Victor took the time today to throw some light on the subject:
Note: The following lyrics are the original ones, a few changes had to be made in order to make the tune sound more CATCHY.
(Universal Movie logo 1930´s)
A whole bunch of ancient shadows made it to the screen
In a time where silent movies were a HIT
A hunchback of crowned head (The Hunchback of Notre Dame - 1923)
and Erik were the advance (Erik, The Phantom of the Opera - 1925)
of the folks with the longest fangs (Dracula - 1931)
Run to the castle and enjoy the universal horrors
Bela was so dark (Bela Lugosi)
but Boris was so sweet!!! (Boris Karloff)
Hold to your torches and meet the universal horrors
Enjoy the swirling mist,
white zombies and the creeps (White Zombie - 1932)
Watch where you step there is a man struggling in the basement
A spider wants him dead
He is shrinking fast my dear
(The Incredible Shrinking Man - 1957)
British invasión tried in vain to bring new terrors
Great supporting cast but Hammer did not last
It gives me the creeps just to think of the universal horrors
Princess of the dawn...
Lee was good at it but Lugosi was immortal (Christopher Lee, Dracula in the series of the Hammer Horror films)
Son of Frankenstein, the stories were the same (Son of Frankenstein - 1939)
(Lon Chaney Jr. was Larry Talbot in The Wolf Man - 1941)
I still remember well when Larry Talbot was Lon Chaney, Brilliant make- up job!!! A man turned into a Wolf!!!
rising from the grave,..
Thanks for making this song an Universal Hit!!!!
