The Lyrics

In any kind of decent world, no one would ever parody this song. It's a ridiculously silly song and the parody is just as ridiculous. Hope you enjoy. And this version has a lot of repeats in it, so without the music to sing along with, the novelty get's old pretty fast. My point here is that the music itself greatly enhances the parody.
He has risen from the grave
What grave? The grave in the tower
What tower? Tower gone coo-coo
Who knew? You knew
Knew what? he's risen from the grave

I saw my Franky, oh I named him Frankenstein
He blew a fuse
My Franky's mind was wrong
How could Igor confuse
Which brain to choose

What kind of body parts to use
Face that's pail
And limbs that go stale
Harness the lightning
Now Frank's not dead
"Moaning"

Rise Franky, rise (rise Franky, rise)
Rise Franky, rise (rise Franky, rise)
All your parts did not survive
Walk Franky, walk (walk Franky, walk)
Walk Franky, walk (walk Franky, walk)
But from them I can contrive
He's my Franky, HE'S ALIVE

Franky was angry, he had left something behind
He lost a screw
He went out on the town
Broke in a house or two
Now they can sue

How can he find replacement screws?
Long, sharp nails
And what if that fails?
I think this might sting
But Franky's dead
"Moaning and chains"

Dance Franky, dance (dance Franky, dance)
Dance Franky, dance (dance Franky, dance)
Soon your feet will get a rash
Stop, Franky, stop (stop Franky, stop)
Stop, Franky, stop (stop Franky, stop)
Take light steps and you won't smash
This is not the monster mash
Dance Franky, dance (dance Franky, dance)
Dance Franky, dance (dance Franky, dance)
Dance Franky, dance (dance Franky, dance)
Dance Franky, dance (dance Franky, dance)
Stop, Franky, stop (stop Franky, stop)
Stop, Franky, stop (stop Franky, stop)
This is NOT the monster mash
"Groaning and chains"

He has risen from the grave
What grave? The grave in the tower
What tower? Tower gone coo-coo
Who knew? You knew
Knew what? he's risen from the grave

Dance Franky, dance
Dance Franky, dance Franky
Wait Franky
"Groaning"

What kind of body parts to use
Face that's pail
And limbs that go stale
Harness the lightning
Man he's frightening

Rise Franky, rise
Rise Franky, rise
All your parts did not survive
Walk Franky, walk
Walk Franky, walk
But from them I can contrive
He's my Franky, HE'S ALIVE
Dance Franky, dance (dance Franky, dance)
Dance Franky, dance (dance Franky, dance)
Dance Franky, dance (dance Franky, dance)
PANTS Franky, PANTS (pants pull them up)
Stop, Franky, stop (stop Franky, stop)
Stop, Franky, stop
Monster mash this cannot be
Stop that Franky
Dance Franky, dance (dance Franky, dance)
Dance Franky, dance (dance Franky, dance)
Dance Franky
He's my he's my Franky, HE'S ALIVE
Dance Franky, dance (dance Franky, dance)
Dance Franky, dance (dance Franky, dance)
Dance Franky, dance (dance Franky, dance)
Dance Franky, dance (dance Franky, dance)
Dance Franky, dance (dance Franky, dance)
Dance Franky, dance (dance Franky, dance)
Dance Franky, dance (dance Franky, dance)
Dance Franky, dance (dance Franky, dance)
It's never too late to remember Halloween.

And a before-hand thanks to anyone who looks this far down on this ridiculously long list of songs today.

ROFL... this one appeals to my somewhat twisted sense of humour - can't remember the original that well, must admit, but it read through pretty well.

Thanks, Philbert.

(ABC) I have seen "Labyrinth" twice in my lifetime, yet I don't remember the song at all. Shows how great it is, I guess. :) This read well, though, I could see Bowie warbling this in his contralto vocal range. 454.

(ABC) This one gave me nightmares. No, not those kind of nightmares. In 1988 I spent 14 HORRIBLE days in Hamilton, Ontario in January, stuck in a house with two teens who had Labyrinth on video and thought it was the greatest movie ever made and played it over and over and over, especially re-running all the Bowie 'crotch-shots'.... shudder. Good parody tho'.

That's rough, Merry. The movie is good if you watch it once every couple of years, but it's NOT a movie I'd want to be subjected to over and over. Thanks Merry and thanks Agri. Now that you mention it, I can kind of see him singing this. I honestly didn't imagine him specifically singing it when I wrote it.

(ABC) I like good Frankenstein parodies (wrote a couple myself, plug plug), and this is indeed a good one. 5's......now, 2nz, I'm waiting for you to do a parody of Carlos Santana's "Dance Sister Dance" called "Dance Franky Dance".

(ABC) DKTOS, but a good read, 2nz!
martha - June 06, 2004 - Report this comment

DKMBFAHITG (don't know my butt from a hole in the ground). Oops, I mean DKTOS. But there are some great lines in here, not the least of which is "PANTS, Franky, PANTS."
