Music From The Bones

For this week’s Song Lyric Sunday prompt, Jim Adams wants us to turn our attention to songs that are associated with Heaven and/or Hell.

In my opinion you can’t have one without the other because that would be boring- on both a creative and spiritual level, so I chosen two songs to share today.

One is Kiss’ ” Heaven’s on Fire “- a jolly tribute to passion and the other is a tribute to Monsters- it’s a great arrangement of ” Monster Mash ” performed  Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band  that they performed on  the ‘Do Not Adjust Your Set’ comedy series which directly preceded and inspired Monty Python

Enjoy your visit to Heaven and Hell and…

Rock On!

I look at you and my blood boils hot
I feel my temperature rise
I want it all, give me what you got
It’s hunger in your eyes

I’m getting closer, baby hear me breathe
You know the way to give me what I need
Just let me love you and you’ll never leave

Feel my heat
Takin’ you higher
Burn with me
Heaven’s on fire
Paint the sky with desire
Angel fly
Heaven’s on fire
Woah

I got a fever ragin’ in my heart
You make me shiver and shake
Baby don’t stop, take it to the top
Eat it like a piece of cake

You’re comin’ closer, I can hear you breathe
You drive me crazy when you start to tease
You could bring the devil to his knees

Feel my heat
Takin’ you higher
Burn with me
Heaven’s on fire
Paint the sky with desire
Angel fly
Heaven’s on fire

Oh, heaven’s on fire
Oh, heaven’s on fire
Oh

I’m getting closer, baby hear me breathe
You know the way to give me what I need
Just let me love you and you’ll never leave

Feel my heat
Takin’ you higher
Burn with me
Heaven’s on fire
Paint the sky with desire
Angel fly
Heaven’s on fire
Feel my heat
Takin’ you higher
Burn with me
Heaven’s on fire

Paint the sky with desire
Angel fly
Heaven’s on fire
Feel my heat
Takin’ you higher
Burn with me
Heaven’s on fire

I was working in the lab late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
For my monster from his slab began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise

(He did the Mash)
He did the Monster Mash
(The Monster Mash)
It was 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)
It 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 Wolf Man
Dracula and his son
The scene was rockin’, all were diggin’ the sounds
Igor on chains, backed by his baying hounds
The coffin-bangers were about to arrive
With their vocal group, “The Crypt-Kicker Five”

(They played the Mash)
They played the Monster Mash
(The Monster Mash)
It was a graveyard smash
(They played the Mash)
It caught on in a flash
(They played the Mash)
They played the Monster Mash

Out from his coffin, Drac’s voice did ring
Seems he was troubled by just one thing
He opened the lid and 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’s caught on in a flash
(It’s now the Mash)
It’s now the Monster Mash

Now everything’s cool, Drac’s a part of the band
And 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 Boris sent you

(Then you can Mash)
Then you can Monster Mash
(The Monster Mash)
And do my graveyard smash
(Then you can Mash)
You’ll catch on in a flash
(Then you can Mash)
Then you can Monster Mash

Mmgrrrr (Monster Mash)
Easy, Igor, you impetuous young boy
Mmgrrrr, mash good
