Lyrics

The Legend of Sleepy Hollow!
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow!
A tale that everyone should know
Full of laughs, intrigue, and woe
So ready? Set! Here we go
With the Legend of Sleepy Hollow!


Way back in our colonial day
In the war to set us free,
The British brought their troops our way
To take our liberty!
A Hessian Soldier of no name
The British lads did follow,
The Hessian soldier's story became
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow!


The Legend of Sleepy Hollow!
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow!
The Hessian's soldier's story became
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow!


The Hessian rode in battle tall
On a horse called Old Big Red;
And a legend says a cannonball
Replaced the Hessian's head!
But here's the part that does enthrall
Though it is hard to swallow
The Hessian didn't croak at all,
But stayed in Sleepy Hollow!
He stayed in Sleepy Hollow!
He stayed in Sleepy Hollow!
The Hessian didn't croak at all
He stayed in Sleepy Hollow!


To this day in the dark of night
When most folks are a'bed,
The headless Hessian takes his flight
On top of Old Big Red;
Thru road and field and ridge he'll lurch
Old pathways he will follow,
To find his head he'll search and search
Then over the bridge just by the church


He'll vanish right into the night
Somewhere in Sleepy Hollow!


Somewhere in Sleepy Hollow!
Somewhere in Sleepy Hollow!
When decent folks are all a'bed,
The Hessian rides on Old Big Red
Forever searching for his head
Somewhere in Sleepy Hollow!
