  • Monster Mash

    I was working in the lab late one night.
    When my eyes beheld an eerie sight.
    And my monster, from his slab began to rise.
    And suddenly to my surprise…
    He did the mash! He did the monster mash!
    He did the mash! It was a graveyard smash!
    He did the mash! It caught on in a flash!
    He did the mash! He did the monster mash!

    From my laboratory in the castle east,
    to the master bedroom where the vampires feast.
    The ghouls all came from their humble abode,
    to get a jolt from my electrode.
    They did the mash! They did the monster mash!
    They did the mash! It was a graveyard smash!
    They did the mash! It caught on in a flash!
    They did the mash! They did the monster mash!

    The zombies were having fun, the party had just begun.
    The guests included Wolfman, Dracula and his son.
    The scene was rocking, all were digging the sound.
    Igor on chains backed by his baying hounds.
    The Coffin Bangers were about to arrive,
    with their vocal group The Crypt-kicker Five.
    They played the mash! They played the monster mash!
    They played the mash! It was a graveyard smash!
    They played the mash! It caught on in a flash!
    They played the mash! They played the monster mash!

    Out from his coffin Drac's voice did ring.
    Seems he was troubled by just one thing.
    He opened the lid and shook his fist
    and said,"Whatever happened to my Transylvania Twist?"
    It's now the mash! It's now the monster mash!
    It's now the mash! And it's a graveyard smash!
    It's now the mash! It caught on in a flash!
    It's now the mash! It's now the monster mash!

    Now everything's cool Drac's a part of the band.
    And my monster mash is the hit of the land.
    For you, the living,this mash was meant too.
    When you get to my door, tell them Boris sent you.
    Then you can mash! Then you can monster mash!
    Then you can mash! And do my graveyard smash!
    Then you can mash! You'll catch on in a flash!
    Then you can mash! Then you can monster mash!
