The Lyrics

You might go "ape" over this one! or just plain "bananas" LOL!! :-D YouTube Link to Big Time by Peter Gabriel: - I wrote this with the points of view of both characters King Kong and Carl Denham. and based it on both the 1933 and 2005 versions of the film.
King Kong!

I’ve got my fame, I am a star, yeah!
They’ve got to make a film, yeah!
Standing larger than life
I’m gonna watch them filming
Hey, hey, hey, hey.…

The place where I come from is Skull Island
Creatures are big, nothing is small
But not me, I’m bigger than them,
King of the beasts

They’ll be searching my land to capture me and take me out
They knocked me out, they took me off
To the city, To New York City
I’ll make a big noise smashing trains like toys, so many cars I will crush
And I will fight with a big snake, and with a Tyrannosaur

King Kong, I’m going ape I’m breaking it,
King Kong, Fay Wray!
King Kong, I’m going steal the show, yeah, King Kong
King Kong, Eighth Wonder of the World
King Kong, They’re gonna hear me roaring, King Kong
Ho ohh ohh, oh oh, ho ohh ohh, oh ohhh

My movies have all the big names
and I meet them with a big hand shake
Tell them all how my trip was an adventure
and they will be amazed

When I show them the giant ape that we caught
I’ll have him chained and inside a cage
with a fake Ann not the one he loves a lot
and he will climb up the Empire State Building
and go all the way to the top

King Kong, He’s going ape He’s breaking it, King Kong, Huh!
King Kong, He’s going steal the show, yeah, King Kong
King Kong, Standing larger than life
King Kong, It was beauty killed the beast, King Kong

King Kong, my car has gotten destroyed
King Kong, the houses have been destroyed
King Kong, my stage has gotten destroyed
King Kong, and the seeeeaaats
King Kong, the buildings have been destroyed
King Kong, and my camera
King Kong, I have lost my career
King Kong, and that shape falling,
King, King, King, King, King, King, King, King, King, King, King, King, King, King, Kong,

[Big crash sound]

The End!
Don't make Kong mad, or me as mad as him, give me some "nice" comments/votes! :-)

Great job- 555!!! Sorry that someone got here first and 1-bombed you. As you can see, the rest of us all gave you 5s :-D

A classic about a classic. Some ape bombed you; oh well--goes with the territory.

Thanks To Everybody!!! :-) and if you really read close enough, you will see, and even I noticed it, that I did in fact use some things from the 70's version of the film. ;-)

Great job. The 1933 version is tied with "Shane" as my all-time favorite movie.

The one thing that bothers me with all the three KK movies is that we never get to see any equivivalent sized bananas - so what did he live and feed on? Yeah I know, my mind is weird like that...

Nice job, I actually haven't seen the original KK movie and fell asleep during the newest one. I recommend watching this video... - nice work!

(SOTM) King Kong sized laughs for a King Kong sized parody! Great job.

I can't wait for Halloween to get here because every year I watch at least 31 movies (one per day during the month) and King Kong is on that list. The 30s one not the Jack Black one.

25 votes, wow! I like the going ape line. Well done to one of my favorite tunes from the past.

(SOTM) Never seen any of the movies, though that's not a detriment to your parody, I've picked up enough of the basic plot to King Kong through pop culture to understand what was going on. Great parody here, 555 bananas!
