about

"In their new single, mystery infused pop duo Charming Disaster follow in the tradition of goth-rockers like the Cramps, Bauhaus, and Siouxsie & the Banshees." - Spacelab

"A dark love song with an infernal monster twist! It is camp as fuck, it sounds like a deleted song from the Rocky Horror Picture Show soundtrack...this one will get every monster loving death heart skipping a beat." - Old Style Music Nights

“A retro rock throwback to when novelty songs were embraced...a groovy and goth romp with brilliant lyrics.” - If It’s Too Loud

A monstrous love song inspired by retro novelty rock, channeling classic Halloween hits by way of Nick Cave & PJ Harvey -- or Boris Karloff & Elsa Lanchester. A must for any Halloween (or wedding!) playlist.

lyrics

Be my bride of Frankenstein
Girl I wanna make you mine
I'll give you a shiny rock
Zap you with electric shock

I got an updo with a lightning bolt
Come a little closer for a thousand volts
I'm gonna love you though you're not so smart
Say I do and I'll give you my monster heart

Igor and the doctor said
Someday son you'll still be dead
Good woman is hard to find
Make me one to make her mine

I got an updo with a lightning bolt
Come a little closer for a thousand volts
I'm gonna love you though you're not so smart
Say I do and I'll give you my monster heart

Fire bad
Fire bad
Put away your pitchfork baby don't be mad
Fire bad
Fire bad
Show me what you're doing in the doctor's lab

Stitch you up and set you free
Darling won't you marry me
Promise till death do we part
But for us that's just the start

I got an updo with a lightning bolt
Come a little closer for a thousand volts
I'm gonna love you though you're not so smart
Say I do and I'll give you my monster heart
Say I do and I'll give you my monster heart
Say I do and I'll give you my monster heart
Say I do and I'll give you my monster heart
