About Teenage Frankenstein

"Teenage Frankenstein" is the second single by American rock musician Alice Cooper from his 1986 album Constrictor. Though the single failed to chart, it helped to make Constrictor Cooper's highest charting album since 1980's Flush the Fashion. Along with 2 other Alice Cooper songs, "He's Back (The Man Behind the Mask)" and "Hard Rock Summer" (which was not featured on "Constrictor"), "Teenage Frankenstein" was written to be featured as part of the soundtrack to the horror film Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives. The 7" single featured a "live" version of "School's Out" as its B-side. The 12" single featured "School's Out (Recorded Live)" as well as a "live" version of "Only Women Bleed". Both versions were in fact originally recorded in the studio for the Alice Cooper a Paris TV special in 1982 during the Special Forces era, which were remixed in January 1987 with crowd noise to resemble "live" recordings. The song was written by Alice Cooper and Kane Roberts.

I'm the kid on the block
With my head made of rock
And I ain't got nobody
I'm the state of the art
Got a brain a la carte
I make the babies cry

I ain't one of the crowd
I ain't one of the guys
They just avoid me
They run and they hide
Are my colors too bright
Are my eyes set too wide?
I spent my whole life
Burning, turning

I'm a teenage Frankenstein
The local freak with the twisted mind
I'm a teenage Frankenstein
These ain't my hands 
And these legs ain't mine

Got a synthetic face
Got some scars and a brace
My hands are rough and bloody
I walk into the night
Women faint at the sight
I ain't no cutie-pie

I can't walk in the day
I must walk in the night
Stay in the shadows
Stay out of the light
Are my shoulders too wide
Is my head screwed on tight?
I spent my whole life burning
Burning, turning

I'm a teenage Frankenstein
The local freak with the twisted mind
I'm a teenage Frankenstein
These ain't my hands 
And these legs ain't mine
