The Lyrics

After a quarter century friendship with parody contributor, Rick Duncan, who gave me a love for the artform, I'm dusting off my quip-tipped quill. I really hope Rick will make the recordings of his parodies available.
The best pets in life are free, but they don't make it like a chimpanzee,
I want a monkey . . . That's what I want . . . That's what I wa-a-ant, oh yeah.
I want a monk.

And your bird can sing sing sing,
But simians can really swing.
I want a monkey . . . That's what I want . . . Don't want a skunk, oh no.
I want a monk.

Your kitty can watch TV,
But they've got monkeys runnin' NBC.
I want a monkey . . . That's what I want . . . Give me a bu-u-unch, yeah.
I want a monk.

Monkeys can't do everything, it's true.
But you can't train dogs to tie your shoes.
Give me a monkey . . . That's what I want . . . Just call me Bwa-a-ana, yeah.
Make mine a monk.

I want a minkey . . . a houseload of minkeys.
Inspector Clouseau . . . I want some mo'.
They make me howl . . . Give me a barrel.
I'll name them Mickey, Mike, Peter, Davy.
I want some mo-o-o-onkeys, yeah.
I want some monks.

I'd think this was funny If I didn't know ya. 5's. The best way to catch up is to check "recent comments' on the left, but you'll get it. Mari is on the list also, she has 10 on here. I am still figuring how to post MP3's. Any ideas, let me know.
