Monster Mash 
Bobby (Boris) Pickett

G G
I was working in the lab late one night
Em Em
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
C C
For my monster from his slab began to rise
D D
And suddenly to my surprise

G G
He did the mash

He did the monster mash
Em Em
The monster mash

It was a graveyard smash
C C
He did the mash

It caught on in a flash
D D
He did the mash

He did the monster mash

G G
From my laboratory in the castle east
Em Em
To the master bedroom where the vampires feast
C C
The ghouls all came from their humble abodes
D D
To get a jolt from my electrodes

G G
They did the mash
They did the monster mash
Em Em
The monster mash
It was a graveyard smash
C C
They did the mash
It caught on in a flash
D D
They did the mash
They did the monster mash

C C
The zombies were having fun
D D
The party had just begun
C C
The guests included Wolf Man
D D
Dracula and his son

G G
The scene was rockin', all were digging the sounds
Em Em
Igor on chains, backed by his baying hounds
C C
The Coffin-Bangers were about to arrive
D D
With their vocal group, "The Crypt-Kicker Five"

G G
They played the mash
They played the monster mash
Em Em
The monster mash
It was a graveyard smash
C C
They played the mash
It caught on in a flash
D D
They played the mash
They played the monster mash

G G
Out from his coffin, Drac's voice did ring
Em Em
Seems he was troubled by just one thing
C C
He opened the lid and shook his fist
D D
And said, "Whatever happened to my Transylvania twist?"

G G
It's now the mash
It's now the monster mash
Em Em
The monster mash
And it's a graveyard smash
C C
It's now the mash
It's caught on in a flash
D D
It's now the mash
It's now the monster mash

G G
Now everything's cool, Drac's a part of the band
Em Em
And my monster mash is the hit of the land
C C
For you, the living, this mash was meant too
D D
When you get to my door, tell them Boris sent you

G G
Then you can mash
Then you can monster mash
Em Em
The monster mash
And do my graveyard smash
C C
Then you can mash
You'll catch on in a flash
Then you can mash
D D
Then you can monster mash
