  Boogie Man
Words and music ©2005 Dennis Carlan

Well it was just the other night I'd say ‘bout half past ten
My baby said to me, "Hey let's do it again"
There's nothing I would do to displease that girl
So I said, "Okay baby, let's give it a whirl"
When all of a sudden, the ceiling started falling down

I grabbed my shirt, grabbed my pants, put on my hat
Was out the door and up the stairs in ten seconds flat
The sounds were getting louder [and] the floor it was a rocking
I didn't think they heard me, but I kept right on a knocking
The door opened up, let me tell you what I saw

It was the Boogie Man
It was the Boogie Man
He played a slide trombone [and] he wasn't alone
He had a boogie band
He told me, "Go and get your baby and
Do the boogie all night long"

I hurried down the stairs, [and] jumped back in the bed
Told my baby everything the Boogie Man said
Folks above were dancing, rockin' and a reelin'
We held each other tight and then we stared up at the ceiling
[When] It opened right up, let me tell you what I saw

(Chorus)

It was the Boogie Man
It was the Boogie Man
He played a slide trombone [and] he wasn't alone
He had a boogie [woogie] band
He told me, "Go and get your baby and
Do the boogie all night, go and get your baby and
Do the boogie all night, go and get your baby and
Do the boogie all night long"
