Flashback – ‘Monster Mash’ Bobby Pickett (1964)



Bobby ‘Boris’ Pickett was an American singer/songwriter/actor and comedian. As a 9-year-old he watched many horror films. Lyrics at end.

American Bandstand 13 October 1964

(Category ‘Blasts from the past’ for more trips down memory lane)

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
