Monster Mash

Bobby Pickett (1962)

{t:Monster Mash}
{artist:Bobby Pickett (1962)}
{c:verse 1}
I was [C]working in the lab late one night
When my [Am]eyes beheld an eerie sight 
For my [F]monster from his slab began to rise 
And [G]suddenly to my surprise

{soc}
(He did the [C]mash.) He did the monster mash.
(The monster [Am]mash.) It was a graveyard smash.
(He did the [F]mash.) It caught on in a flash.
(He did the [G]mash.) He did the monster mash.
{eoc}

{c:verse 2}
From my [C]laboratory in the castle east 
To the [Am]master bedroom where the vampires feast 
The [F]ghouls all came from their humble abodes 
To [G]get a jolt from my electrodes 

{soc}
(They did the [C]mash.) They did the monster mash.
(The monster [Am]mash.) It was a graveyard smash.
(They did the [F]mash.) It caught on in a flash.
(They did the [G]mash.) They did the monster mash.
{eoc}

{c:verse 3}
The [C]zombies were having fun 
The [Am]party had just begun 
The [F]guests included Wolf Man 
[C]Dracula and his son
{c:verse 4}
The [C]scene was rockin', all were digging the sounds
[Am]Igor on chains, backed by his baying hounds 
The [F]Coffin-Bangers were about to arrive
With their [C]vocal group, "The Crypt-Kicker Five"

{soc}
(They played the [C]mash.) They played the monster mash.
(The monster [Am]mash.) It was a graveyard smash.
(They played the [F]mash.) It caught on in a flash.
(They played the [G]mash.) They played the monster mash.
{eoc}

{c:verse 5}
[C]Out from his coffin, Drac's voice did ring 
[Am]Seems he was troubled by just one thing 
He [F]opened the lid and shook his fist 
And said, "[G]Whatever happened to my Transylvania Twist"? 

{soc}
(Itís now the [C]mash.) Itís now the monster mash.
(The monster [Am]mash.) And itís a graveyard smash.
(Itís now the [F]mash.) Itís caught on in a flash.
(Itís now the [G]mash.) Itís now the monster mash.
{eoc}

{c:verse 6}
Now [C]everything's cool, Drac's a part of the band 
And my [Am]Monster Mash is the hit of the land 
For [F]you, the living, this mash was meant too 
When you [G]get to my door, tell them Boris sent you 

{soc}
(Then you can [C]mash.) Then you can monster mash.
(The monster [Am]mash.) And do my graveyard smash.
(Then you can [F]mash.) You'll catch on in a flash.
(Then you can [G]mash.) Then you can monster mash.
{eoc}
