Lyrics[]

Lock, Shock & Barrel (Together):
Kidnap Mr. Sandy Claws?

Lock:
I wanna do it!

Barrel
Let's draw straws!

Shock:
Jack said we should work together

Barrel:

Three of a kind!

Together:
Birds of a feather,
Now and forever!
(Wheee!) La, la la, la, la, la, la la, la, la, la,

La, la la, la, la, la, 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'll butter him up!

Together:
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...

Together:

Can take the whole thing over then
He'll be so pleased, I do declare
That he will cook him rare
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
If we blow him up to smithereens,
We may lose some pieces
And then Jack will beat us black and green

Together:
Kidnap the Sandy Claws
Tie him in a bag
Throw him in the ocean
Then see if he is sad

Lock & Shock:
Because Mr. Oogie Boogie is the meanest guy around
If I were on his Boogie list, I'd get out of town!

Barrel:
He'll be so pleased by our success
That he'll reward us too, I'll bet

Together:
Perhaps he'll make his special brew
Of snake and spider stew!
Mmmm!

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'll see
We'll send a present to his door
Upon there'll be a note to read
Now, in the box we'll wait and hide
Until his curiosity

Together:

Entices him to look inside
And then we'll have him
One, two, three!
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!
