Lyrics Oogie Boogie's Song

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
Mister Oogie Boogie says there's trouble close at hand
You'd better pay attention now 'cos I'm the Boogie Man
And if you aren't shakin' then something's very wrong
'Cos this may be the last time you hear the boogie song
Woh, oh woh, oh
Woh, oh
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 one thing
That would make it work so nice
A roly-poly Sandy Claws to add a little spice
Woh, oh oh, oh
Yeah, I'm 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
Ah 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
Ah, ah, ah, ah, ah, ah
Ooh, ooh
Ah, yeah
Oh, the sound of rollin' dice to me is music in the air
'Cos 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 will 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
'Cos I'm Mister Oogie Boogie and you ain't going nowhere
