The Hobgoblins Original Sheet Music Cover
(1905)

Lyrics

Sung by Mombi and Goblins

Mombi:
Shadows are falling,
Screech owls are calling,
Hobgoblins and Sprites appear!

Hobgoblins:
Booh-oo-oo-oo-oo!

Mombi:
Booh!
With pranks so bold,
You shudder to behold,
Then creeping up behind you,
Should they find you,
Then you'd better
Scoot, scoot, scoot!
And if they're jeering,
Then you'd best be fearing,
With devilments, wicked
They're chock full to boot!

So run away
From where the goblins play,
'Mid gloomy shades of night,
To scamper they delight,
To dance with merry tune,
Where shines the ghostly moon,
A howlin' and a scowlin',
You can't run away too soon!

Second Verse
When forests darken,
There if you harken,
You will hear the goblins call!

Hobgoblins:
Booh-oo-oo-oo-oo!

Mombi:
Booh!
Hand joined to hand,
That grim and awful band,
Danceround and round
So madley,
That you'll gladly
Shake your heels and
Scoot, scoot, scoot!
With nerves a shiver,
And your flesh a-quiver,
This company doubtless
The timid won't suit!

Repeat Chorus

In this short lived musical based on L. Frank Baum's 1904 book, The Marvelous Land of Oz, the role of Mombi the wicked witch, was sung by Phoebe Coyne. Her one song was "The Hobgoblins," which occurs early in Act One.

As Mombi, Miss Coyne wore a large putty nose and a fearsome wig of red and green. Phoebe Coyne was also married to Woggle-Bug Director, Frank Smithson.
