Ray Stevens – Gitarzan lyrics
He's free as the breeze
He's always at ease
He lives in the jungle and hangs by his knees
As he swings through the trees
Without a trapeze in his B. V. D. S
He's got a union card and he's practicing hard
To play, the guitar, gonna be a big star
Yeah he's gonna go far
And carry moonbeams home in a jar
He ordered Chet's guitar course C. O. D.
Makes A and E and he's working on B
Digs C&W and R&B and me and the chimpanzees agree
That one day soon he'll be a celebrity
Get it, get it, get it.

Gitarzan, he's a gitar man
He's all you can stand
Give him a hand, gitarzan

He's got a girl named Jane
With no last name
Kinda homely and plain
But he loves her just the same
Cause she kindles the flame
And it drives him insane
When he hears her sing
She really does her thing
It's her claim to fame
Come on sing one Jane
Baby, baby, oh baby
Baby, oh baby
(How about that, let's hear it for Jane!)

They've got a pet monkey
Who likes to get drunk, he
Sings boogie woogie
And it sounds real funky
Come on, your time boy
Sing one monkey
(makes monkey sounds)
Let's hear it for the monkey
On Saturday night they need some excitement
Jane gets right and the monkey gets tight
And their voices unite
In the pale moonlight
And it sounds all right

Yeah, it's dynamite, it's out of sight
Let's hear it right now
Baby, baby oh baby
Yeah, shut up baby, I'm trying to sing
Get it, get it, get it
Repeat Chorus
