The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

Here comes Igor swinging old dead bodies
He-shop-under-a graveyard any day

Here comes Igor swinging eyes of a woman
Down in the tunnels, trying to make dead raise

And Doctor Victor, he got the potion!
Oh yeah, a stormy day!

Animation-devotion
Lightning turns the night-time into the day


The thunderstorm's right over Frankie's castle
The lightning bolts cut like a knife

And they do the shock
They do the shock of life
Yeah
They do the shock of life


Here comes Frankenstein, he'll tell you the story
Glands he found through cuttin' grooves

Doctor Victor wants the power and the glory
When he makes shockin' news

He got the madness, he got weird notions!
Oh yeah, the Doc's insane!

Medication, would show him,
Turning dead to life's mind's sick little play


That thunderstorm's right over Victor's castle
Them lightning bolts slice like a knife

And they do the shock
They do the shock of life
Yeah
They do the shock of life


Here comes Monster, swinging arms like tree-trunks:
"OOO-GAGA-OOGA, FIRE BAD, I SAY!"

Here comes Monster, blinking eyes in the sun-room
Up from the tunnels, trying to take the day

It got bolt-action
Jawbone commotion
Oh yeah, its voice can bray!

Dead but flailin', in motion,
Running up the windmill to get away


And after all the cables 'n chains are locked
The thunder's strong and all the lightning's like a knife

It starts to walk
After the shock of life
Yeah
After the shock of life

(instrumental ending)

Brilliant, Johnny. This ranks right up there with Joh Barry's recent Frankenstein parody as pure genius. 555
