The Lyrics

With thanks to Spaff for dreaming up the word... this is how Jane might feel come the morning after.
"Aaah-aaah"... Who was that?
"Aaah-aaaaaaaah"... Swingin' through the trees
Who was that?
"Aaah-aaaaaaaah"... hairy arms and knees

Tarzan - what ya swinging from?
Oh, man - what a hairy bum
Hot damn! Wond'ring if you'll tell me soon
You're a baboon
Although you don't speak a lot
I know you look pretty hot
And your talking is like listening to
Apes go "oo"

I saw all along
You're well-built and strong
And watching your pecs,
Well, I thought o' sex
I guess it's OK
If you have your way with me

Why'd I get the feeling that I've been insimianated?
Though you may be an
Ape, you ain't as hairy as some of the other guys I've dated
Did I kiss you? ew...
You look fine
On a vine
As you swing
On that thing
You turn me on, though
I know you're no
'cause they ain't so easily sated
Ook, ook, ook

You've got quite a friendly gaze
And I see you swing both ways
When you're hanging on a jungle vine
With an anaconda there
Could not help but stop and stare
With that snake between your thighs
It's quite a size

Jekyll or Hyde.. or possibly Clyde
Hair down your back, like you're a macaque
But I can detect you're Homo erectus.. whee!

Why'd I get the feeling that I've been insimianated?
Though you have been
A-monkeying around I think I might have been orang-ulated
Look like this, I
Could be wrong
You're King Kong
Could have been
Simian-y, seems to me
Are a no-go and gorillas shouldn't be fellated
Ook, ook, ook

Tarzan, whatcha howling for?
Hey man - what, you wanting more?
And if you are after one more time
That makes nine

Hey, I'm impressed, but man.. take a rest
'Cause I need a break, and some gibbon take
Don't want to demur, but that's quite lemur-ishly
Tell me

Why'd I get the feeling that I've been insimianated?
That's OK, but
Mountain a gorilla as a pastime's overrated
Been mandrilled
And you "ook" and you fook and you pump
And you jump in your tree and I understand
Librarian orang-utans are terribly opinionated
Ook, ook, ook

Why'd I get the feeling that I've been insimianated?
Don't you know
If "Monkey" is a verb, I think I've just been conjugated
Life's like this you
Take your ease
In the trees
With carte blanche
On your branch
To go "oh! oh! oh!"
I know, you're no
George Clooney, you're baboon-y and they ain't related
Ook, ook, ook

Great work, Phil. I laughed out loud at "If "Monkey" is a verb, I think I've just been conjugated" and the "swing both ways" and 'anaconda' lines were super as well.

I had a swinging good time reading this!!

More great puns than you can shake a schtick at! ... agree with all Red Ant's picks and would also throw five longish bananas at "Homo erectus", "gibbon take", and "mandrilled"!

Such an unusual play on words orang-ulated Cojugated Homo-erectus, 5's I look forward to seeing more of these unique phrases in parodies.
Phil Alexander - February 19, 2009 - Report this comment
:-) Thanks, guys.. for some reason it took me ages to finish this one, never quite happy with it. Then I thought up the "conjugated" line, and that kind of swung it, so to speak.

The one I can't claim, TJC, is "gibbon take", which is a straight theft from the Goodies ("Funky Gibbon" - but then, that one uses *all* the decent gibbon puns)

Stop Monkeying Around and make more great parodies like these! This was great too many great lines to mention such as "If "Monkey" is a verb, I think I've just been conjugated" and "You ain't as hairy as some of the other guys I've dated" and "Been mandrilled" so many great puns you could be Jeff Reuben in disguise!

interesting take on a pop iconic song makes it easier to hear on the rdio now but hard to explain to co-workers
Claude Prez - March 20, 2009 - Report this comment
I've read this before but didn't comment. Everyone else has mentioned all the best lines but you know how I feel about monkeys. Great stuff!

This brings to mind one my favorite Far Side cartoons of all time:

Very punny, Phil. I'm a fan, and the 'swing both ways' line stood out for me - March 25, 2009 - Report this comment
Only In It For The Monkey.

Great puns throughout, and the "conjugated" line is one of the best ever written. I might steal it some day. Quid pro quo. Thanks for taking my tasteless word and making it infinitely tasteless-er. That's talent, baby.

(SOTM) The pacing seemed to stumble in a few places, and I don't understand all the cracks about Tarzan being an ape (I swear he's human) but this parody was still pretty good. It just didn't 'swing' with me, so to speak.
Phil Alexander - March 30, 2009 - Report this comment
bob - well, he is known as "The Ape Man", and when Jane wakes up, she might not be 100% sure... know what I mean?

Spaff - you're too kind. And I mean that. Let me know what you drop the conjugated line into ;-)

Pensworth - Funnily enough, I knew exactly which Far Side cartoon you meant before I followed the link. Great minds think alike, and all that :-)

Glen - for all the macho in the Tarzan films, you never quite get the feeling that he's that way inclined, do you?

Claude - I read that comment earlier, but didn't comment. I know how you feel about monkeys? Compared to other roadkill... depends how you cook 'em, I suppose

Matthias - does this mean our secret's out? I mean, have you ever seen Jeff and me in the same room...

(SOTM) "mandrilled" and "gibbon take" and the "George Clooney - baboony" rhyme were my favourite leftfield gets here Phil, but the whole thing was wacky and inventive - 555

(SOTM) The monkey refs were fantastic, hilarious parody. . ."Swings both ways" that was one of many terrific puns, what kinda killed it was pacing gaffes, I had gotten lost in a number of places, still knowing you as a recording parodist, I'm sure you could make it work, and if you did this would be a hilarious recording.

SOTM...just hilarious from beginning to end, Phil...L-ing OL at the office...=) notch!

I agree with all of the great lines and puns already cited in the comments. This was over the top great !!!
Jeff Reuben - March 31, 2009 - Report this comment
(SOTM) All the comments about puns, seems like people are making a monkey out of a mole hill! Some great stuff in here. Right up my alley, a fun read!
