The Monster

The Monster's Hop

Bert Convy

(Unknown, Contender 1314, 1958)

I heard strange noises coming from a house on the hill
So I crept up to the window and looked over the sill
My heart almost stopped, I nearly died of fright
By the dim candlelight I saw the strangest sight
There was Frankenstein and Dracula and Wolfman too
Dancin' with some zombies, what a ghastly crew
The ol' ugly vampire was doing the bop
And everything was rocking at the monster's hop

The bats were flying and the room was full
The crazy witch doctor was dancing with a ghoul
The organ was playing, but no-one was there
And the headless horseman was combing his hair
There was Frankenstein and Dracula and Wolfman too
Dancin' with some zombies, what a ghastly crew
The ol' ugly vampire was doing the bop
And everything was rocking at the monster's hop

I can't forget that empty house upon the hill
The night has fall, the monsters dance and oh what a thrill
The wind did howl, the night was black
I nearly lost my mind, I'm never ever going back
There was Frankenstein and Dracula and Wolfman too
Dancin' with some zombies, what a ghastly crew
The ol' ugly vampire was doing the bop
And everything was rocking at the monster's hop
