The Lyrics

Big, big and strong,
he has cowed this island throng.
King of this remote land.
Brings a lassie demand.
Big, big and strong.
But he’s crippled by gas that’s strong.
They take him in a ship to New York,
where folks can laugh and jeer,
the King that’s been wronged.

[angry simian sounds]

Big, big and strong,
Chases girl
till she’s found.
King has love interspecies.
King is pronged.
He goes nimbly up building long.
“So sorry,” says law that had enough;
he falls from there to here.
Dead thing is King Kong.
