Hey everyone, it's getting to be that time of year again so I figured we should celebrate a little bit with a fun chorus!
Some of you have already seen The Nightmare Before Christmas. It's pretty famous for its Halloween theme, stop-motion animation, and also being directed by Tim Burton. It's a favorite among the Halloween fans ( and you probably don't stop hearing people singing "This Is Halloween" once October starts :P ), and one of mine too!
I felt pretty inspired by the last few chorus events on CL, and they made me want to come up with my own so that I could share more enjoyment with the rest of you. Especially during the late-year holiday seasons! So with this, I present to you the "Oogie Boogie" Chorus Event.
I think this will be a fun little project, especially because of the carefreeness that the Nightmare Before Christmas songs bring to the table. I want everybody to be as silly as they can be and have as much fun as possible while recording! And I want to release the event early because I know that school has just started for a lot of you, and if you end up joining I want to give everybody as much time as I can to sing their parts.
If you'd like to sing only the main chorus parts, or just the background voices, you're free to do whatever lines you want!

Well, well, well, what have we here?
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 now
That you hear the boogie song, ohhh
Ohhh, he's the Oogie Boogie Man
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
OOGIE BOOGIE AND THREE SKELETONS
Oh, yeah, I'm (he's) the Oogie Boogie Man
Release me now
Or you must face the dire consequences
The children are expecting me
So please, come to your senses
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
What are you going to do?
I'm gonna do the best I can
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
Release me fast or you will have to
Answer for this heinous act
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 prayer
'Cause I'm Mr. Oogie Boogie
And you ain't going nowhere
