*Hello, hello Mister Monkey
You're still so fast and funky
Hello, hello Mister Monkey
You should have been a clown*

Once he was so famous, that little old clown
Everybody used to know his name
Now he's a nameless but happy old guy
The children laugh if only he walks by

(*x2 repeat)

When the sun is shining, he goes to the park
Climbs the empty bandstand on the green
Doing for me children his famous routine
So they still laugh when slowly he walks home...

(*x2 repeat)
