Frankenstein

It'd take a brain as big as Einstein
To give a brain-transplant to Frankenstein
To make from multiple carcasses, instantly, a living dead
 
Gather, and sow together the pieces
The nose, the eyes, the lips and the skin
The nerve junctions, fixed to the neck with nuts
 
It'd take a brain as big as Einstein
To give a brain-transplant to Frankenstein
To make from multiple carcasses, instantly, a living dead
 
But it also took an assistant
Who had destroyed the heart accidentally
And had given him that of an assassin
 
It'd take a brain as big as Einstein
To give a brain-transplant to Frankenstein
To make from multiple carcasses, instantly, a living dead
 
After some electric shocks
It startet to strut around
Then, toppling over bunsen burners and retort chambers, it disappeared
 
It'd take a brain as big as Einstein
To give a brain-transplant to Frankenstein
To make from multiple carcasses, instantly, a living dead
 
"I'll be with you on your wedding day"
The colossus had promised the doctor
But when the bride arrived, he strangled her
 
Thanks!
thanked 6 times

His brother's name was Jubal; he was the father of all
who play stringed instruments and pipes. (Genesis 4:21)

The second line is not about creating another Frankenstein, it's about transplanting a brain into Frankenstein. "un autre" means "a brain but not Einstein's brain" Regular smile
I think you forgot to translate "Faire de plusieurs cadavres"
