With your complicated apparatus
In your elaborate laboratory
Doctor Frankenstein won't you create us
Something terrifying for us to see

And ooh, we like to be frightened
We like to see something that takes away our breath
Now ooh, we like to be frightened
We like to see something that scares us half to death
Ooh-ooh-ooh

With your dangerous dental arrangement
In your creepy old crumbling chateau
Count Dracula showed us what "strange" meant
When you started in talking so slow

And ooh, we like to be frightened
We like to see something that takes away our breath
Now ooh, we like to be frightened
We like to see something that scares us half to death
Ooh-ooh-ooh

And when I take my baby to a movie show
It's got to be a horror flick or she won't go
I just want to tell you that it's out of sight
When it starts getting scary and she's holding me tight
(Hold me tight now!)

With your split-personality potion
That covers all your body with hair
Doctor Jekyll, won't you go through the motions
So Mister Hyde can give us a scare?

And ooh, we like to be frightened
We like to see something that takes away our breath
Now ooh, we like to be frightened
We like to see something that scares us half to death
Ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh
Ooh-ooh-ooh
