A Song About Monkeys Lyrics by Charlie McDonnell

 

A Song About Monkeys by Charlie McDonnell


You're my favourite animal, but I'm biased I guess
Because you look quite a bit like me
You're not as eloquent and you've a hairier chest
But I can't pick my family
As I shake your hand I can feel your grip
And it's definitely firmer than mine
They say a strong handshake shows the man is equipped
But if I called you a man I'd be crossing a line
You're an animal
You're not like me
You're an animal
I have dominion over thee
You might be my cousin
But I don't know if you could be my friend
'Cause you don't seem the person on
Which when I'm in need I could depend
In fact when I look closer
You don't seem like a person at all
Do you have opinions?
Do you keep morals?
Do you even have a soul?
You're an animal
You're not like me
You're an animal
Oh what a silly thing to be
And when I look at you
Do you know what I see?
I see me
I see me
'Cause when I look at you
Yeah I can't help but see myself
Next to you in the tree
You're my favourite animal, but I'm biased I guess
Because you look quite a bit like me
And when I stand to admire you I can't help but confess
That your mannerisms fill me with glee
You're partial to bananas, and I'm munching on chips
That I'm sharing with the friend by my side
You peel it from the bottom, concentrating as you sit
Break it in two and pass half to the friend you're beside
You're an animal
You're just like me
'Cause I'm an animal
We're of the same biology
Oh mister monkey man, I've got a favour can't you see
I was wondering if you would make a monkey out of me?
