The Lyrics

His name was Henry, he was a primate
He hung around the jungle bar
Where he tried to be a star
Her name was Judy, she was a sweet thing
And when Henry married her
It created quite a stir
Among those jungle types
There was lots of hype
They had pineapples and mangos
And they all were ripe

At the Loco, Locobanana
The wildest spot south of Havana
At the Loco, Locobanana
Monkeys with passion were always in action
At the Loco--it was a zoo

His name was Bruno, he was from Texas
He had a firm solar plexus
He was one of Judy's ex's
When he saw Henry, he called him over
He said "you stole my true sweetheart
You monkey-lovin fart"
And then the mangos flew
Coconuts were smashed in two
The parrots and the toucans were chattering too

At the Loco, Locobanana
The wildest spot south of Havana
At the Loco, Locobanana
There was a fight

It's still the jungle, there still are primates
Who like to hang around the bar
And pretend that they are stars
And Henry still looks out for his Judy
You'll see them sitting side by side
They're pretty dignified
Now in their older age, they've put aside some rage
But that nasty ape named Bruno rattles in his cage

At the Loco, Locobanana
The wildest spot south of Havana
At the Loco, Locobanana
They're animals......
