The Lyrics


It was forty years ago today
in a little clearing that-a-way
that me mum, she fin'lly cracked a smile
she'd been tryna squeeze me out a while
and then she introduced me to
this tree I've sat in all those years
I'm such a grumpy
old orangutan

I'm such a grumpy old orangutan
a dull and lonely so-and-so
such a grumpy old orangutan
I just sit on my arse, you know

such a grumpy, lonely
such a grumpy, lonely
such a grumpy old orangutan

It's horrible to be here
I wish that I wuz dead
It's such a boring life I lead
I watch Sigourney through the mist
and then I go to bed

I don't really want this life you know
really wish I'd learnt to play cello
or become proficient at mah jong
or abducted cuties, like King Kong

but meanwhile I'll just sit and frown
coz that's the only thing I know
I'm such a grumpy old oranguta-a-an

kill
me
please..

thanks alvin, don't mind a bit of monkeying around :-)

thanks Rick, thanks Kristof, but I thought you had a full house (boom boom)

compared to me he's a sprout too, Paul, although not as much a sprout as he is compared to you, I see - thanks

thanks AFW - at least Clint's baboon got up off his red arse and got a Hollywood agent

er, how did you know I was subconsciously unleashing the frustration of my inner demons, Luke? - I mean no I wasn't

Cool! I especially loved the hint on Sigourney Weaver on her role in "Gorillas of the Misty Mountains" - it is one of my movie favourites.

thanks LucidL LB - it's a treat to get some late comments in

thanks Susanna - and ditto - I imagine you'd like that movie :-)

I also appreciated this one. I think Clint is pro-magnum or something... this parody is a bit higher on the evolutionary pepper tree. 5's with a bullet
stuart mcarthur - September 15, 2005 - Report this comment
thanks Tim, and LOL on the pro-magnum Clint Eastwood! :-)
