TITLE: The Monster Mash
Lyrics and Chords

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 

/ G - / Em - / C - / D - /

{Refrain with He did}
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 

{Refrain with They did}

The zombies were having fun
The party had just begun
The guests included Wolfman
Dracula and his son 

/ C - / D - / C - / D - /

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 

{Refrain with They played}

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?" 

{Refrain with It's now}

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 

{Refrain with And you can mash}
