The Lyrics

ATTENTION, EVERYONE! Since The Harambe Gorilla Was Dead Since 2 Years Ago From The Cincinnati Zoo, The Harambe Meme Was One Of The 2016 Memes. Come On And Listen To The Words, Lyrics, And The Music Because This Song Is For Harambe And It Was Requested By Brodie.
[Verse 1: Biff]
HARAMBE!!!!
Harambe Was A Western Gorilla Born In The Gladys Zoo,
He Was Born In Brownsville, Texas, On May 27th Too.
Harambe, Working For Freedom, Was Listening To The CD,
That Was Written By A Singer Rita Marley.

[Chorus: Biff]
Poor Old Harambe, Well, He Never Got Here Late,
Poor Old Harambe, He's Dead On May 28th.
Is It Any Bother That He Always Ate Some Grapes,
Harambe, That Poor Old Little Ape.

[Verse 2: Biff]
He Was An Old Gorilla That Was Searching All Around,
But There Was A Child In The Water Falling All The Way Down,
HARAMBE!!! Oh!
Harambe, That Gorilla, Was Hungry As He Can Be,
He Had To Search For Bananas On A Tree.

[Chorus: Biff]
Poor Old Harambe, Well, He Never Got Here Late,
Poor Old Harambe, He's Dead On May 28th.
Is It Any Bother That He Always Ate Some Grapes,
Harambe, That Poor Old Little Ape.

[Verse 3: Biff]
And Then That Video Was Harambe Holding A 3 Year Old Boy,
He Tried To Save The Boy's Old Life, But Ol' Harambe Feared,
HARAMBE!!! No-ho! Oh!
Harambe Was Dead Now Cause A Zoo Worker Shot Him,
This Video Was Shown To People Now And Then.

[Outro: Biff]
Poor Old Harambe, Well, He Never Got Here Late,
Poor Old Harambe, He's Dead On May 28th.

(Fades Out)
The Harambe Incident Was Recorded And Uploaded To YouTube, Where It Went Viral. Harambe Had Been Dead After His Birthday 2 Years Ago. It Was Now Known As A 2016 Internet Meme Which Is Now Dead.

I liked it, never heard this story before. If you like Kaw-Liga, I would immodestly point you towards my 2 explorations of the tune-- http://www.amiright.com/parody/80s/theresidents7.shtml and http://www.amiright.com/parody/misc/hankwilliams58.shtml :)
