"Oogie Boogie's Song" is the main villain song from The Nightmare Before Christmas sung by Oogie Boogie and his prisoner, Santa Claus. Due to time constraints, the instrumental break was removed from it in the film, while the second verse was removed because of the difficulty of making miniature armatures for the dancing bugs, but both were present on the soundtrack of the film.

Lyrics

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! 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.

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

Ohhh.

Skeletons:
Ohhh

Oogie Boogie:
Ohhh

Skeletons:
Ohhh

Oogie Boogie:
Ohhh

Bats:
Ohhh

Oogie Boogie and Chorus:
I'm (he's) the Oogie Boogie Man

Oogie Boogie:
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.

Chorus:
Ohhh

Oogie Boogie:
Ohhh

Chorus:
Ohhh

Oogie Boogie:
Ohhh

Chorus:
Ohhh

Oogie Boogie:
Oh, yeah

Oogie Boogie and Chorus:
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

Santa: What are you going to do?

Oogie Boogie: I'm going to do the best I can

(Musical Interlude)

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.

Santa: Release me fast or you'll have to answer for this heinous act!

Oogie Boogie:
Oh brother, you're somethin'
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 goin' nowhere!
