Oogie Boogie

[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!

And they call him "Sandy Claws".

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

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

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

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

It's Oogie's turn to Boogie now!

Narrator: Twas a long time ago, longer now than it seems, / In a place perhaps you've seen in your dreams; / For the story that you are about to be told / Took place in the holiday worlds of old. / Now you've probably wondered where holidays come from. / If you haven't, I'd say it's time you begun.
Police Officer: Attacked by Christmas toys? That's strange, that's the second toy complaint we've had.

Jack: [singing] My dearest friend, if you don't mind, / I'd like to join you by your side, / Where we can gaze into the stars...
Jack and Sally: [singing in unison] And sit together / Now and forever. / For it is plain / As anyone can see / We're simply meant to be.

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

[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!

Eureka! This year Christmas will be ours!

Clown: I looked in every mausoleum.
Witches: We opened the sarcophagi!
Mr. Hyde: I tromped through the Pumpkin Patch.
Vampire: I peeked behind the Cyclops' Eye. I did, but he wasn't there!
