The Nightmare Before Christmas: Finale

Tim Burton featuring Shiny Toy Guns (2008)

The Finale is the final song of the movie, The Nightmare Before Christmas. It is sung by Jack Skellington as he realizes that he is the Pumpkin King and that he must return to Halloween Town in order to help the citizens fix Christmas. Later, Santa thanks Jack for helping him save Christmas by bringing snow to Halloween Town. Jack and Sally sing together under the moonlight in the final scene as they lovingly embrace and kiss.

Written by Danny Elfman (1993)

Cyclops: Jack!
Corpse Father: Jack’s back!
Undersea Gal: Jack?
Winged Demon: Jack’s okay!
Offscreen Voice: He’s all right!

Chorus: Jack’s okay, and he’s back! Oh, yay!

(with Corpse Kid)
He’s all right!

(with the Mayor)
Let’s shout, make a fuss
Scream it out, wheee!

Jack is back now, everyone sing
In our town of Halloween…

(“What’s This?” verse)

Corpse Kid: What’s this?

Cyclops: What’s this?

Harlequin Demon: I haven’t got a clue…

Mr. Hyde: What’s this?

Clown with the Tear-Away Face: Why, it’s completely new!

Offscreen Voice: What’s this?

Wolfman: Must be a Christmas thing…

Offscreen Voice: What’s this?

Mayor: It’s really very strange…

Chorus: This is Halloween
Halloween, Halloween, Halloween

What’s this, what’s this? (verse repeated three more times)

(instrumental verse)

(“We’re Simply Meant to Be” verse)

Jack: My dearest friend, if you don’t mind
I’d like to join you by your side
Where we can gaze into the stars

(with Sally)

And sit together now and forever
For it is plain as anyone can see
We’re simply meant to be
