The Lyrics

The classic flick, King Kong, is so great
Reflects good morals, and puts smiles on our face
As honest as a young child sayin' pray'rs
A tale that shares, as old as time and space
On the roof, up high, the beast is free
It's just the world below, society..
That frustrates him so..

He's way too big for the world, he must be beat
They deploy all their forces to defeat, (Ape on the roof)
Emotions high from the gathering crowds
They're making lots of noise down in the street, (Ape on the roof)
Empire State, the highest place to go
Hand crushing planes they're falling down below
A big ape on the roof, (Ape on the roof)

(brief Instrumental)

Skyline, New York, Kong fights defiantly
Makes fascinating fare for you and me

On edges of our seats..

Bi-wing planes circle, shooting him down
That is their plan, but it's not trouble proof, (Ape on the roof)
Protects his love by setting her down..
Does what he has to do,
Ape on the roof, (Ape on the roof)
Ape on the roo-oo-oof, (Ape on the roof)
He's growing weaker, (Ape on the roof)
Down he comes falling, (Ape on the roof)


Beauty's what killed the beast,
(Ape on the roof)

And just where in the hell was his brother "Donkey" when he needed him the most? That brother of his was always such a pure unalterated ass. You should get the Kongressional Medal of On Her for this one. Good job here Sir Farce. High 5s for ya.
