Crawl up the back steps
Up to the back door
Reach up in the dark
Turn the handle a little more

Open up real slow
So the door won't creak
Look ahead and look behind
Don't shuffle your feet

Hey say, he's crazy, they say he's gone
We play our tricks, make up funny songs
Sneakin' around, feelin' badly
Sneaking up on Boo Radley

Hear the caterpillar crawl
Hear the bed buds bite
Hear the crickets scream
All the sounds of the night

Hear the sound of footprints
On the ground across the grass
Don't step on the lightning bugs
Watch the crack in your knees

Well they say, he's crazy, they say he's gone
We play our tricks, make up funny songs
Sneakin' around, feelin' badly
Sneaking up on Boo Radley

They say, he's funny, got a loose screw
Stay away, he's a threat to you
Give him a break, what do we know
Might turn out we would like him so
We fear what we just don't know

Well I heard he served a long time ago
Saw some things, we'll never know
We laugh and sneak around in the night
Fun and games but I know it's not right
Oh not right

Oh scared and fascinated
Ignorant we castigate him
Oh scared and fascinated
Ignorant we flagellate him

Oh they say, he's crazy, they say, he's gone
We play our tricks
Make up funny songs
Down the street, walkin' sadly

My little sister, loves him madly
Feelin' like the man from gladly
Sneaking up on Boo Radley
Sneaking up on Boo Radley
