The Lyrics

(my second verse is NOT the same as the first!)
I'm Henry the ape I am
Henry the ape, I am I am
I don't eat bananas cause they're a bore
I like drinkin at the jungle bar
And I don't wanna meet any Henry's
I wanna meet a Judy or an Ann
I'm a big ole ape, I'm Henry
Henry the ape I am

(a year later)

I'm Henry the 8th I am
Henry the 8th ape, I am
I got married to Judy from the bar
She'd married 7 big apes before
And every one was a Henry
She never met a Harry or a Dan
I'm her 8th old ape, I'm Henry
Henry the 8th I am I am
Henry the 8th I am
