Mano Negra – The Monkey lyrics

The Monkey
I said Yeah
Now three little monkeys sat on a coconut tree
Discussing things has they are said to be
Said one to the other, now listen you two
There is a certain rumour that can't be true
That man descended from our noble race
The funny idea is a big disgrace
No monkey ever deserted his wife
Nor her baby and ruin her life
I said yeah... Monkey speaks 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
Now if I build a fence around this tree
Starvation will cause you to steal from me
I said Yea... The monkey speaks his mind
Here is another thing a monkey wont do
Go out at night and get on a stew
Or use a gun a club or a knife
To take another monkey's life
Yes man descended the worthless bum
But my god brothers from us he did not come
Yeah... The monkey speaks his mind
