"Oogie Boogie Background Singer's theme song" is a cover song used in 321SPONGEBOLT'S version of the episode, "A Christmas Plotz". It is sung by Oogie Boogie Background Singer and The Ghost of Christmas Present. It would also be covered again in the 2005 videogame, "Animaniacs: The Great Edgar Hunt", during the C.C. DeVille final boss as Oogie has Background Singer/Egon kidnapped on top of the blimp.

LYRICS[]

(As soon as Mr. Plotz unties the ribbon, and instrumental plays for 14 seconds while dark magic covers the whole office. Then on a trumpet blare, Dot and Oogie pop out of the box.)

Dot: Who are you calling a fruitcake? (Turns visible)

Oogie Boogie Background Singer: (Steps out of the box) Well, well, well! What have we here? Mr. Plotz, huh? OH! I'm really scared! So you're the one everyone's been hating for so long! (Evilly laughs and starts to speak to the music)

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Spoken): ♪You're joking! You're joking! I can't believe me eyes!♪

♪You're joking me, you've gotta be! This can't be the right guy!♪

♪He's ancient!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Spoken) (Deep voice): ♪He's ugly!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Spoken) (Normal voice): ♪I don't know which is worse!♪

I might just split a seam now if I don't die laughing first!

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Sung): ♪Mister Oogie Boogie said there's trouble close at hand. (Grabs Mr. Plotz by his chest and lifts him up to his height)♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Spoken): ♪YOU BETTER PAY ATTENTION NOW! 'Cause I'm the Boogie Man!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Sung): ♪And if you aren't shaking, there's something very wrong!♪

♪'Cause this may be the last time, you hear the Boogie song. (Turns to his demons) Whoa!♪

Demons: ♪Whoa!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer: ♪Whoa! (Opens a box, unleashing Dot's pets.)♪

Dot's pets: ♪Whoa!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer: ♪Whoa!♪

Vultures: ♪Whoa!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer and his army: ♪I'm (He's) the Oogie Boogie Man!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Spoken): ♪Well, if I'm feeling ANTSY (When Oogie yells "ANTSY!", ants fly out of his mouth and land on Mr. Plotz' face.) and I've nothing much to do, I might just cook a special batch of Snake and Spider Stew!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Sung): ♪And don't you know the one thing, that would make it work so nice?♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Spoken): ♪A roly-poly Mr. Plotz to add a little SPICE!♪

Oogie's Henchmen and Vultures: ♪Whoa!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Sung): ♪Whoa!♪

Oogie's Henchmen and Vultures: ♪Whoa!♪

(Oogie Boogie Background Singer evilly laughs)

Oogie's Henchmen and Vultures: ♪Whoa!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer: Yeah.

Oogie Boogie Background Singer and his army: ♪I'm (He's) the Oogie Boogie Man!♪

(We cut over to Mr. Plotz tied up to his chair with his hands tied from behind)

Mr. Plotz (Spoken): ♪Release me now, or you will face the dire consequences!♪

♪The Warners are expecting me, so please! Come to your senses!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Spoken): ♪You're joking! You're joking! I can't believe me ears! (Spins Mr. Plotz around)♪

♪Will someone shut this follow up? (Kicks him to the floor)♪

♪I'm drowning 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.

Mr. Plotz (Scared): Wha-what are you going to do?

Oogie Boogie Background Singer: I'm gonna do the best I can.

(During the jazzy instrumental, Dot steps out of the box to introduce herself.)

Dot: I'm the Ghost of Christmas Present. I'm a pun. Get it?

Oogie Boogie Background Singer: And now for the ultimate sacrifice!

Vulture: Ha! Yes!

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Sung): ♪WHOA! The sounds of rolling dice to me is music in the air! (Throws five dice blocks onto the floor, four of which reveal Mr. Plotz' face.)♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Spoken): ♪'Cause I'm a gambling Boogie man, although I don't play fair!♪

(Oogie pours the dice back in the cup, and magically pulls out a long chain.)

