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

You're jokin', you're jokin'
I can't believe my eyes
You're jokin' me, you've 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 a-shakin'
Then there's something very wrong
'Cause this may be the last time
That you hear the boogie song

Woah
Woah
Woah
I'm 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

Woah
Woah
Woah
I'm the Oogie Boogie Man

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 (woah)
Woah (woah)
Woah (woah)
I'm the Oogie Boogie Man

Woah (woah)
Woah (woah)
Woah (woah)
I'm the Oogie Boogie Man

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

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
