The Lyrics

The birth of man, Shelley style....
Neck plugs in sockets
Got lightning, now gonna use it
The tension
It's my creation,
Gonna raise you, make you, serve God notice

Some notion, new life promotion
I've been sewing uh, corpses seaming
Not treason, libido appeasing.
Gonna strike you, jolt you, lightning focused

Watch him move his arms,
Watch him kick his legs,
Gonna town defile,
Gotta plan some fear-prep,
Gonna crush in fingers,
Gonna see my, my, my, abhoration

Now he's going to make you scream--there's nobody out there
Who still believes
His special, potential,
Will be to catch that small town's attention, he will succeed!

They will fear him, he'll empty the streets
In pond-a girl sank, new heat
Got torches. They're waving at him
Gonna burn you, sight unfocused.

Gonna chain your arms,
Gonna chain your legs,
Breakout in style,
Gonna hide in windmill
Gonna get town's anger, gon' burn my my my new creation.

Oh... cause he's gonna make them scream
His forehead's out there, the scars you see
Potential, threat special
You're gonna burn my new life creation, but please save me!

'Cause I have a sequal see
There's no woman out there, give him some glee
Her special, credentials
Is a head of hair like a bee bonnet, she'll be a scream.

Ooooooooo, then you talk
Ooooooooo, as you stalk

The one time Brooks doesn't put Madeline in the female lead .... Sorry about the miscast. To make it up to you, will reveal the one line censored out of "Blazing Saddles":

Actual movie scene (totally dark):
Lily: Is it twue what they say about black men?
(Fx: ripping noise, as pants coming undone)
Lily: It's twue! It's twue!

Original, but censored, reply:
Madame, please! You're sucking on my forearm.

Reading this seems like having a bad dream about AL Franken and Barney Franks, who just seem to be a bit more sacrier than the Frankenstein "monster". Hadn't seen a "Frankie" out here in a while - nice job Mark.

This parody amuses me as it is both horror themed and scientific. I love it. 555 Volts!

(ABC5) I only know two things about Frankenstein: 1)that's the name of his creator, not the monster 2) his basic appearance. Other than that, nada. Soooo I couldn't really get into this parody as much I wanted to. Ah well.

You're welcome Mark. This song kind of reminds me of the film Igor. You should get it out sometime, it's a pretty funny twist on the whole monster film genre.

Until now, I never knew the name of the OS (not a favorite of mine), but reading this parody to it made it more than tolerable. You've created a monster here, Mark.
