Monkey, monkey: Part one
Monkey, Monkey: Part One
Monkey, monkey, climbing up a tree,
Eating a banana, or laughing at your friends pee,
Monkey, monkey, with your friends and family;
Monkey, monkey, you’re so happy and free.
Monkey, monkey, chewing on a leaf,
Monkey, monkey, swinging through the trees,
Monkey, monkey, your so hairy,
Monkey, monkey, you live in bliss.
Monkey, monkey, you look so funny.
Monkey, monkey, you’ve got such a happy grin.
Monkey, monkey, you’re so cheeky;
But now little monkey, you’ve been caught by me.
Monkey, monkey, don’t fear me.
Monkey, monkey, stop screaming!
Monkey, monkey, worried about losing your family,
Monkey, monkey, you’re no longer free.
Monkey, monkey, welcome to the zoo, your sanctuary.
Monkey, monkey, imprisoned by me.
Monkey, monkey, you will make me wealthy.
Monkey, monkey, you will make me happy.
Monkey, monkey, you’re there for them to see,
Monkey, monkey, behind bars sat in your tire swing.
Monkey, monkey, why aren’t you happy?
Monkey, monkey, do something!
