lyrics

Come sit a smack
At the Monster Shack
Come have yourself a real good time

Come listen to it
Jugband music
And drink a pint of monster slime

We’ll strum up here
While you dance down there
You can stomp and hoot and twirl

At the end of the night
You’ll be feelin’ alright
If you’re dancin’ with a monster girl

It’s the Monster Shack
Yeah, it’s the Monster Shack
Cut yourself some slack
And come join the pack
At the Jugband Monster Shack

When tomorrow comes
You may be in the slums
Beat like a rented mule

Workin’ all day
Just slavin’ away
Scarin’ kids like a ghoulish fool

Come quittin’ time
You’ll have done your crime
And you’ll be thinkin’ ‘bout how to get back

To the place that swings
Where you can do your thing
To the Jugband Monster Shack

It’s the Monster Shack
Yeah, it’s the Monster Shack
Cut yourself some slack
And come join the pack
At the Jugband Monster Shack

It’s the Monster Shack
Yeah, it’s the Monster Shack
Ya’ll come on back
To the shack attack
At the Jugband Monster Shack
