The Lyrics

This parody in no way condones the enslaving on Africa's indigenous creatures, nor does it endorse fly-by shootings of large gorillas without trial by jury of said gorilla's peers.
Look what they've done to King Kong, Ma.
Look what they've done to my Kong.
They put him on a Vaudeville stage,
They say he's quite the rage, Ma.
Look what they've done to my Kong.

The tabloids say I'm his girl, Ma.
All of New York's in a whirl.
The newsies caught us holding hands,
So I sez, "We're just friends", Ma.
We made The News Of The World.

Oh, I've got Kong-on-the-brain, Ma.
Life with the King's so insane..
Swung an elevated train around,
And turned it upside down, Ma.
Kong keeps me so entertained.

Ils ont chang?ma King Kong Ma.
Ils ont chang?ma King Kong.
I don't talk French, but what the hell,
And Kong don't kiss and tell, Ma.
Ils ont chang?ma King Kong.

They're flying planes at King Kong, Ma.
Climbin' this skyscraper's wrong.
We only came here to see the view,
'Cause he's nervous at the zoo, Ma.
I guess it's curtains for Kong..

Some flyboy shot King Kong's abs, Ma.
He's raining down on the cabs,
I see a crowd start circling 'round,
A Kong-shaped crater now, Ma.
He went out "big" - That's my Kong.

Grunt-grunt-grunt-grunt...grunt-grunt-grunt, Ma!
Grunt-grunt-grunt-grunt...grunt-grunt-grunt, Snort!

Kong was the only guy I could do half right,
But the law said it was wrong, oh Mama.
Look what they've done to my Kong!

Really funny, Dave. I like the abs/cabs rhyme. I think you have a magilla of a hit here.

But there's one thing 'bout this Kong, Ma
He's got a King-size big dong, Ma
He'll use that schlong
Just like a prong
To un-snap my D-cup bra
Kong's dong's so strong and so long!

555 inches and 555 tons

Thanks for the comments guys - so good to be hearing from you. I never bought the movie ending. Sure, Faye Wray screamed her way through half the picture, but in the end she leaves us with a knowing look in her eye and a whistful sigh. "T'was beauty killed the beast?" No - dumb ape climbs only building in NYC tall enough for the airplanes to get him. So, the Chrysler Building wasn't tall enough for ya, ya big monkey? Rumor has it he's actually buried under the ice at the skating rink in Rockefeller Center. They say that during record-breaking heatwaves... when the ice gets really thin...well, you know.
