Lock, Shock and Barrel: Kidnap Mr. Sandy Claws?

Lock: I wanna do it

Barrel: Let's draw straws

Shock: Jack said we should work together

''''Bold text'Barrel: Three of a kind

Lock: Birds of a feather

Lock, Shock, Barrel: Now and forever

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

Lock, Shock and Barrel: 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
Can take the whole thing over then
He'll be so pleased, I do declare
That he will cook him rare

Lock, Shock and Barrel: Wheeee!

Lock: I say that we take a cannon
Aim it at his door and then
Knock three times and when he anwers
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

Lock, Shock and Barrel: 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 bet

Lock, Shock and Barrel: Perhaps he'll make his special brew
Of snake and spider stew

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

Lock, Shock and Barrel: Until his curiosity
Entices him to look inside
And then we'll have him
One, two, three

Lock, Shock and Barrel: 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...
