Christopher Clark, Of Music (Ascap)

Hankenstein

Midnight in Montgomery
Full moon shining on a shack
Where a country music legend is about to be brought back
Cledus got the idea from the late night creature feature
And figured he would foller a similar procedure

Hankenstein

Now laid out on the table is the body of a man
In a white suit
Cowboy boots
And a guitar in his hand

He's hooked up to a tractor with a set of jumper cables
And if anything could start a cold cold heart a John Deere should be able.

Hankenstein

Now what's about to happen here is nothin' less than shockin
With a record player in the corner blaring Hey Good Lookin'
That foot began to tap along with that old 45
And you can hear old Cledus yelling uh oh it's alive!!!!!

Chorus:
Hankenstein
He's a honky-tonkin monster
Hankenstein
He's a honky-tonkin monster
Hankenstein
He's a honky-tonkin monster
Hankenstein

In no time Hankenstein was mo-anin' the blues
And Cledus has decided it's time to spread the news
They'll hit the road and put on shows all over the nation
Yeah, he's gonna be the next country music sensation

Hankenstein

Everyone still loves to hear the tale of old Kawliga
And they all sing and dance when he cuts loose on Jambalaya
Playing on the Opry stage was his final test
Now Hankenstein has become a monster success

Chorus

Lovesick in a hotel near the Mason Dixon Line
Hankenstein is sitting there so lonesome he could cry
He's had it with the life he leads singing all them tunes
Now he's out there somewhere honky tonkin howlin at the moon

Chorus

Hankenstein
He's a honky-tonkin monster
