*This is the Monster Mash off of the Cuts From the Crypt album, the other version of the
song (possibly the one from the monster mash E.P.) is missing the 2nd bridge that goes:

Out of his coffin Drac’s voice did ring
Seems he was troubled by just one thing
Opened the lid, and shook his fist
And said “Whatever happened to my Transylvanian Twist?”

There are many different tabs for this song, (many use 8th notes, but listen to the song,
it’s 16th notes, and they forget the slide at the end of the bridge, once again
listen to the song carefully and you can hear it) but in the Monster Mash video this is
how Jerry Only plays it, download the video off of kazza and watch his fingering.

Lyrics:
Good evening!
I was working in the lab late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
My monster, from its slab, began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise

He did the Mash, he did the Monster Mash
The Monster Mash, and it's a graveyard smash
He did the Mash, it caught on in a flash
He did the Mash, he did the Monster Mash

From my laboratory in the castle east
To the master bedroom, where the vampires feast
The ghouls all came from their humble abodes
To get a jolt from my electrodes

They did the Mash, they did the Monster Mash
The Monster Mash, it was a graveyard smash
They did the Mash, they caught on in a flash
They did the Mash, they did the Monster Mash

The zombies were having fun
The party had just begun
The guests included Wolfman
Dracula, and his son

The scene was rocking, all were digging the sound
Igor on chains, backed by his baying hounds
The Coffin Bangers were about to arrive
With their vocal group, The Crypt Keeper Five

They did the Mash, they played the Monster Mash
The Monster Mash, it was a graveyard smash
They played the Mash, they caught on in a flash
They played the Mash, they played the Monster Mash

Out of his coffin his voice did ring
Seems he was troubled by just one thing
Opened the lid, shook his fist, and said
"Whatever happened to my Transylvania Twist?"

It's now the Mash, it's now the Monster Mash
The Monster Mash, and it's a graveyard smash
It's now the Mash, it caught on in a flash
It's now the Mash, it's now the Monster Mash

Now everything is cool, Drac's a part of the band
My Monster Mash is the hit of the land
For you, the living, this Mash was meant, too
When you get to my door, tell them Only sent you

Then you can Mash, then you can Monster Mash
The Monster Mash, another graveyard smash
Then you can Mash, you'll catch on in a flash
Then you can Mash, you did the Monster Mash

The Monster Mash...
