Monsters Lead Such Interesting Lives

by Mel Torme
(From the cartoon short "Night of The Living Duck"
shown in the movie Daffy Duck's Quackbusters)




They're drenched in blood

Or caked with mud

You yell and scream

when one of them arrives

There is no denying

Monsters lead such interesting lives

They live in ooze

They've paid their dues

No brothers, sisters,

moms or dads or wives

Honest, I'm not lying

Monsters lead such interesting lives

When you see them coming down the street

You better not have weights tied to your feet

They'll steal your heart

Tear you apart

Limb from limb

On a wim

They'll suck your brains

And eat your remains

They'll slice you up with little forks and knives

They're never merry

They're oh so scary

Monsters lead such interesting lives

They're independent fellas

They don't live nine to fives

Monsters lead such interesting lives

Until I can find a midi, I have uploaded a low-quality sample wav file.
I strongly urge you to buy the cd Mel Torme: At The Movies if you enjoy the song. :)
