Music: 
Halloween or TV theme song
Tracks that are about 1:23 long from most Halloween or TV theme song CDs will work.
Note that there is no intro--the dance starts immediately.
This step sheet was written by Lisa McCammon and corresponds to the distinctive and familiar music.
Start with weight on left foot.

First da-da-da-dum, facing front [12]
1-8: Step R to side, close L, snap 2X; repeat
1-8: Step R to side, close L, step R, close L, step R, TOUCH L, snap 2X
1-16: Da-da-da-dum music repeats, so do the first 16 steps starting to the left, ending weight L

Verse 1 ("They're creepy and they're kookie," etc.)
1-8: Vine R, touch; vine L, touch
1-4: Walk fwd R, L, step, turn 1/2 L [6]
