lyrics

MONKEY DANCE

Way down in the jungle a long long time ago
the shaking moved down from the trees onto the jungle floor
a fireball fell from up above and turned into a blaze
as thunder rolled like distant drums and started up a craze

Doin the monkey dance
Doin the monkey dance
Doin the monkey dance
Doin the monkey dance

Primates stood around the fire and looked from face to face
toes tapped in the moonlight jungle fever raged
but even at the dawn of time the guys still had to wait
until the girls dropped from the trees and everyone went ape

Doin the monkey dance
Doin the monkey dance
Doin the monkey dance
Doin the monkey dance

Someone grabbed some sticks and bones and started up a band
the moon hung like a disco ball that flashed across the land
the earth shook from the stamping feet and everyone went wild
tryin to make the party last until the end of time

Doin the monkey dance
Doin the monkey dance
Doin the monkey dance
Doin the monkey dance

Earl Parker California

Songs are the thoughts, hopes, wishes and fears of dreamers, for music is the province of dreamers, a realm where anything can and often does become reality.
