Tiger Army Oogie Boogie's song lyrics

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' then there's something very wrong

Cause this may be the last time you hear the boogie song, ohhh.

Three Bats: Ohhh

Oogie Boogie: Ohhh

Seven Lizards: Ohhh

Oogie Boogie: Ohhh

Seven Lizards: Ohhh, he's the Oogie Boogie Man

Oogie Boogie: Well if I'm feelin' ansty

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 so nice?

A roly-poly Sandy Claws to add a little spice.

Three Skeletons: Ohhh

Oogie Boogie: Oh yeah

Three Bats: Ohhh

Oogie Boogie: Ohhh

Three Bats: Ohhh

Oogie Boogie and Three Skeletons: Oh yeah, 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 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 friend

Cause I'm Mr. Oogie Boogie

And you ain't goin' nowhere!


  • In fanfiction, it is the most popular Nightmare Before Christmas song. However, it only made one MCF story so far.
  • In the original idea, he was going to eat him, but it was scrapped because the creator and puppeteers couldn't figure out how to do the dancing bugs for the song.
    • That part of the song still remains intact in the MCF stories.
