“The Monster Mash” was written and performed by Bobby “Boris” Pickett in 1962.

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 Wolf Man,
Dracula and his son.
The scene was rockin’. All were digging the sounds.
Igor on chains, backed by his baying hounds.
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!
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?”

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 every thing’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!
