The Lyrics

You and I and a little boy too
Buy a bag of balloons with the money we got
Give them to baboons in the cage
One by one they went up
Back at home, the news anchor says
Just got a note, Baboons out there
Flying in the summer sky
99 Fat Baboons go by

99 Fat Baboons
Flying in the summer sky
Panic bells, all be alert
these baboons are here from the sky
the tranquilizers are out all night
kids open up their eager eyes
looking up into the sky
99 fat baboons go by

99 nightmare street
99 zoo workers meet
to worry worry better scurry
call boss he'll get mad in a hurry
what did this happen for
This is it guys, this is bad
The boss is on the other line
as 99 fat baboons go by

99 workers in the air
ride super-old-school helicopters
everyones in for big trouble
everyone is really screwed
with orders to identify
will you please clarify
what is in the summer sky
99 fat baboons go by

99 dreams i've had
why have i lost all my baboons
its all over and i've lost my zoo
in this cage was the monkies
if i could find some evidence
just to prove of their existence
and here i find baby a baboon
i take it and hope to keep my zoo
