Lyrics
(This is a gorilla girl. One, two, three)
Gave to the gorilla girl, gobs and gobs of love.
No one else would touch that girl unless they wore a glove.
Gifted was this girl of mine, great knowledge could she grasp.
But once she ate a golf pro and vomited in the grass.

But I love my groovy gorilla girl,
And her groovy, gorgeous gape, oh!
And her fabulous zoo-keeper father
My love looks like an ape!

My folks say she's wrong for me; this girl is a mistake.
Whenever I date gorilla girl they whack me with a rake.
Took her out to a picnic at a girl scout jamboree.
Golly did those girl scouts gape at gorilla girl and me.

But I love my groovy gorilla girl,
And her groovy, gorgeous gape, oh!
And her fabulous zoo-keeper father
My love looks like an ape!
