The moon is bright above
Oh what a night for love
And as I hold you near
I whisper in your ear
I go ape everytime I see you smile
I'm a ding dong gorilla and I'll carry you cave man style
I'm gonna bump you on the head and love you all the while
Well, I'm a monkey's uncle who's a cousin to a chimpanzee
Like I was reelin' and a-rockin' and a-swinging from a coconut tree
Oh honey can't you see you bring out the monkey business in me
Chorus
Oh, ranga tanga ring ting tong I'm related to old king kong
Honey won't you say you're mine
With a honky tonky monkey shine
When you hold my hand I'm a pre-historic man,
I go ape !!!
Like a barrel on monkeys on an abadaba honeymoon
I go screechin' and a-squealin' and a-howlin' like a big baboon
Oh honey I'll explode if you don't come and kiss me soon
Music
Honey you know that I'm gonna be true to you
I'll keep you in bananas and bring you coconuts too
And we'll settle down in the nearest county zoo
Oh, ranga tanga ring ting tong I'm related to old king kong
Honey won't you say you're mine
With a honky tonky monkey shine
When you hold my hand I'm a pre-historic man,
I go ape
