Oogie Boogie's Song

Lyrics from The Nightmare Before Christmas
Written by Danny Elfman
Performed by Ken Page and Edward Ivory

Santa, Oogie Boogie

[Oogie Boogie:] Well, well, well, what have we here?
Sandy Claws, huh?
Ooh, I'm really scared
So you're the one everybody's talkin' about, ah, 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

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

Whoa oh (whoa oh)
Whoa oh (whoa oh)
Whoa oh (whoa oh)
I'm (he's) the Oogie Boogie Man

[Santa:] Release me now
Or you must face the dire consequences
The children are expecting me
So please, come to your senses

[Oogie Boogie:] 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

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

[Santa:] Release me fast or you will have to
Answer for this heinous act

[Oogie Boogie:] 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
