton in the closet started to dance

All the witches were in stitches
While his steps made rhythmic thumps
And they nearly dropped their broomsticks
When he tried to do the bumps

You never heard such unearthly laughter
Such hilarious groans
When the skeleton in the closet rattled his bones
