LyricsEdit

Well, well, well, what have we here?
Sandy Claws, huh? Ooh, I'm really scared!
So you're the one everybody's talkin' about!
Ha, ha, ha, ha!

You're jokin', you're jokin'
I can't believe my eyes
You're jokin' me, you gotta be
This can't be the right guy.

He's ancient, he's ugly
I don't know which is worse
I might just split a seam now
If I don't die laughing first.

When Mr. Oogie Boogie says
There's trouble close at hand
You'd better pay attention now
'Cause I'm the Boogie Man.

And if you aren't shakin'
There's something very wrong
'Cause this may be the last time
You hear the Boogie Song

Oh
Oh
Oh
Oh
Oh
Oh
I'm/he's the Oogie Boogie Man

Release me now or you must face
The dire consequences
The children are expecting me
So please, come to your senses

You're jokin', you're jokin'
I can't believe my ears
Would someone shut this fella up?
I'm drownin' in my tears.

It's funny, I'm laughing
You really are too much
And now, with your permission,
I'm going to do my stuff

[Well, what are you going to do?]

[I'm going to do the best I can]

Oh, the sound of rollin' dice
To me is music in the air
'Cause I'm a gamblin' Boogie Man
Although I don't play fair.

It's much more fun, I must confess
When lives are on the line
Not mine, of course but yours, old boy
Now that'd be just fine.

Release me fast or you'll have to answer for this heinous act!

Oh brother, you're somethin'
You put me in a spin
You aren't comprehending
The position that you're in

It's hopeless, you're finished
You haven't got a prayer
'Cause I'm Mr. Oogie Boogie
And you ain't goin' nowhere!

Well, well, well, what have we here?
Sandy Claws, huh? Ooh, I'm really scared!
So you're the one everybody's talkin' about!
Ha, ha, ha, ha!

You're jokin', you're jokin'
I can't believe my eyes
You're jokin' me, you gotta be
This can't be the right guy.

He's ancient, he's ugly
I don't know which is worse
I might just split a seam now
If I don't die laughing first.

When Mr. Oogie Boogie says
There's trouble close at hand
You'd better pay attention now
'Cause I'm the Boogie Man.

And if you aren't shakin'
There's something very wrong
'Cause this may be the last time
You hear the Boogie Song

Oh
Oh
Oh
Oh
Oh
Oh
I'm/he's the Oogie Boogie Man

Well if I'm feelin' antsy
And there's nothin' much to do
I might just cook a special batch
Of snake and spider stew.

And don't ya know the one thing
That would make it work so nice?
A roly-poly Sandy Claws
To add a little spice.

Ohhh
Ohhh
Ohhh
Ohhh
Ohhh
Oh, yeah
I'm/he's the Oogie Boogie Man

Release me now or you must face
The dire consequences
The children are expecting me
So please, come to your senses

You're jokin', you're jokin'
I can't believe my ears
Would someone shut this fella up?
I'm drownin' in my tears.

It's funny, I'm laughing
You really are too much
And now, with your permission,
I'm going to do my stuff

[Well, what are you going to do?]

[I'm going to do the best I can]

Ha!
Yeah!

Oh, the sound of rollin' dice
To me is music in the air
'Cause I'm a gamblin' Boogie Man
Although I don't play fair.

It's much more fun, I must confess
When lives are on the line
Not mine, of course but yours, old boy
Now that'd be just fine.

Release me fast or you'll have to answer for this heinous act!

Oh brother, you're somethin'
You put me in a spin
You aren't comprehending
The position that you're in

It's hopeless, you're finished
You haven't got a prayer
'Cause I'm Mr. Oogie Boogie
And you ain't goin' nowhere!
