The Lyrics

A mandrill is a kind of monkey. See The Lion King for an example of a mandrill (Rafiki, he know the way!). Normally, everything's better with monkeys, but not for this poor sod...
I'm a hard explorer
Nothing ever stops me searching
Might be looking for some more herds
Of rare creatures I'm researching

But I did something wrong here
It would help if I knew what
There's a crapload of monkeys in here!
I've got to bite through the pain
And run, like, a lot!

Cuz I pissed off some mandrills
I got them mad, how I don't know, okay?
Since I pissed off some mandrills
I've got to run away!

I run into and ancient temple
Mankind has never ever seen
Think I've lost those crazy mandrills
I'll take a squiz around this scene

Undiscovered ruins
I soon lost track of time
Explorers do that, 'kay
Who should show up? The mandrills!
They try to eat off my face

I got ravaged by mandrills
In a not-sexy, painful kind of way
I'm a target for mandrills
Usually at my face!

Being smothered by mandrills
Never guessed they'd take the finger that way
There are too many mandrills
So there is no escape

From the biting
There is just no escape
From the scratching
And the bruising
And the bleeding
There's no escape
There's no bloody escape

Ow, ow, that's stinging
Mandrills, go away!
Just piss off, okay?
I apologise for the overuse of the word 'mandrills'. If it gets on your nerves, feel free to replace each instance of 'mandrills' with 'monkeys'. It ruins the title-sub-rhyme, but it's a more satisfying word. Look, monkeys!

This was pretty good. Thanks for reminding me of a great OS!

Yeah, Rafiki is one of my fave characters of The Lion King. It does not matter whether or not you overuse "mandrills" too often because that's what the song is about. I have heard of a mandrill before. Saw those at the zoo a long time ago. This must have been a savage experience you had to go through. Reminds me of Tomb Raider where Lara Croft gets attacked by wild creatures, god forbid she doesn't encounter mandrills. Anyways, I enjoyed your every moment of your song, parody conqueror. 5's.

(Artistry) Good pacing, funny juxtaposition between the music and subject matter.

(Artistry) Wacky idea, but...geez, I don't know if it was the slow solemnity of the song or your writing here, it just didn't make me laugh one bit.

Boring original song, and that kinda took away from your parody, because the OS was so damn boring. It was a good idea, and done to a better OS would have blown us all out of the water.

(Artistry) It is a boring original song, but Three Dog Night is a boring original group, I perseonally thought this was very funny though--and boring original songs deserve to be parody targets.
