Lyrics

Pumpkins grow
Pumpkins
Pumpkins grow

Pumpkins grow
Pumpkins
Pumpkins grow

Pumpkins grow
Pumpkins
Pumpkins grow

This is the house of plants
They're on the table top
They grow DNA like you and me

This is the house of plants
They're growing round your neck
They're growing through your skin
Honey can't you see?

Welcome to the _______ party
Neatly self dividing into three parts
The soul disappears
The body just rots
But the person remains growing out of you and me

This is the house of plants
They're growing round your neck
They're gonna follow you all up the stairs

This is the house of plants
Nothing that you expect
They're gonna reproduce just like your hairs

This is the house of plants
Summon the tiny seeds
They're just standing safely in the dark

Here comes a pumpkin head
He wants to be your friend
He wants to scoop your brains out with some _____

Welcome to the _______ party
Neatly self dividing into three parts
The soul disappears
The body just rots
But you can't get away from the personality

This is the house of plants
Some of them very big
They're gonna grow around all of your discs

Here comes a pumpkin head
He wants to be your friend
He wants to scoop your brains out with a whisk
