The Lyrics

The inspiration for this comes from a similarly weird musical tribute to King Kong once performed by Garrett Morris on the old "Saturday Night Live". I wasn't planning to submit this one, but I changed my mind because of Peter Jackson's announced plans to direct an all-new version of the film.
Bonzo is not here today
Mighty Joe Young lost his way
Magilla won't fit in my bed
Because their best friend is now dead

Please go King King, please won't you go dear King Kong
Please go King Kong
For we all need some sleep

And it's really time to go
No more deals with RKO
All your antics have now ceased
It was Beauty killed The Beast

Made some flicks in Tokyo
And the remake was so-so
The critics killed you today
I think they just miss old Fay Wray

Go King Kong, Go King Kong, Go King Kong (ad nauseum)

First comment? Obviously not many people know the original. Great job, Aggro. I especially like the second verse - "It was beauty killed the beast" couldn't possibly fit any better.

(ABC) Creative idea for a parody, I really need to get a Beatles album one of these days.

I know the original song. This would be a good counterpart to the I did about Mighty Joe Young. We should put these in "A Roomful of Monkeys"

(ABC) Delightful, Agri! And on a fairly obscure Beatles track as well...555

(O) - wow, I never knew Magilla and King Kong used to hang out - nice work, Agri!

(ABC) For some unknown reason, "No more deals with RKO" is oddly funny ... perhaps because in The Rocky Horror Picture Show, Doctor Frank-'n-Furter climbs the RKO tower to try to escape Riff-Raff's death-ray!

Thanks for all the props, guys! I used to think this one wasn't all that good, but you proved me wrong. :)
