LOCK, SHOCK, AND BARREL
Kidnap Mr. Sandy Claws
LOCK
I wanna do it
BARREL
Let's draw straws
SHOCK
Jack said we should work together
Three of a kind
LOCK, SHOCK, AND BARREL
Birds of a feather
Now and forever
Wheeee
La, la, la, la, la
Kidnap the Sandy Claws, lock him up real tight
Throw away the key and then
Turn off all the lights
SHOCK
First, we're going to set some bait
Inside a nasty trap and wait
When he comes a-sniffing we will
Snap the trap and close the gate
LOCK
Wait! I've got a better plan
To catch this big red lobster man
Let's pop him in a boiling pot
And when he's done we'II butter him up
LOCK, SHOCK, AND BARREL
Kidnap the Sandy Claws
Throw him in a box
Bury him for ninety years
Then see if he talks
SHOCK
Then Mr. Oogie Boogie Man
Can take the whole thing over then
He'II be so pleased, I do declare
That he will cook him rare
LOCK,SHOCK,ANDBARREL
Wheeee
LOCK
I say that we take a cannon
Aim it at his door
And then knock three times
And when he answers
Sandy Claws will be no more
SHOCK
You're so stupid, think now
Lf we blow him up to smithereens
We may lose some pieces
And then jack will beat us black and green
LOCK,SHOCK,ANDBARREL
Kidnap the Sandy Claws
Tie him in a bag
Throw him in the ocean
Then, see if he is sad
LOCK AND SHOCK
Because Mr. Oogie Boogie is the meanest guy
Around
Lf I were on his Boogie list, I'd get out of town
BARREL
He'II be so pleased by our success
That he'II reward us too, I bet
LOCK,SHOCK,ANDBARREL
Perhaps he'II make his special brew
Of snake and spider stew
Ummm!
We're his little henchmen and
We take our job with pride
We do our best to please him
And stay on his good side
SHOCK
I wish my cohorts weren't so dumb
BARREL
I'm not the dumb one
LOCK
You're no fun
SHOCK
Shut up
LOCK
Make me
SHOCK
I've got something, listen now
This one is real good, you'II see
We'II send a present to his door
Upon there'II be a note to read
Now, in the box we'II wait and hide
Until his curiosity entices him to look inside
BARREL
And then we'II have him
One, two, three
LOCK, SHOCK, AND BARREL
Kidnap the Sandy Claws, beat him with a stick
Lock him up for ninety years, see what
makes him tick
Kidnap the Sandy Claws, chop him into bits
Mr. Oogie Boogie is sure to get his kicks
Kidnap the Sandy Claws, see what we will see
Lock him in a cage and then, throw away the
Key
