Shock: [singing] I wish my cohorts weren't so dumb.
Barrel: [singing] I'm not the dumb one.

[Singing] And since I am dead, I can take off my head, to recite Shakespearean quotations / No animal or man can SCREAM like I can, with the fury of my recitations!

[singing] And will we ever / End up together? / No, I think not / It's never to become / For I am not the one.

[Singing] I sense there's something in the wind/ that feels like tragedy at hand./ And though I'd like to stand by him/ can't shake this feeling that I have.

[Singing] Just because I cannot see it doesn't mean I can't believe it!

[Singing] Of course I've been too close to see, the answer's right in front of me!

[Singing] Release me fast, or you will have to answer for this heinous act!

[Singing] Release me now or you must face the dire consequences!

[Singing] The sound of rolling 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, with lives on the line! / Not mine, of course, but YOURS, old boy! Now that'd be just fine!

[Singing] There's children throwing snowballs / instead of throwing heads / they're busy building toys / and absolutely no one's dead!

[Singing] Well, well, well. What have we here? / Sandy Claws, huh? Ooooh, 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 laughin' first! / Mister 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 somethin' very wrong, / 'Cause this may be the last time you hear the Boogie Song!/ You're crazy! You're joking! I can't believe my ears!/ Will SOMEONE shut this fellow up? I'm drownin' in my tears.

[Singing] What a splendid idea! This "Christmas" sounds fun. I fully endorse it — let's try it at once!

[Singing] What's this? / What's this? / There's color everywhere / What's this? / There's white things in the air / What's this? / I can't believe my eyes, I must be dreaming / Wake up, Jack! This isn't fair! / What's this?

[Singing] You know, I think this Christmas thing / Is not as tricky as it seems, / And why should they have all the fun? / It should belong to anyone! / Not anyone, in fact, but me! / Why, I could make a Christmas tree, / And there's no reason I can find / I couldn't handle Christmas time! / I bet I could improve it, too, / And that's exactly what I'll do!

[To his new creation] You will be a decided improvement over that treacherous Sally. We'll have conversations worth having.
