Monster Mash
Yep, it's been done before ... but not by ME.
About this creation






I was working in the lab late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight









For my monster from his slab began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise




He did the mash
He did the monster mash
The monster 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 abodes



to get a jolt from my electrodes.

They did the mash
They did the monster mash
The monster 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 rockin', all were digging the sounds




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
The monster 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




From out of 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
The monster mash
And it's a graveyard smash
It's now the mash
It's 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
The monster 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












This song is imprinted on my DNA, I think. Ever since I can remember hearing it as a wee lad in the late 60s and doing, along with my brothers and sisters, our own version of the dance in our costumes before heading out for trick or treat, I've love it. It's just one of those novelty songs that has staying power.

"Monster Mash" was sung by Bobby "Boris" Pickettand and performed by the Crypt Kickers. Written by Bobby Pickett and Leonard L. Capizzi.

Special thanks to Leda, but super special extra thanks to Lee Jones, who gave me a most precious zombie fig crafted by the late and much-missed Heather LegoGIRL. Also, this is a super shoutout to my buddy Chris Phipson, for whom Halloween is a very special day.

Thanks for the shout out man! And yes, for those "in the know" it IS a really special day for me and mine (wink). Great moc here! I especially loved using Golum for Igor, nice move there. Happy Halloween! ~ Chris.

Excellent work Dennis! I love all of the subtle details, with my favorite being the curtains in Drac's room. The song definitely has staying power...almost annoyingly so, but not as bad as the "Time Warp" which will get stuck in an endless loop inside someone's head like no one's business. See what I did there? :P
