"Dr. Finkelstein's Song" is a song from the 2004 video game The Nightmare Before Christmas: Oogie's Revenge, based on the 1993 animated film The Nightmare Before Christmas. It features Dr. Finkelstein (who has been brainwashed by Oogie Boogie to make him his servant) fighting Jack, who is trying to reason with him.

The song is performed by Dr. Finkelstein's voice actor Jess Harnell and Jack Skellington's voice actor Chris Sarandon.

Lyrics

This town has changed, my boy
Since you've been away!
Without a Pumpkin King
It's Oogie Boogie's way!

Doctor, please!
Oh, can't you see you're wrong?

You were the king
But now you're nothing but prey!
Oogie Boogie is back
And he's planning to stay!

It's a crazy web you're weaving!
Oogie Boogie will soon be leaving!

Doctor, please!
It's not too late!

All my machines will seal your fate!

My lasers will slice you!
My knives will cut deep!
And when it's all over
Sally, she will weep!

The days of your good natured
Mayhem are through!
I'll tear up this town!
And I'm starting with you!

Well, now, my boy
It seems you've lost your crown!
In a few mere moments
You'll be six feet in the ground!

Stop at once!
Can't you see this is absurd?

No more tricks!
Your friends are now your foes!
And now this dance is
Nearing its close

All these people that you're hurting
Oh, good doctor, it's disconcerting

Doctor, please!
Your thinking is all wrong!

In a moment finally you'll be gone!

Your intentions are evil!
Your thoughts are all bad!
The thing that you work for
Is no more than a cad!

When finally I get that
Foul brain out of you
You'll see no more foe
But a friend that is true!

This town has changed, my boy
Since you've been away!
Without a Pumpkin King
It's Oogie Boogie's way!

Doctor, please!
Oh, can't you see you're wrong?

You were the king
But now you're nothing but prey!
Oogie Boogie is back
And he's planning to stay!

It's a crazy web you're weaving!
Oogie Boogie will soon be leaving!

Doctor, please!
It's not too late!

All my machines will seal your fate!

My lasers will slice you!
My knives will cut deep!
And when it's all over
Sally, she will weep!

The days of your good natured
Mayhem are through!
I'll tear up this town!
And I'm starting with you!

Well, now, my boy
It seems you've lost your crown!
In a few mere moments
You'll be six feet in the ground!

Stop at once!
Can't you see this is absurd?

No more tricks!
Your friends are now your foes!
And now this dance is
Nearing its close

All these people that you're hurting
Oh, good doctor, it's disconcerting

Doctor, please!
Your thinking is all wrong!

In a moment finally you'll be gone!

My blades are now spinning!
My creations are large!
When they move towards you
There's no question who's in charge!

If by some chance
You survive the attack
There'll be many more
You'd better watch your back!

This town has changed, my boy
Since you've been away!
Without a Pumpkin King
It's Oogie Boogie's way!

Doctor, please!
Oh, can't you see you're wrong?

You were the king
But now you're nothing but prey!
Oogie Boogie is back
And he's planning to stay!

It's a crazy web you're weaving!
Oogie Boogie will soon be leaving!

Doctor, please!
It's not too late!

All my machines will seal your fate!

My lasers will slice you!
My knives will cut deep!
And when it's all over
Sally, she will weep!

The days of your good natured
Mayhem are through!
I'll tear up this town!
And I'm starting with you!

Well, now, my boy
It seems you've lost your crown!
In a few mere moments
You'll be six feet in the ground!

Stop at once!
Can't you see this is absurd?

No more tricks!
Your friends are now your foes!
And now this dance is
Nearing its close

All these people that you're hurting
Oh, good doctor, it's disconcerting

Doctor, please!
Your thinking is all wrong!

In a moment finally you'll be gone!

You shoot and attack me
It rolls off my back!
I'm not your enemy
I'm the Pumpkin King, Jack!

When this is all over
Good friends we will be!
You'll praise Oogie no more!
You can take that from me!
