BOOGIE MAN! 
(A Hallowe'en Song)
by Roger Dorey

BOOGIE MAN!

I'm not in costume, I'm under cover

That's not a ghost, that's my ex-lover

I'm not in costume, I'm under cover

That's not a ghost, that's my ex-lover

Trick or treat, its Hallowe'en

I won't get fooled like that again

I'm the boogie man

I'm the boogie man

 

Is that the devil at the door

I'm too afraid to look no more

Is that the devil at the door

I'm too afraid to look no more

Trick or treat, its Hallowe'en

I won't get fooled like that again

I'm the boogie man

I'm the boogie man

 

Is that a witch in this bar room

Come to tell me to dust her broom

Is that a witch in this bar room

Come to tell me to dust her broom

Trick or treat, its Hallowe'en

I won't get fooled like that again

I'm the boogie man

I'm the boogie man

 

When you talk about the living dead

I turn the shade of a pumpkin head

Nicky nicky nine doors late at night

Am I scared to get caught? Damn right!

 

Jack-O-Lantern went up the hill

To run away from his girl Jill

His girl Jill was at the top

Says I don't want you just want to bop

Trick or treat, its Hallowe'en

I won't get fooled like that again

I'm the boogie man

I'm the boogie man