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Sung): ♪It's much more fun, I must confess, when lives are on the line! (Throws the chain at Mr. Plotz, tying him up.)♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Spoken): ♪Not mine, of course. But yours, old boy! Now that'd be just fine!♪

Mr. Plotz (Spoken): ♪Release me fast, or you will have to answer for this heinous act!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Spoken): ♪Oh brother! You're something! You put me in a spin! (Pulls the chain, and spins Mr. Plotz around.)♪

♪But you aren't comprehending, the position that you're in!♪

(Oogie's demons surround Mr. Plotz and slowly walk closer to him from all angles)

♪It's hopeless! You're finished! And you haven't got a prayer!♪

♪(Opens his folded wings that say "OOGIE" on each wing) Because I'm "Mr. Oogie Boogie", and you ain't going nowhere. (Evilly laughs and turns to his wife)♪

Let's finishhh him off.

(Just then, bouncy upbeat music begins to play, with Dot and Oogie dancing while holding hands.)

Dot and Oogie: ♪Thaddeus Plotz, you mean old man! Causing pain wherever you can, it's all about to hit the fan, you greedy C.E.O.!♪

♪You're guilty in the first degree of causing pain and misery!♪

(Dot and Oogie drop Mr. Plotz in the box and Dot dives in after him)

♪Now it's time for you to see, so hang on, here we go!♪♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (on the final note of the music): Hey! (Oogie flies into the box)

Oogie Boogie Background Singer: (Steps out of the box) Well, well, well! What have we here? Mr. Plotz, huh? OH! I'm really scared!

(Music starts)

So you're the one everyone's been hating for so long! (Evilly laughs) Let's finishhh him off.

Dot (Spoken): ♪I'm the Ghost of Christmas Present. The here and now.♪

Dot (Sung): ♪We've come to you, will come to Ralph's house with me!♪

Dot (Spoken): ♪Mr. Plotz! Whether to want to go or not!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Rapping): ♪You're joking! You're joking! I can't believe me eyes!♪

♪You're joking me, you've gotta be [you've gotta be]!♪

(Music stops)

This can't be the right guy! [No, no!]♪

(Music resumes)

♪He's ancient!♪

♪He's ugly!♪

♪Now I don't know which is worse.♪

♪But I might just split a seam now if I don't die laughing first.♪

♪Now, Mister Oogie Boogie said, there's trouble close at hand! You better pay attention now, 'cause I'm the Boogie Man!♪

♪Mr. Plotz! Whether to want to go or not!♪

♪And if you aren't shaking, there's something very wrong!♪

♪'Cause this may be the last time, you hear the Boogie song.♪

DANCE!

♪Well, if I'm feeling antsy, and I've nothing much to do, I might just cook a special batch of Snake and Spider Stew!♪

♪And, don't you know the one thing would make it work so nice? A roly-poly...♪

Dot (Spoken): ♪Mr. Plotz!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Rapping): ♪To add a little spice!♪

(Instrumental solo)

Dot (Spoken): ♪I'm the Ghost of Christmas Present.♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Spoken): ♪And I'm Oogie Boogie!♪

Dot (Spoken): ♪And here's our vow.♪

Dot (Sung) and Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Sung): ♪We will show you just how sad one family can be!♪

Dot (Spoken) and Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Spoken): ♪Mr. Plotz! Whether to want to go or not!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Rapping): ♪Go or not!♪

Dot (Spoken): ♪In the present, tense, today.♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Spoken): ♪This very minute. Right away.♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Rapping): ♪Thaddeus Plotz, you mean old man! Causing pain wherever you can, it's all about to hit the fan, you greedy C.E.O.!♪

♪You're guilty in the first degree, causing pain and misery!♪

♪Now it's time for you to see, so hang on, here we go...♪

Dot (Spoken) and Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Spoken): ♪Mr. Plotz!♪♪

(After the final note, Oogie Boogie Background Singer does an evil laugh.)

Santa: Ho, ho, ho!

Oogie Boogie Background Singer: Well, well, well! Yakko, Waldo, Wakko, and Dot! I've been expecting you fools! So how do you like my Oogie town!? (Evilly laughs)

Background Singer/King Egon (Spoken): ♪It's over! It's over! This time, you've gone too far!♪

♪It's over! I'm FURIOUS! Just who do you think you are!?♪

Yakko (Spoken): ♪Just because you stole the Edgars doesn't make you king!♪

Wizard Waldo: You'd better give up!

Dot: Surrender now!

Wakko (Sung): ♪We're fixing everything!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Sung): ♪That's what you think!♪

HA!

