Lyrics

I sense there's something in the wind
That feels like tragedy's at hand
And though I'd like to stand by him
Can't shake this feeling that I have
The worst is just around the bend
And does he notice my feelings for him?
And will he see how much he means to me?
I think it's not to be

What will become of my dear friend?
Where will his actions lead us then?
Although I'd like to join the crowd
In their enthusiastic cloud
Try as I may, it doesn't last
And will we ever end up together?
No, I think not, it's never to become
For I am not the one

Sally:
We should have known not to believe
And things would not have turned so bad

Jack:
It's true his plan was to deceive
But that should not make you so sad

Sally:
But danger waits at every turn

Jack:
And I am ready
To set things right here

Sally:
How can you say that you will be okay?
And come back another day?
What will become of our dear town?
Now that we've let our leader down

Jack:
You know, dear Sally, that's not true
We can take this town back, me and you

Sally:
There's so much danger yet to face

Jack:
But I'm not worried, back home I hurried

Jack and Sally:
Now we must stop
That evil Oogie's scheme
And save our Halloween

Sally:
We should have known not to believe
And things would not have turned so bad

Jack:
It's true his plan was to deceive
But that should not make you so sad

Sally:
But danger waits at every turn

Jack:
And I am ready
To set things right here

Sally:
How can you say that you will be okay?
And come back another day?
What will become of our dear town?
Now that we've let our leader down

Jack:
You know, dear Sally, that's not true
We can take this town back, me and you

Sally:
There's so much danger yet to face

Jack:
But I'm not worried, back home I hurried

Sally:
You surely will
Now we all count on you
To see this trouble through
We should have known not to believe
And things would not have turned so bad

Jack:
It's true his plan was to deceive
But that should not make you so sad

Sally:
But danger waits at every turn

Jack:
And I am ready
To set things right here

Sally:
How can you say that you will be okay?
And come back another day?
What will become of our dear town?
Now that we've let our leader down

Jack:
You know, dear Sally, that's not true
We can take this town back, me and you

Sally:
There's so much danger yet to face

Jack:
But I'm not worried, back home I hurried

Jack and Sally:
If we work hard
We'll overcome our shame
And beat him at his game
