Monkey, monkey: Part two
Monkey Monkey: Part Two
Apes are our equals,
So set free our people!
Let them find the freedom they have never had.
Let them live once more in paradise.
Treat them as you would a man.
The chimpanzee is just like me.
I think I’m related to the monkey in this theory.
So set the Baboon free!
Plant a tree!
Build a home and tear down your zoo.
Let my people be with their own;
Not just here to entertain you.
The monkey mind is the equal of mine,
They have such ingenuity.
The monkey mind is free, compared to mine,
So set my people free!
Lock us up in your cages, or let us become free.
Let us be free to pee, wherever we please.
In this jungle of yours, we can no longer await death.
We can no longer live here, in such a filthy mess.
Set the monkey free from captivity!
Let it do as it wishes and it will make itself happy.
