The Lyrics

Monkey swain, snarling monkey swain;
He chased her and wrecked an el train.
Simian show filled to balcony.
Couldn't find a seat
For this treat.
He looked beat
From defeat.

Monkey swain, darling monkey swain,
Carried across the bounding main,
That's the sea. Flashback: on ship she
Tries to learn her lines,
Camera winds,
Then she finds

Monkey swain, snarling monkey swain;
His captivity brings him pain,
Then a fall from a building tall
After a caress
Of her dress
And her chest.
Was that all?

Monkey swain, darling monkey swain,
He was done in by an airplane.
Long he's gone;
He fell a long ways.
On the street he lays
And decays;
No bouquets;
Move--who pays?

Monkey's game-y post-plane-slain. Funk-breathe pain.
