The Lyrics

pox the monkey , alright?
pox the monkey, alright?

the prairie dogs have come
cover me , or it's dire
something's wrong, a new disease
skin gets bad, listen please
save me I'm uneased
monkey monkey monkey
don't you know you've got the pox from monkeys

dog the dog,
rat the rat
it came from apes
we all know that
there is one thing that they're sure of
prairie dogs gave us more
darling don't you monkey with the monkey
monkey monkey monkey
don't you know you've got to pox the monkey

science instructing,
your skin's erupting
can't treat it, but I guess we're learning

Pox! watch the monkey get hurt

cover up when you sleep,
and your mouth when you breathe
you bought bad pets, just this one time
thought prairie dogs were fine
cover me, darling please,
monkey monkey monkey
don't you know you've got to pox the monkey

too much at stake
your cells will mutate
the disease is breaking
pox! watch the monkey get hurt.. monkey

pox the monkey
pox the monkey
pox the monkey tonight

i also wrote a parody of this song and maybe I should have centered it around Beavis and Butt-Head (you know, Spank Your Monkey)
