Another Halloween eve just around the bend;
a time for fun so please employ a good friend.
Many strange things happen Halloween night,
so plan ahead to make this eve work out right.
Do not take chances; the wrath might get you.
Everyone approaching doesn't just say "BOO".
It could be a state trooper and flashing lights.
doing his police work, reading you your rights.
So once again about the friend you might use.
It'll be a good plan if you're sipping the booze.
Give up your keys early before the night's end
to someone who's a good "non-drinking" friend.
Keep a DUI off the record, out of the reports
and don't go straight to jail or visit the courts.
We'd all love for you to enjoy life and survive;
be responsible and wise; remain safe and alive!