♪But you couldn't be more wrong! And this will be the last time, you hear the Boogie song.♪

Background Singer/King Egon (Sung): ♪But let's just say, you'll kill me ONLY in my bad dreams.♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Spoken): ♪That's true, Singer! It was your dream! But now, it's coming true!♪

♪'Cause even my mere shadow knows your singing days are through!♪

Oogie's Henchmen and Vultures: ♪Whoa!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Sung): ♪Whoa!♪

Dot (Sung): ♪I hope you did amuse yourself. My head is getting hot!♪

Yakko and Wakko (Sung): ♪You better pay attention now, 'cause she's our sister, Dot!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Sung): ♪You think that you're a winning, but that's a lot of noise!♪

♪Release them all at once or you will have to deal with me!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Sung): ♪You foiled my plans!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Spoken): ♪So what? Big deal!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer: ♪Whoa!♪

Yakko, Wakko, Dot, and Wizard Waldo: ♪Whoa!♪

Dot: ♪I'm (She's) the Warner sister Dot!♪

(The song repeats until C.C. DeVille's blimp falls from the sky. When this happens, the song stops and Oogie lets out a scream of defeat as he falls to his doom after slipping off the roof of the blimp.)

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Angry): Are you still here? I don't like the sound of that! Why don't you all "Oogie" on back to where you all came from? You know, surrender in that water tower of yours!

Background Singer/King Egon (in his Warner form) (Spoken): ♪It's over! It's over! Your scheme was bound to fail!♪

Background Singer/King Egon (in his Warner form) (Spoken): ♪What's this? A trick? I'm not impressed!♪

Background Singer/King Egon (in his Warner form) (Sung): ♪You're bad and never learn!♪

♪It makes it all the more worth while to see a demon burn!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Sung): ♪Talk, talk, talk! But I tell you, this scarecrow's going nowhere!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Spoken): ♪If I were you, I'd take a hike! There's danger in the air!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Sung): ♪Whoa!♪

Background Singer/King Egon (in his Warner form) (Spoken): ♪It's over! You're finished! You'll never get away!♪

♪You, the king of Warner Bros.? That'll be the day!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Spoken): ♪How feeble! How childish! Is that the best you got?♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer: You think you're heroes, Yakko, Wakko, and Dot? But I think you're not! (To his vultures) It's chowtime, boys!

(Oogie's vultures squawk and charge at the five. Thankfully, they all dodge them as Oogie sings.)

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Sung): ♪The sounds of flying birds to me is music in the air!♪

♪'Cause I'm a gambling Boogie man, although I don't play fair!♪

♪It's much more fun, I must confess, when lives are on the line!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Spoken): ♪Not mine, of course. But yours, old boy! Now that'd be just fine!♪

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Sung): ♪Whoa!♪

And you... (A fireball ignites over the palm of his hand) ain't going... nowhere!

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (Scared): Wait! Put that down! Please!

(In Oogie's POV, the camera rotates showing him being surrounded by Wizard Waldo with a fireball on the top of his scepter, and Yakko, Wakko, and Dot with torches as they slowly walk closer to Oogie with anger.)

Have mercy! Stop!

(We cut to Oogie cowering at the sight of the angry mob's fire)

Stop at once! I command you!

Background Singer/King Egon (in his Warner form): Too late, Oogie. This is your punishment.

Yakko: Now!

(They all throw their fire at Oogie, and set him on fire.)

Oogie Boogie Background Singer (While burning): OH! OH! FIRE! THAT'S MY ONE WEAKNESS! SOON I'M GONNA BURN INTO NOTHING BUT ASHES! HELP ME! I'M BURNING!

(While Oogie screams as he burns to death, his bugs scatter out of the suit as his voice becomes high-pitched.)

Oogie's Bugs (High-Pitched): I'm burning, that's not fair...!

(The fire dies down and the suit has been burned alive. Worst of all, Oogie's bugs scatter away from the Warner Bros. studio lot as the vultures chase after them to eat them. One bug however gets squished by Background Singer/King Egon's foot.)

(11-second instrumental)

Dot: Who are you calling a fruitcake? (Turns visible)

Oogie Boogie Background Singer: Well, well, well! What have we here? Mr. Plotz, huh? I'm really scared! So you're the one everyone's been hating for so long!

TRIVIA[]

  • I used Audacity to attempt to try voicing Dot by lowering Dot's sound clips down a few semi-tones to get the impression. Then I would proceed to lower the music down that same amount of semi-tones until it's time to pitch the recorded voice clips up.
