The Lyrics

Dude doesn't like bananas. And that's all anyone wants to give him...
So hungry
Want some chow

Food i-is what I'm yearnin'
So starvin', I'll eat anythin'
Well, there is one kind of food, man
That I just can't stand the slightest bit
It always makes me sick, yes

Damn, of all the foods that you could offer (ooh-ooh-ooh)
The same one each ti-ime, cut it out (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Not hard for menus to be altered (ooh-ooh-ooh)
I've made it clear I don't want this now, write this down

I don't want bananas
They're just gross to me, dude
I don't want bananas
Taste and texture's all askew

Ev'ry time I complain of hunger (you, you, you)
You give bananas to me, dude
I wish sometimes you would offer me
Grapes or pears, some other fruit
Why won't you?

I don't want bananas
They're ugly tubes of goo
I don't want bananas, oh yeah
So I'm throwin' them at you
So sick of these bananas

Hate bananas
Hate bananas
Hate bananas
Hate bananas

Now you may think I'm off my rocker (ooh-ooh-ooh)
"But "eat bananas" is just what you do (what you do) (ooh-ooh-ooh)
Well, that and throwin' your dung" (ooh-ooh-ooh)
And I'll throw that dung fair square at you
I'm not happy, dude

I don't want bananas
I'll just fling them at you
I don't want bananas
That's stereotypin', dude
I don't want bananas, they're just so mushy
Peels are a hazard, too, don't want that, do you?
I don't want bananas, buddy
I'm a picky monkey, true (woo, woo)
Yeah, yeah

Who says monkeys don't have standards?

And then John was a monkey.

Most monkeys eat almost anything like leaves, grass, fruit, nuts, birds, frogs, seeds, insects, eggs, and other small animals. Some monkeys even fish for crabs! They like to eat very ripe fruit and don't like to eat the outside of it, just the inside. Monkeys aren't Vegans! Monkey needs to quit fruit and kill a small animal! 555!
