"Oogie Boogie's Song (The Nightmare Before Christmas)" as written by and Danny Elfman....
Well, well, well, what have we here
Sandy Claws, huh
Oh, 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 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, oh

Oh
(Oh)
Oh
(Oh)
Oh
(Oh)
Oh, he's 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

Oh
(Oh)
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

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


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

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
