♫ Go away, big green monster, go away. [Push your hands away from your body. Monster gesture. Push your hands away from your body.]

Go away, big green monster, go away.
GO AWAY!
Go away, big green monster.
Go away, big green monster.
Go away, big green monster, go away.

Go away, scary witch, go away. [Witch gesture.]
GO AWAY!
Go away, scary witch, go away.
GO AWAY!
Go away, scary witch.
Go away, scary witch.
Go away, scary witch, go away.
GO AWAY!

Go away, black cat, go away. [Cat gesture.]

Classroom Benefits

"Go Away!" is an active song that children learn very quickly. This song can be used anytime, but of course, it goes well with a Halloween theme. Most Halloween songs are very difficult to understand for young children, as is Halloween! This song is super simple, and gives young children a simple phrase they can use that might just keep those tears away on their first Halloween!

Activity Ideas

Print the flashcards for monster, witch, cat, and ghost. Give the children soft fluffy balls or something they can throw at the cards. On each, "Go away!" they can throw one at the appropriate card. At the end of that verse, take that card away and go on to the next verse. 1

At home, this is a great song to sing your child back to sleep after midnight spottings of monsters in the closet or under the bed! 2
