always and forever we will try in vain to warn our brothers and sisters. the boogieman is coming to get you. lock the doors and shut the windows. grab a flashlight and ice some beer. get those blankets and pull that crate of water to the side of the house. clear a large area in the middle of the room. boogieman 'bout to boogie. rat-a-tat-tat creates the hush, the man appears in a cloud of dust. white suit with a golden belt, pearly shoes and a hat of felt. all the dancers stopped and stared, the boogieman with his thinning hair. took a step and then flashed a smile, had the look had the style. do the boogieman shake, yeah yeah, do the boogieman shake, uh huh, do the boogieman shake, all right.
