The Lyrics

While this one is obviously inspired by Claude's alter ego, it also owes allegiance to Bob Newhart's "An infinite number of monkeys" monologue, in which he supposes that you'd need to have people to check the work, just to see if the monkeys had produced one of the complete works of Shakespeare...
Infinite numbers of baboons
Will write all books, poems and tunes
Everything that Shake-
Spear wrote and more

But nearly all of what they'll type
Will be unmitigated tripe
It's junk! Debris!
It's very clear to me

That a...
Room full of monkeys ain't enough to get it done
Enough to get it done
Enough to get it done
No, a room full of monkeys spend their days just having fun
In the most annoying way

You know, I thought my chimpanzee
Would write up something good for me
While typing with his
Fingers, tail and toes

But since he was introduced
This is the best that he's produced:
"The lady doth
Protest too mmmnunnggth"

For a...
Room full of monkeys typing every day and night
Every day and night
Every day and night
Then that room full of monkeys will still only turn out shite
In the most annoying way
...Bob Newhart's punchline: "Hey, I think this is famous or something: 'To be, or not to be, that is the gzornenplat...'"

Bob Newhart is the Pink Floyd of comedians: Incredibly overrated, with fans who are eternally blind to this fact, yet they keep giving him shows. But Suzanne Pleshette still looks good.

The movie with that song in it was made in the 60's!!!

YOU try composing with these clowns flinging dung at you every five seconds....(Great idea; great execution) And Hey! How come the Anal Jerk didn't point out that chimpanzees don't have tails? (heh heh)

Must admit, I thought it predated the 60s... but imdb says '64 so I reckon you're right...

Michael: Bob Newhart's best (again, rather like Pink Floyd I guess) rates with the best comedy ever written - my ancient bit of vinyl "Best of Bob Newhart" is hilarous start to finish.

Claude: Did I say *which*, er "tail" the chimp was using? After all, I didn't want it to end up on Whatfreaks ;-)
