Lyrics
If you believe in Darwin's theory
I'm not saying you have to but it's an interesting theory
Darwin said we all evolve from monkeys
If his theory is accurate and who am I to say?
Does the opposite work going the other way?
If it does I wanna devolve back to a monkey

I wanna be a monkey that's for sure
I wanna be a monkey like Curious George

I would sit around all day just eating bananas
I might be naked or just wear pyjamas
And make my money appearing in hilarious movies
Monkey see, monkey do
That would be my excuse
It's not my fault, I'm just a monkey who can see

I wanna be a monkey, that'd be nice
I wanna be a monkey, eating other monkey's lice

When they say it's so easy that a monkey could do it
I'd be more than happy to prove it
Then you'd know for sure if it was easy or not
And if you wanna see the home of Michael Jackson
I could provide some simian distraction
Cuz we all know monkeys are Michael's second biggest weakness

I wanna be a monkey yes I do
I wanna be a monkey and fling my poo
I wanna be a monkey
I'd be agape if I was an ape
What a thrilla to be a gorilla
It would rock to be a macaque
I wanna be a monkey
