Testo della canzone That Monkey Tune 25 Mar 1911 di Irving Berlin
Album: Miscellaneous
1st verse:]
Down in a sunny jungle town
Where the monkeys run around
Lived a crazy little monkey who loved to sing
A chimpanzee in a cocoanutty tree
Heard his nutty melody, she
Fell in love with his singing
From the branches a-clinging
She’d pitch her voice in a monkey key
And yell with all her might

Sing that monkey tune
You monkey loon
Don’t dare to stop, hurry up, hurry up
I want to hear that strain so queer
Because I’m crazy about that monkey tune

[2nd verse:]
She kept a-shouting from the tree
For his nutty melody
Till the crazy little monkey looked up and said
I want to spoon ‘neath the monkey honey moon
To the nutty wedding tune, soon
Mister and Missus Monkey
Pitched their voices in one key
And now they can’t get a wink of sleep
The baby yells all night
