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!
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
Woah (Woah)
Woah (Woah)
Woah (Woah)
Oh, (he's the) Oogie Boogie Man
Well, if I'm feelin' antsy
And I've nothin' much to do
I might just cook a special batch
Of snake and spider stew
And don't you know the one thing
That would make it work so nice?
A roly-poly Sandy Claws to add a little spice
Woah (Woah)
Woah (Oh)
Woah (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
Ha! 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
What are you going to do?
I'm gonna do the best I can
Woah! 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 will have to
Answer for this heinous act
Oh, brother, you're something
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 going nowhere
