The Lyrics

Went to the zoo today
Had one too many beers beforehand
At the gorilla pen
Jumped up and down and waved both my hands

Don't call me homo sapiens
I really didn't know what I was doin'-a
Oh, daaaamn!
Gorilla's got me now!
And there's no monkey trainer in sight!
Gorilla's got me!
Gorilla's got me!
Gorilla's got me!

Why won't he set me free?
He's draggin' me by both feet inside!
He's rippin' off my trou's
I hope he doesn't make me his bride!

He's really scared me shitless
He's showin' me off to both of his children-a
They've really got me now!
And Junior's takin' me for a ride!

Gorilla's got me!
Gorilla's got me!
Gorilla's got me!

(Howling accompanied by guitar solo)

Someone explain to me
Why won't zookeepers come when I call?
Just 'cause my back is hairy
Schoolchildren don't seem to care at all!

Gorilla's got me moanin'
This is the worst day that I could imagine-a
Oh, yeah?
You think you've had it worse?
They're playing hackysack with my nads!

Gorilla's got me!
Gorilla's got me!
Gorilla's got me!

I can see the Van Halen video for this. Diamond Dave howling in pain, and all the adjacent cages filled with bikini babes (for no apparent reason).

Well I'd love to perform this too. It seems like a simple song, but try singing it while you play the guitar or bass. (same part) It's tricky.

Hey K1chyd, you wondered what happened to Bubbles. Check this out, I think Bob Gomez may have seen him, recently. ;) (Ok, wrong species, but still....)

Yeah, Diamond Dave would surely "Jump" in that video!

Give Melhi and Apricot's Random Thread credit for getting me here. I wasn't disappointed, this was hilarious!
