The Lyrics

found a brain, so pretty, here, this mornin'
hopin' its sane, not messed up and derailed
fifteen brains and fifteen useless minds cleared
three were drunkards, a dozen, mad, when unveiled
all along, been called an oddity
folks think i'm playin' god, ya see
but they're wrong...i'm top dog in my field
robbin' brains should bring no shame
boneyards full...so in, i came
cause this graveyard...has a bunch that i wanna steal

this mornin' they buried ya...i want you
you'll be cozy in my fated son
i've a brain that only recently was stolen
gonna get five million volts when the storm clouds come

people claim i'm an old fool and a sluggard
visit my joint, they'd realize what's in store
on a wooden rack...there lies my model
soon he'll be...lumberin' 'cross the floor
yes, my son will room and board here
and my son will be so dear
for his father's magic caused him to be real
mothers ?...we don't need those creeps
a brain will end his mindless sleep
when its in him...he'll prevail with thinkin', deep

this mornin' they buried ya...i want you
you'll be cozy in my fated son
i've a brain that only recently was stolen
gonna get five million volts when the storm clouds come

night time and a pretty stormy evenin'
workin' hard to finish up my feat
halfway home...he'll breathe air by mornin'
no more dim and misty darkness...he'll be bright as can be
the folks in town are peeved, it seems
they want to end my life's dream
lots of hate mail...livid at my views
they'll conduct an ugly march again
sayin' frankenstein, you must refrain
my son's got to disappear..and i guess me too

this mornin' they buried ya...i want you
you'll be cozy in my fated son
i've a brain that only recently was stolen
gonna get five million volts when the storm clouds come

A Whale of a parody. Shall 'e get fives? Absolutely. You are a levity leviathan in the realm of syllable-matching!

You've created a Monster here, sir. A Monster parody, that is. And now all the townspeople and villagers are chasing after you brandishing their fives and laughing madly. Well, I'm sure you get what you deserve for this ~ ~ ~

This is electrifying, but wouldn't it have been better if you waited for Halloween? This is a hard tune to work with so good job on that.
