The Transylvania Polka

Words by Tony Geiss
Music by Sam Pottle
sung by The Count (Jerry Nelson)

When sad, we sing a mournful tune
Like creatures baying at the moon
But we all dance when things are fine
Yes, even Doctor Frankenstein
Ah, ha ha! Ha, ha, ha!

(Spoken: And what a dancer Frank is!
And what dance does he do? Three guesses! Ah, ah, ah!
Bobby Vinton, eat your heart out! )

Things that say "boo" are all rushing to do
The Translyvania Polka
Witches and elves are all teaching themselves
The Transylvania Polka
Goblins and ghouls, they are dancing like fools.
The Transylvania Polka
There's a mania in Rumania-
It's called the Polka from Transylvania!

All together now! Count with the Count!
(counts to the beat)
1, 2, 3, 4...1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8
1, 2, 3, 4...1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8
1, 2, 3, 4...1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8---1-2-3-4---1-2-3!

There's a mania in Rumania-
It's called the Polka from Translvania!
Hey!
