Monster Mash

Musik er uundværlig i 0. klasse og vi sluger den ene danske børnesang efter den anden eller danse til diverse popsange eleverne kender fra radioen eller fjernsynet.

Men hvis du virkelig vil have nogle sjove timer med eleverne hvor de udfordre deres fonologiske talenter og kan udvikle deres tilgang til bogstaver så skal du prøve Monster Mash.

Monster Mash er en kendt engelsk børnesang og har en fantastisk fortælling.

Bryd sangen op i så bider og fortæl historien mens eleverne lære de nye spændende engelske ord. Mange af dem kan de hurtigt genkende mens andre af ordrene kræver øvelse. Det lyder fantastisk når de begynder at synge med og har forståelsen af historien og de enkelte engelske ord.

Nogle af de sjoveste timer vi har haft 🙂

Her er teksten:

I was working in the lab late one night
When my eyes beheld an eerie sight
When my monster, from its slab, began to rise
And suddenly to my surprise

He did the Mash, he did the Monster Mash
And it’s a graveyard smash
He did the Mash, it caught on in a flash
He did the Mash, he did the Monster Mash

From my laboratory in the castle east
To the master bedroom, where the vampires feast
The ghouls all came from their humble abodes
To get a jolt from my electrodes

He did the Mash, he did the Monster Mash
The Monster Mash, and it’s a graveyard smash
He did the Mash, they caught on in a flash
He did the Mash, they did the Monster Mash

Well, the zombies were having fun
The party had just begun
The guests included the Wolfman
Dracula, and his son

(He did the mash)
The scene was rocking, all were digging the sound
Igor on chains, backed by his baying hounds
The Coffin Bangers were about to arrive
With their vocal group, The Crypt Keeper Five

They did the Mash, they did the Monster Mash
The Monster Mash, and it’s a graveyard smash
He did the Mash, they caught on in a flash
He did the Mash, they played the Monster Mash

Now everything is cool, Drac’s a part of the band
And my Monster Mash is the hit of the land
For you, the living, this Mash was meant, too
When you get to my door, tell them Only sent you

Mash, then you can Monster Mash
He did the Mash, and it’s a graveyard smash
Then you can Mash, you’ll catch on in a flash
Then you can Mash, then you can Monster Mash

Wha-oo
Monster mash
Monster mash
Oh, Monster mash
Oh!
