Funky monkey rockabye baby on the tree tops
where the rain drops fluky like the tail of a whale,
tales from monkeys without tails
Cranky lanky he's a junkie, smoking dope until he chokes,
risky frisky
and drinkin whiskey dying young is just another hoax
Funky Monkey (kumain ng saging)
Funky Monkey (sumabit sa baging)
Fun-ky Mon-key!
Sweet riffs and and funky licks,
kanabiz and a bag of tricks
Like a fuel injected pump,
these monkeys make me wanna jump
Funky monkey rockabye baby
on the tree trops where the rain drops
Fluky like the tail of a whale,
tales from monkey's without tails
Funky monkey rockabye baby
on the treetops where the raindrops
keep fallin on my head & I said to myself,
"Have I read the books on the shelf?"
'cause this is how we do it, real funky,
I figured if you would really wanna
know then I'm a show you how it's done gee whiz,
this is the style
run the 1/4 mile under a minute I get in it,
like the Stylistics
I'm on the case of Jimi Hendrix,
1966, my cheeks are full of lipstick
Wipe it off with a soft tissue paper I wanna be great,
no rephrase that
I wanna be greater! Like the tail of the whale,
tales from monkeys w/out tails
Funky monkey, a funky junkie,
risky frisky and drinkin whiskey keep
smokin on dope until he chokes,
because dyin young is just another hoax
another scam, act like a ham,
caught stealin a cheat on the final exam
the tricks of the trade is to crank funky licks,
sweet riffs and a bag of tricks
funky junkie with a bandana,
funky monkey eat a banana (funky ng ina mo!)
