The Lyrics

For a band called The Monkees I'm surprised that they didn't have many chimp related tunes...
Grab your guns
We will reign supreme
We are the hairiest rebels
Well-Armed Chimpanzees

Hey, Hey! We're the Monkeys!
And while in war won't monkey around
It's not just poop we're flinging
To bring all the humans down

Were once locked up in your damn zoo
Force-fed some rotten fruit
Plucked right from the rainforest
Because you think we're cute

Hey, Hey! We're the Monkeys!
Watch as banana junkies all pound
While to the trees we're clinging
Can't take tamarins down!

Think we're violent and smelly
You say we're going ape
Gibbons filled with frustration
For being trapped in a cage


Grooming ticks... Out of our hair...
When the rubble all smolders
We'll wave our arms and glare

Hey, Hey! We're the Monkeys!
Orangutans are chunky and round
And from the trees they're swinging
Your Ape-Lords have all been crowned

("War Cry")

Hey, Hey! We're the Monkeys!
Gorillas think we're hunky right now!
As our bullets keep pinging
Mandrills will take over town

There's baboons in a frenzy
They're flashing their butts in rage
Marmosets take formation!
It's the Planet of the Apes

Hey, Hey! We're the Monkeys!
Hey, Hey! We're the Monkeys!

Apparently the "intelligent design" faction dislikedthis parody. It is a fricking'movie tribute, dorks. 555

(Artistry) I like the tribute to a classic franchise. I know it shouldn't bother me, but it does. They would never call themselves "monkeys". Yeah it's a perfect title switch and the spoof was good, but that inaccuracy really got at me, to no fault of you, Matty. It's an issue that's conpletely in me. Still a good tribute sir!

(Artistry) Fantastic parody, even if having the same title as the original doesn't quite work in the new context. 555!

They each have over 300 confirmed kills and participated in a gorilla warfare.
