(Performed by Chris Sarandon)
Oh no! Oh no!
There's trouble everywhere!
There's smoke clouds in the air!
I can't believe my eyes
I have to help them
Hurry Jack, they wouldn't dare!
Oh no! Oh no!
There's something very wrong!
These things here don't belong!
The streets are lined with
Little creatures crying
All the others must be hiding
Christmas spirit is subsiding!
The joyous decorations here
Are melting from the fire!
No doubt the work of Oogie Boogie!
Drat that no good liar!
There's fear in every window!
Oh, I can't believe my eyes!
And in my bones I feel the urge
To cut him down to size!
And there! Oh no!
His monsters have control!
It shows me to my soul!
They're gathering the presents to ignite them!
Don't they know who they are for?
He's here! It's all part of his plan!
He's really gone too far!
It's up to me to put a stop to this
Now is my chance I cannot miss!
This town's counting on me!
So I must take charge and let them know!
The time is now
For them to go!
Or when to start in such a mess!
Oh no, what now?
The peaceful town is ruined!
And look, the Christmas tree is bare!
Attacked! By someone, welcomed fiends!
I tell you I will snare them
And make sure they pay for their
Outlandish rude behavior
The cheerfulness is missing
And the wonder isn't here!
And in their place there seems to be
A paralyzing fear!
Instead of songs, I swear
I can just hear screaming in the air!
The stench of Oogie Boogie
Is absolutely everywhere
The ghosts, the ghouls!
They're everywhere and all around!
I've never felt so sad before!
This happy place in front of me is being trashed
So greedily, so greedily!
It's tragic! Oh, it's tragic!
I can't stand and watch it burn!
I've got to save this Christmas Town!
And seize these monsters lying all about!
This must stop!
