"That Monkey Tune" lyrics - IRVING BERLIN

"That Monkey Tune"

[1st verse:]
Down in a sunny jungle town
Where the monkeys run around
Lived a crazy little monkey who loved to sing
A chimpanzee in a cocoanutty tree
Heard his nutty melody, she
Fell in love with his singing
From the branches a-clinging
She'd pitch her voice in a monkey key
And yell with all her might

Sing that monkey tune
You monkey loon
Don't dare to stop, hurry up, hurry up
I want to hear that strain so queer
Because I'm crazy about that monkey tune

[2nd verse:]
She kept a-shouting from the tree
For his nutty melody
Till the crazy little monkey looked up and said
"I want to spoon 'neath the monkey honey moon
To the nutty wedding tune, soon"
Mister and Missus Monkey
Pitched their voices in one key
And now they can't get a wink of sleep
The baby yells all night
