Loading...

yeah, the monkey speaks his mind

now, three monkey sittin’ in a coconut tree
discussin’ things as they all say it to be
said one to the other, now, listen you two
there’s a certain rumor that can’t be true

that man descended from our n-ble race
the very idea is a big disgrace
no monkey ever deserted his wife
starve a baby [incomprehensible]

yeah, the monkey speaks his mind

ain’t you never know a mother monk
to leave her babes with others to bonk
p-ss ’em on from one to another
’til they scarcely knew who was their mother

yeah, the monkey speaks his mind

and another thing you never see
i monkey build a fence around the coconut tree
and let another coconuts go to waste
forbidden all the other monkeys to come and taste

what if i put up fence around this tree
starvation would force you to steal from me

yeah, the monkey speaks his mind

here’s another thing a monkey won’t do
go out at night and get on a [incomprehensible]
use a gun, a club or knife
to take another monkey’s life

yeah, man descended [incomprehensible]
but brothers from us, he did not come

yeah, the monkey speaks his mind
