Character singing

Episode Lyrics

Tyrone: I'm decidin'...
A place to hide in...
Then jump out and say boo.

Wanna be ghostly,
But I'm mostly...
A scaredy-moose, it's true!

All my ghost friends...
they're all scary and tough.
But I'm nervous...
And not spooky enough!

'Cause when I'm booin'...
Oh, when I'm booin'...
The other ghosts all laugh at me!

Tasha: (speaking) Ghost?

Uniqua: (speaking) Where could he be?

Pablo: (speaking) I don't know.

Tasha: (speaking) Maybe he's upstairs?

Soundtrack-exclusive lyrics

Tyrone: When you're booin'...
When you're booin'...
You're supposed to cause real fright.

But when I do it...
Folks see right through it...
I just can't do it right.

Folks should freak out...
When they see a real ghost,
But I'm harmless...
As a piece of cold toast.

When I'm booin'...
Oh, when I'm booin'...
The other ghosts all laugh at me!

Episode Lyrics

When I'm booin'...
Don't know what I'm doin'...
The other ghosts all laugh at me!
