The Lyrics

A chimpanzee escaped from the LA zoo on Monday. This parody is how it looked from the chimp's point of view. News source provided by the following link: http://www.nbc4columbus.com/news/2777768/detail.html
Gotta run, escape
Is so sweet,
Causin' this chaos is such fun,
I could just excrete.
Hey, hey, I'm a monkey,
My business is to monkey around,
I got tired of swinging
Now I'm loose on the zoo grounds.

I can go wherever I want to,
Wish I busted out my crew.
Cause we gots some monkey business,
Like terrorize this zoo.
Hey, hey, I'm a monkey,
My business is to monkey around,
I got tired of swinging,
Now I'm loose on the zoo grounds.

Why do they always pen me?
I just want to romp and play.
I'm off my reservation.
My handlers I won't obey.

Monkey shines I come to bear,
Better build a better holder,
Thinkin' they'll keep me there.

Hey, hey, I'm a monkey,
My business is to monkey around,
I got tired of swinging
Now I'm loose on the zoo grounds.

Instrumental break (Organ grinder music)

Hey, hey, I'm a monkey,
My business is to monkey around,
I got tired of swinging
Now I'm loose on the zoo grounds.

Why do they always pen me?
I just want to romp and play.
I'm off my reservation.
My handlers I won't obey.

Hey, hey, I'm a monkey,
My keepers comin' shoot me down,
Aimin' that gun so steady,
Why is everything goin' round?

Hey, hey, I'm a monkey,
Hey, hey, I'm a monkey,

Well, I hope the monkey did as well as a cow that recently escaped from a slaughter house here in Michigan. It literally ran all around downtown Detroit for 8 hours, was on TV, the whole 9 yards.The public at large put on a big stink that if any animal that could survive in Detroit all alone for 7 hours, should deserve to live. Finally some farm family came foward and said they would adopt the animal. What a lucky break for old Elsie, eh? the animal was hours from being made into hamburger, etc. Anyway, cute parody. eye1

I liked the "I'm off my reservation" line. Good job, Guy.

JD - Was that Tootie or Muldune? Thanks everyone for your comments and votes.

Laurence - I'll be on the lookout for your Bush parody. Did you notice the ad for "dimpled chad" parody site at the top right? Dubya looks a lot like the subject of this song in that pic. LOL.
