"Kidnap the Sandy Claws" is a song from Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas. It is sung by Lock, Shock, and Barrel when they plan to capture Santa so that Jack could take over Christmas, which only brings in a disastrous result.

An instrumental version of the song is heard in the seasonal attraction Haunted Mansion Holiday when guests explore the holiday-decorated Haunted Mansion.

Lyrics

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

Barrel: 'Three of a kind
Lock: Birds of a feather
Lock, Shock, and Barrel:' Now and forever!

La, la, la, la, la, la
La-la-la-la-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 90 years, then see if he talks

Shock: Then Mr. Oogie Boogie Man...
Lock and Shock:... can take the whole thing over then
'Lock and Barrel: He'll be so pleased, I do declare
Lock and Shock: That he will cook him rare
Wheeee!

Lock: I say that we take a cannon, aim it at his door and then
Knock three times and when he answers, 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 and 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 and Barrel: Perhaps he'll make his special brew
Lock and Shock: Of snake and spider stew (Shock: Mmmm!)

Lock, Shock, and Barrel: 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 until his curiosity

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

Kidnap the Sandy Claws, beat him with a stick
Lock him up for 90 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...!
