I hope you do not mind, but I used this image in a blog post describing my 1.5 year old's imitation of this scene by trying to take off her daddy's head. I credited you for it, linking back to this very page.  If this is a problem, please let me know via email ( and I will remove it.

There are few who deny at what I do I am the best,
For my talents are aknown far and wide.
When it comes to surprises in the moonlit night, I excell without ever even trying.
With the slightest little effort of my ghost-like charms, I have seen grown men give out a shreak.
With the wave of my hand and a well placed moan, I have swept the very bravest off their feet.
Yet, year after year, it's the same routine,
And I grow so weary of the sound of screams.
And I Jack, the Pumpkin King, have grown so tired of the same old thing...
Oh, somewhere deep inside of these bones,
an emptiness began to grow.
There's something out there far from my home.
A longing that I'll never know.
I'm a master of fright, and a demon of light.
And I could scare you right out of your pants.
To a guy in Kentucky, I'm mister unlucky,
and I'm known throughout England and France.
And since I am dead, I can take off my head, to recite, Shakspeream quotations.
No animal, nor man can scream like I can,
With the fury of my rescientations.
But who here would ever understand, that the Pumpkin King, with a skeleton grin,
Would tire of his crown? If they only understood.
He'd give it all up, if he only couuuuuuuld.
Oh, there's an empty place in my bones that calls out for something unknown.
The fame and praise come year after year,
Does nothing for... these empty tears.....
