    This is just for fun. One of my actors and I were talking about through-put and timing the other night. At some point he said "You got to know when to boo them and you got to know when to shoo them", and he instantly realized he had a song parody. So he wrote this song sung to the tune of Kenny Roger's "The Gambler" . Its called "The Haunter". Enjoy....

    On a cold October evening
    In house that was long abandoned
    I met up with a haunter
    He was looking for spooky stuff to keep
    So we took turns a digging
    Through the rubble for creepy objects
    As the wind blew through broken windows
    He began to speak

    He said son I've made a life
    Out of scaring people shitless
    Gettin' all inside their heads
    And makin' them run and cry
    So if you don't mind me speaking
    Over the wind and house a creakin'
    If you help me carry out this box of stuff
    I'll give you some advice

    The box proved to be quite heavy
    As we carried it to his chevy
    So we stopped to take break
    Before lifting it to his trunk
    And then he broke the silence
    Saying forget the gore and violence
    If you want to run a haunt boy
    You better learn to run it right

    You've got to know when to BOO 'em
    Know when to shoo 'em
    Know when block and act
    Know when they need to run
    You know they've paid for a top notch scare
    So they better be sure to find it there
    Because they'll be posting all over Facebook
    When the haunting's done

    Every haunter knows
    That the secret to a good scare
    Is picking out your target
    When the group goes walking by
    I know it seems outrageous
    But fear is quite contagious
    And if you break their strong man
    Then whole group will scream and cry

    And when when he'd finished speaking
    With much moaning and bone creaking
    He straightened up and stretched his back
    And shut the trunk up tight
    I watched as he drove back through the old woods
    Before going back to collect my own goods
    I knew that the words that he gave me
    Were the best finds of the night

    You've got to know when to BOO them
    Know when to shoo them
    Know just when block and act
    And know when they need to run
    You know they've paid for a top notch scare
    So they better be sure to find it there
    Because they will be posting all over Facebook
    When the haunting's done
