The Switch Witch is Coming! The Switch Witch is Coming!
The Switch Witch
Halloween draws near – but a day away. Have you heard the news? Have you heard, I say?
The moon is just right; it will be perfect this night. The Switch Witch is coming, she’s coming all right.
We all love our candy, some more than others.
But the Switch Witch loves it more, even more than most mothers.
She is sweet for a witch, so sweet indeed. So sweet is this witch that she has only one need.
One thing she’ll eat, one thing and one only – that one thing is sugar, not beans or baloney.
For breakfast and lunch; for snack or for brunch; its candy she’ll munch and she’ll munch a bunch.
Now her teeth are all rotten and most have fallen out, her blood sugars high and she’s gotten the gout.
But sugar she wants and sugar she’ll get. She’ll eat all that you give her; she’ll eat it all I bet.
The Switch Witch is coming, this year it’s for sure. She’s run out of candy and is in need of some more.
She’s clever this witch and knows when to come.
It’s candy she wants and knows where to find some.
She knows which night and which house and which littles
have collected more Kit-Kats, Blow-Pops and yes, Skittles.
She’s not just sweet, this Switch Witch, this maid; she’s smart and she’s cunning and ready to trade.
She’ll trade you for candy, that’s the deal that she’s made.
She’s loaded with toys and neat stuff you’ll like. Candy for a trinket, a boat or a bike?
Well maybe not a bike, but you’ll be happy; you’ll see.
I’d trade candy for cool stuff in a second, but that’s me.
Just pick out the pieces you’ll want for yourself. Stick them away, hidden up high on a shelf.
Place the rest of your booty in a brown paper bag. Cinch with a black ribbon, a black sash or black rag.
She’ll happily switch your bag for another; and maybe the same for a sister or brother.
Leave the bag on the table and jump into bed. The Switch Witch is coming just like I just said.

p.s. I heard that the Switch Witch has made a special deal with The Team at FFC: The kids can bring their “trade bags” in to the office and pick-up a Switch Witch Gift Bag this week and next.
