[VERSE 1]
My mama told me when I was quite young
Don’t be a bad boy and try to run
Or he’s gonna get ya
He’s gonna get ya

So little girl that’s why I’m tellin’ you
Don’t you dare break my heart in two
Or he’s gonna get you
He’s gonna get you

[CHORUS]
Say, the boogie man’s gonna get you
If you’re messing around in the dark
Playing with my love and affection
That ain’t smart, no that ain’t smart, oh

[VERSE 2]
So little girl that’s why I’m telling you
Take my love, take my money
But don’t you dare break my heart in two
Or he’s gonna get you (He’s gonna get you)
He’s gonna get you (He’s gonna get you)

[CHORUS]
Say, the boogie man’s gonna get you
If you’re messing around in the dark
Playing with my love and affection
That ain’t smart, no that ain’t smart, OH

Look Out!
Look Out!
Here He Comes Man
There He Is….Ruun!!!

The boogie man will get ya
The bootie man will get ya

The boogie man’s gonna get you
If you’re a bad girl
The boogie man’s gonna get you
Don’t make me sad girl

Here He Comes
Here He Comes
Here He Comes
Here He Comes…Wooooooo!

[CHORUS]
The boogie man’s gonna get you
If you’re messing around in the dark
Playing with my love and affection
That ain’t smart, no that ain’t smart, oh

The boogie man’s gonna get you (I’m crazy ’bout you baby)
If you’re messing around in the dark (I’m crazy ’bout you girl}
Playing with my love and affection
That ain’t smart, no that ain’t smart, oh
