A Classic Halloween Tune Just For Libraries

This Halloween night, there is much to be celebrating. Many libraries across the country were spared from having their doors shut for good. Times are tough but one thing is for certain, a world without libraries is scary indeed. In celebration of the spookiest night of the year and promoting libraries, here is a little parody that was written to the tune of "Monster Mash". Enjoy!

The Monster Book

I was in my library, late one night
when my eyes beheld an eerie sight.
In the Library a monster did appear
And he made it perfetly clear

He wants the book!
He wants the monster book
the monster book!
A tale with a scary hook,
He wants the book!
All the bookshelves shook,
He wants the Book !
He wants the monster book!

This surprised me not in least
for the trendy ghouls from the east
Came to the library just last week
Lookng for the book of which we speak.

They Read the book!
They read the monster book
The monster book!
A tale with a scary hook,
They read the book!
All the bookshelves shook,
They read the Book !
They read the monster book!

Now the zombies come in one by one
Reading spooky stories and having fun
Wolfman has his favorites, too.
Dracula reads to his son!


The library’s rockin to Frankie's page turning' beat.
Igor’s book club has a place to meet
Teen werewolves thinks thats just fine
Cause they reserve their books online.

They Read the book!
They read the monster book
The monster book!
A tale with a scary hook,
They read the book!
All the bookshelves shook,
They read the Book !
They read the monster book

A librarian’s note reached Drac’s coffin
Seems an overdue book brought him in.
He opened his lid, and did insist
"I did return the book “Transylvania Mist!”

They Read the book!
They read the monster book
The monster book!
A tale with a scary hook,
They read the book!
All the bookshelves shook,
They read the Book !
They read the monster book

Everything is cool, Drac’s on the Library board
The monster book has struck a cord.
For the living, this book was meant too
Come to the library, we'll check it out to you.
