This Halloween there's something new -
This sweet surprise we call a "BOO"!
Red & Yellow left it here
To bring a bit of "ghostly" cheer.
It's not a fright, it's not a scare ...
It's just a secret smile to share.
You've been "BOO'D"! It's your turn now
To pass it on ... we'll tell you how.
Choose a neighbor, friend, or anyone
Who needs some special "spooky" fun;
And when you've made your secret pick,
Let Red & Yellow do the "trick"!
Put a "goody" bag beside the door;
Include this poem, and one thing more -
Some M&M'S, for candy fun -
Now Red & Yellow's "BOO" is done!
Don't sign your name, don't leave a clue;
'Cause that's the "magic" of a "BOO"!
Enjoy the latest, greatest way
To celebrate the holiday.
With Red & Yellow on your team,
This Halloween will be a "scream"!
It's easy and it's fun to do ...
Let's spread the joy and share a "BOO"!
