The Monkey - Dave Bartholomew/Kay Starr

Yeah the monkey speaks his mind


Now three monkeys sat in a coconut tree


Discussing things as they are said to be


Said one to other now listen you two


There's a certain rumour that can't be true


That man descended from our noble race


Why the very idea is a big disgrace


No monkey ever deserted his wife


Starved her baby and ruined her life

Yeah the monkey speaks his mind


And you've never known a mother monk


To leave the babies with others to bunk


And passed them on from one to another


Till they scarcely knew who was their mother

Yeah the monkey speak his mind


And another thing you will never see


A monkey build a fence around a coconut tree


And let all the coconuts go to waste


Forbidding all other monkeys to come and taste

Why if I put a fence around this tree


Starvation would force you to steal from me


Yeah the monkey speaks his mind


Here's another thing a monkey won't do


Go out on a night and get all in a stew


Or use a gun or a club or a knife


To take another monkey's life


Yes man descended the worthless bum


But brothers from us he did not come


Yea the monkey speaks his mind
