From the Grave to the Cradle

Ygor grabs him, explains to him twice
That "The nabbing of wains isn't nice."
German moms and pops worry,
And form mobs in a hurry,
Plus "My crabby old brain should suffice."

The Monster wants to put a little girl's brain in his noggin: Béla Lugosi, Lon Chaney Jr and Janet Ann Gallow in The Ghost of Frankenstein (Erle C. Kenton; 1942). Thanks to David Cairns for digging up the title. Limerick Lexicon: wain is Scottish for child
