From "Sleepy Hollow: The Rock Opera"

Baltus:
Honey, come down, the guests will start arriving any minute now
I better stop picking at the chow.

Katrina:
Oh, what a beautiful dress, I really think that I look good in blue
And it makes me look chubby, too
A little chubby too.

Young Griswald:
Check out my brass buttons and my calico patch
And the bright blue stockings to match.

Dame Hedrick:
To buy a new gown with a corset, of course it's rather dear
So I'll just work double time next year
Double time next year

Both:
The whole town is dressed the best they can afford
I can't afford stinginess now.

Townspeople:
At the Harvest Banquet
Once a year for beef and beer to set the next year right
And at the Harvest Banquet
Everyone's a rich man for a night.

Ichabod:
Thank you, Mr. Van Ripper for the use of your horse.
I'll return it good as new of course.
But how come he spits up and recoils at the touch
And his teeth chattering so much
Chattering so much
I know I shouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth,
But he keeps trying to bite my eye.

Townspeople:
At the Harvest Banquet
Once a year for beef and beer to set the next year right
And at the Harvest Banquet
Everyone's a rich man for a night.

Brom:
Stable boy!
Gunpowder here is like a loaded gun,
But hell, a broken horse ain't no fun.
Ready...
Let's get some action for the big boys
This party's itchin' for a little noise
For a little noise.

Baltus and Katrina:
So welcome everyone
The feast is at hand
So eat meat, mingle and sing.

Townspeople:
At the Harvest Banquet
Once a year for beef and beer to set the next year right
And at the Harvest Banquet
Everyone, everyone
At the Harvest Banquet
The country stops to toast its crops
And cash in on its plight
And at the Harvest Banquet
Everyone's a rich man for a night.
