Love sometimes comes to us in te most surprising places, as Doctor Frankenstein discovers.

Lyrics

My name is Doctor Frankenstein A scientist with a bold design
I'm working on a project that could change the human race
I've collected lots of body parts From toes to brain to spleen and heart
And stitched them all together like anatomy cut and paste
But staring at this being I'm getting an odd feeling
I'm supposed to be dispassionate but what a lovely face

I think I'm in love with my monster Is that such a terrible sin?
I put my very soul and my heart into him Well, it was somebody's my heart I put in
I think I'm in love with my monster Though yesterday he was a pile of meat
Today he is alive and is my hone-eypie 'Cos the brute looks so kind and so sweet

I wish I'd spent a bit more time In finding parts that were in their prime
Instead of robbing graveyards in the middle of the night
I should not have assembled him In my basement lab that is so dim
'Cos now he's all lop-sided with his left foot on his right
So what if he is ugly, I think that he is lovely
But each morning open up my eyes and get a terrible fright

Chorus

In no time I was on my knees to ask him if he'd marry me please
And finding him a dress was hard you could not call him petite
The wedding guests must have been surprised, 'cos when they finally saw the bride
They all jumped up as one and ran out screaming down the street
And I know it is unnatural, impossible, even laughable
But soon we will be hearing the patter of tiny feet

I know I'm in love with my monster Is that such a terrible sin?
I put my very soul and my heart into him Well, it was somebody's heart I put in
I know I'm in love with my monster At last I feel complete
He may be immense but I cherish him 'Cos the brute is so kind and so sweet
