Mozart's Halloween Aria

In honor of my 1 year anniversary on the forum, I am 'immortalizing' the text of the trick-or-treat aria I love so much.

Don't mind me

I'm ok

standing here by your tree

Halloween

Halloween

I am not a normal woman

my eyeballs are white

I am deceased...

aaaaaaand yet I'm waaaaaalking waaaaaaaalking around

your home.

I'm a zomby!

Dead, but living--

and that's why my hair's a fright!

yes, my skin is falling off

and my dress is stained with blood!

don't be afraid.

Give me chocolate

and I'll bother you no more.

I don't want a Butterfinger!

Snickers!

or--ugh!--

a bag of licorice!!!

Or you'll find some rolls of toilet paper in your trees!

Toilet paper in your trees!!!

Dark chocolate, please.

I'll wait

while you go find some.

[Credits: sung to the tune of an aria from Mozart's "The Magic Flute," though I don't know which; sung by "the masked soprano" (Maria Jette) on the radio programme "Prairie Home Companion". http://prairiehome.publicradio.org/programs/2006/09/09/

36 min and 19 seconds into the show. The words are funny enough, but her performance really is indescribable.]
