Lyrics



The Monkey and the Baboon
Verse
When I was young, I think about three
My Grandpa's farm, is where I'd be
The back porch, bouncing on his knee
My Grandpa, sang this song to me
Chorus
The monkey and the baboon, was a playing in the grass
The monkey stuck his finger, up the baboon's ass
The baboon said, dog gone your soul
Keep your finger out of my ass hole
Asshole, asshole, asshole, asshole
Lead
Verse
Time goes by, and now I'm grown
Got me a three year old, of my own
Setting on my knee, in our happy home
Now I sing, my boy this song
Chorus
The monkey and the baboon, was a playing in the grass
The monkey stuck his finger, up the baboon's ass
The baboon said, dog gone your soul
Keep your finger out of my asshole
Asshole, asshole, asshole
Keep your finger out of my asshole
Asshole, asshole, asshole, asshole
The monkey and the baboon, was a playing in the grass
The monkey stuck his finger, up the baboon's ass
The baboon said, dog gone your soul
Keep your finger out of my asshole
Asshole, asshole, asshole, asshole
The monkey and the baboon, was a playing in the grass
The monkey stuck his finger, up the baboon's ass
The baboon said, dog gone your soul
Keep your finger out of my asshole
Asshole, asshole, asshole, asshole

Great funkster feel here. No a big fan of the subject matter but hey I had a wry smile on my face imagining the singer telling the story! Reminds me of some cool Grandmaster Flash riff but maybe that was the trumpet part. It was one of those grooves that chugged along and made you sing along.

Nice Song. Very enjoyable. Love the genre anyway! Good production and balance of instruments. ...............................................................................................
