Monster_Mash_coverIl vostro amato lupacchiotto è qui per augurarvi un felice Natale, e per farlo ha scomodato un ospite degno delle più grandi occasioni, o meglio due: Lon Chaney Jr. e Bobby “Boris” Pickett. Il primo è una vecchia conoscenza da queste parti, quindi non mi dilungherò con le consuete presentazioni. Cosa che invece è il caso di fare per il secondo nome chiamato in causa.

Bobby Pickett è stato quello che si può definire un autore di genere. Le sue canzoni qui nella tana dell’uomo lupo sono particolarmente apprezzate visti i contenuti trattati. Quest’artista infatti negli anni ’60 ha dominato le classifiche statunitensi con la hit Monster Mash (rifatta in seguito dai Misfits), ed è anche stato l’autore di un altro brano, intitolato Monster’s Holiday. Un pezzo che già dal titolo si presenta adattissimo per un Natale in perfetto stile Universal.

Noi ve lo proponiamo in due versioni, la prima cantata dal nostro caro licantropo Lon Chaney Jr.:

Qui sotto trovate invece la versione originale della canzone, in collaborazione con i Crypt-Kickers, accompagnata dal testo:

It was the night before Christmas and all through the castle
My monsters were having a Yuletide hassle
The tree was all trimmed in ghoulish things
Like monster fangs and vampire wings
(It was a monster’s holiday)
But they were up to no good
(It was a monster’s holiday)
Didn’t act like good monsters should
(It was a monster’s holiday)
They found themselves a new play
(It was a monster’s holiday)
They planned to rob Santa’s sleigh
They were making a list and checking it twice
Frankenstein wanted a shiny new tryk
A new chain for Yarnush
A brace for Igor’s back
A speed shaver for Wolfman
A new cape for Drak
(It was a monster’s holiday)
But they were up to no good
(It was a monster’s holiday)
Didn’t act like good monster’s should
(It was a monster’s holiday)
They found themselves a new play
(It was a monster’s holiday)
They planned to rob santa’s sleigh
The Mummy was to signal from the castle roof
At the very first sound of a reindeer hoof
As Santa slid down the chimmney wall
The zombies were to make off with sleigh and all
From beyond the moat arose such a clatter
I jumped to the window to see what was the matter
Like a bolt of lightning it happened so quick
And there in our midst stood old Saint Nick
He began to dig down deep in his sack
And came up with the traction for Igor’s back
Drak got his cape
Franky’s tryk made him behave
Even Wolfman was happy now he can shave
(It was a monster’s holiday)
And all ended well
(It was a monster’s holiday)
And Santa was really swell
(It was a monster’s holiday)
No need to rob santa’s sleigh
(It was a monster’s holiday)
Maybe next year he’ll come back
So the children everywhere were spared the grief
Of losing their presents to a monster sleigh thief
Now the monsters love Santa and say they’ll behave
And never again rob sleighs or graves
(Repeat “it was a monster’s holiday” in background with the following)
Igor, what do you think of Santa now? “Arrrrrr…Santa good!”
And Santa said as he drove out of sight
(Dracula accent):”Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night blaaaa!”
Jingle bells jingle bells jingle all the way
Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh
Dashing through the snow
Where is that reindeer with the red nose blaaaa
On Dasher and Dancer and Comet and Cupid…
