The Lyrics

pitchin' my tent stake
down by a small lake
hope those gorillas do not recoil
campin' since last spring
watchin' the apes swing
but their tempers' beginnin' to boil

chased every day i spend in my gorillaville
hopin' that i ain't taken apart
though people claim
that i'm a woman, insane
i will show...that these apes are smart

i think they reason
watched them all season
the traits that they show
all suggest that they do
a real sense of duty
attraction to beauty
though, its not clear...i'm pickin' up clues

chased every day i spend in my gorillaville
hopin' that i ain't taken apart
though people claim
that i'm a woman, insane
i will show...that these apes are smart

i watched a group stop
out on the outcrop
had a meal
they made themselves at home
twas a mix of both genders
love started so tender
it soon got obnoxious
i had to move on

chased every day i spend in my gorillaville
hopin' that i ain't taken apart
though people claim
that i'm a woman, insane
i will show...that these apes are smart

yes, and though people claim
i am a woman, insane
i know...that these apes are smart

alvin - also restored my vote from 07/28. Gee, nobody said anything about my "Gorillas that you missed" comment. Well. maybe it was too obscure, there was a lot going on here that day, anyway, and maybe it wasn't all THAT clever or funny (sniffle)...
