The Lyrics

If you don't get the Bloodhound Gang reference go and watch "The Bad Touch" music video. Not sure what it is with musicians and wanting to dress up as monkeys. If you don't know where I got the idea behind this song go and check out the music video and it will tell you all you need to know.
Today I think I’ll go join the Bloodhound Gang
When I go and put on this mask
Being human just kind of blows
So I’ll go join the Bonobos
So I’ll grow long hair and go join the Bloodhound Gang

Find a tree to climb up
Then swing from a branch
With this costume on, My big butt I will scratch
Then dig for termites using a plant

I’ll be walking while I’m slouched
When I go become a monkey
Pluck off all your fleas cause I think they taste yummy
And with my tail I do things you can’t

I want bananas
Bananas in my hand

Today I think I’ll go join the Gorillaz
Once I go slip on this fake head
Watch out cause my poop I will throw
And you might think that’s kinda gross
And I’ll make my cage smeared when I join the Gorillaz

Tree trunks I’ll crawl
King Kong stands tall

In the lab test make-up this is monkey business
Sprout a tail that curls, Chill in jungle forests
Howler monkeys scream out and chomp grapes
(“Oh my god! I’m an ape!”)

I’ll make grunting sounds while I’m leaping tree to tree
I’ll form a big band* with gorillas and me
Then Donkey Kong will be my Pri-Mate

I want bananas
Bananas in my hand

Today I’m going to make fun of Jane Goodall
Monkeying around with some chimps
Like King Louie I’ll own the throne
And crush some insects with a stone
Shoot that mad ape glare and make fun of Jane Goodall

Yeah, I’ll swing by just to groom your hair
And wave my hands up in the air
Ooo, Ooo, Ooo, Ooo, Ooo, Ooo, Ooo, Ooo
I’ll be primped in this monkey suit
And suck down banana juice
Ooo, Ooo, Ooo, Ooo, Ooo, Ooo, Ooo, Ooo

Today I’ll go and have fun with a tire swing
In the zoo I’ll show you my ass
Have monkey sex right where it’s shown
Some kids will gawk and parents groan
Not insane, I swear, I’ll play on a tire swing

On rocks I’ll sprawl
In this furred shawl
I’ll have a ball!
* A group of gorillas is called a band.
