I don't like monkeys

Description
Pretty straightforward. My Missus doesn't like monkeys.
Please note no monkeys were harmed in the making of this song.
Any resemblance to a song by the Boomtown Rats is purely co-incidental

Lyrics
The simian chimp inside her mind
gets switched to overload
And she doesn’t want to see
David Attenborough as he travels around the globe

And David doesn’t understand it
He thinks that apes are cool
And she can see no reason
cos there are no reasons
What reasons do you need you fool

Tell me why ; I don’t like monkeys
Tell me why ; I don’t like monkeys
Tell me why ; I don’t like monkeys
I want to shoo them out of town

Their chromosomes are quite close to home
but then so’s the humble worm
and she doesn’t want to see
any chimpanzees
they make her stomach turn

She doesn’t like their hairy bodies
and the way they scratch their butts

and when the apes of Gibraltar
commit manslaughter
just fighting for a bag of nuts

Tell me why ; I don’t like monkeys
Tell me why ; I don’t like monkeys
Tell me why ; I don’t like monkeys
I want to shoo them out of town

Well, she doesn’t mind eagles
and camels and beetles
and lizards and butterflies
But the sight of a gorilla
really doesn’t thrill her
and it makes her want to cry

And david doesn’t understand it
and he’s a very clever man
But I’m insistent
that’s she not consistent
cos she likes Orangutans

vocals
No, my missus has got a better voice than that.
It's just a vocal preset in GB that turns a mans voice to a womans ( supposedly).
I find it slightly disquieting :-)
Anyway, glad you liked it and thanks for dropping in
cheers

The picture was ..ahem 'borrowed' from google images. I think I put 'fighting monkeys' in the search.
Anyway, glad you liked it and thanks for your comments

Can U pls pass the banana chips?
This rewrite is dee-lish! Simian chimp . silicon chip ... what were you THINKING? That sorta-rasta backbeat is great, too, kind of how the Clash might have done it. You know, we humans have it coming to us, being on the top of the food chain for so long. Would monkeys be so bad? They had a whole planet once in the future, you know, they did okay for themselves. (Not so much for the humans.)

simian chimp
I think that was one of the first lines that came to me..and the rest just followed.
Not sure how the music came into being...I tried to turn the original song on it's side...then it fell over and then got hung upside down :-)
thanks for dropping in and glad you liked it

i don't like monkeys
ok...first of all...how can a chimp be anything other than simian? did you see that episode of the simpsons where they make a musical production of the planet of the apes. there's this line; I hate every ape I see, from chimpan-A to chimpan-Z.
anyway, back to this....you should have been a kids presenter. nuff said.

well....
No I didn't see the Simpsons episode but that's a great line.
I was thinking I'd get pulled up for calling apes monkeys but thankfully no-one's been that picky....yet
:-)
kids presenter? The BBC have got a restraining order on me after the incident with the Blue Peter tortiose.
Anyway, thanks for dropping in and hope you liked it in some way

Copyright? What?
This is a parody, copyright is ok.
And I'm not consistent neither: orangutans are cool.

very attractive music
This is really super. Grabs you straight from the off.Well written and well performed. I just love the chorus. This is how pop music used to be in the days when the genre used to bring you up. A sure fire fave. Good fun, Zappa would have loved it.
