The Nightmare Before Christmas

Kidnap the Sandy Claws

Lyrics from The Nightmare Before Christmas
Written by Danny Elfman
Performed by Paul Reubens, Catherine O'Hara and Danny Elfman

Lock, Shock, Barrel

Kidnap Mr. Sandy Claws
I wanna do it
Let's draw straws
Jack said we should work together
Three of a kind
Birds of a feather
Now and forever
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

Kidnap the Sandy Claws
Lock him up real tight
Throw away the key and then
Turn off all the lights

First, we're going to set some bait
Inside a nasty trap and wait
When he comes a-sniffing we
Will snap the trap and close the gate

Wait, I've got a better plan
To catch this big red lobster man
Let's pop him in a boiling pot
And when he's done we'll butter him up

Kidnap the Sandy Claws
Throw him in a box
Bury him for ninety years
Then see if he talks

Then Mr. Oogie Boogie man
Can take the whole thing over then
He'll be so pleased, I do declare
That he will cook him rare
Wee!

I say that we take a cannon
Aim it at his door and then
Knock three times and when he answers
Sandy Claws will be no more

You're so stupid, think now
If we blow him up to smithereens
We may lose some pieces
And then Jack will beat us black and green

Kidnap the Sandy Claws
Tie him in a bag
Throw him in the ocean
Then see if he is sad

Because Mr. Oogie Boogie is the meanest guy around
If I were on his Boogie list, I'd get out of town

He'll be so pleased by our success
That he'll reward us too, I'll bet
Perhaps he'll make his special brew
Of snake and spider stew

We're his little henchmen
And we take our job with pride
We do our best to please him
And stay on his good side

I wish my cohorts weren't so dumb
I'm not the dumb one
You're no fun
Shut up!
Make me!

I've got something, listen up
This one is real good, you'll see
We'll send a present to his door
Upon it there'll be a note to read

Now, in the box we'll wait and hide
Until his curiosity
Entices him to look inside
And then we'll have him, one, two, three

Kidnap the Sandy Claws
Beat him with a stick
Lock him up for ninety years
See what makes him tick

Kidnap the Sandy Claws
Chop him into bits
Mr. Oogie Boogie is
Sure to get his kicks

Kidnap the Sandy Claws
See what we will see
Lock him in a cage and then
Throw away the key!
