Misc Unsigned Bands
The Monster Mash:Bobby (Boris) Pickett. Hit the Pop Charts in Aug./'62. By that October it was #1. INTRO: NC Good evening. Ahahahaha! #1. G I was working in the lab late one night, Em When my eyes beheld an eerie sight. C For my monster from his slab began to rise, D And suddenly to my surprise. CHORUS: G He did the mash, he did the monster mash. Em The monster mash, it was a graveyard smash. C He did the mash, it caught on in a flash. D He did the mash, he did the monster mash. #2. From my laboratory in the castle east, To the master bedroom where the vampires feast. The ghouls all came from their humble abodes, To catch a jolt from my electrodes. CHORUS: CHORUS:#2. C D The zombies were having fun..The party had just begun. C D The guests included Wolf Man..Dracula and his son. #3. 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." CHORUS: #4. 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 Transylvanian Twist?" CHORUS: G It's now the mash..It's now the monster mash. Em The monster mash..and it's a graveyard smash. C It's now the mash..It caught on in a flash. D It's now the mash..It's now the monster mash. #5. 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. CHORUS: G Then you can mash..then you can monster mash. Em The monster mash..And do my graveyard smash. C Then you can mash..You'll catch on in a flash, D Then you can mash..Then you can monster mash.(x2) A sixties smash from Kraziekhat.
