They call me the Boogie Man

They call me the Boogie Man They call me the Boogie Man...cause, that's my name I'll always be around to drive your kids insane Nobody wants to have what I got When I get sick, man I'm covered in snot I'm the Boogie Man Yeah, that's my name Today I sneezed so bad that it felt I was gonna explode It left a trail like a snail, when I sneeze I really unload I made plans to see a doctor about my nose A few box of Kleenex and I'll be ready to go Cause I'm the Boogie Man That's my name They call me the Boogie Man...cause, that's my name I'll always be around to drive your kids insane Nobody wants to have what I got When I get sick, man I'm covered in snot Yeah, I'm the Boogie Man That's my name... - Adults are always try'na say that I'm not real But turn out the lights and hear the children squeal I'm inside their closet, I'm under their bed You'll think your kids have gone and lost their head They'll call me the Boogie Man cause, that's my name Yes I'm the Boogie Man, that's my name
-Example of original https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=PGdWmexwJok When I was very young my mother once tried to scare me by saying "if you don't go to bed the Boogie man will get you!" But my response, as she has told me many times, was a sarcastic " give me a break mom, what's he gonna do put boogers on me? Really. ". A bogeyman is meant to embody childhood fear, right. I wonder why they now pronounce his name so similar to the dirt within our noses.
