lyrics

I saw you standing by the monkey house
your face pressed close to see.
Your scarf was dipped in mustard,
your pantleg soaked up to your knee.
You looked like an orangutan,
your hair so wild and free.
My heart went bump inside my chest,
I said, "That's the one for me."

I wanna go play in the monkey house
In the monkey house with you
We can swing in the trees with the monkeys
Or fling some monkey poo
We can do a little dance and somersault
(If something gets broken, it's not our fault)
I wanna go play with the monkeys
In the monkey house with you.

There's lot's of things to do in this world
Places to go and see
Some people like to ride their bike
And some just watch TV
There's some folks that talk all day long
And they're still talking while I'm singing this song
Then there's people like you and me
Who laugh and play and sing.

I wanna go play in the monkey house
In the monkey house with you
We can swing in the trees with the monkeys
Or fling some monkey poo
We can do a little dance and somersault
(If something gets broken, it's not our fault)
I wanna go play with the monkeys
In the monkey house with you.

Each morning I pop out of bed
And wonder what I'll do
I could draw some funny pictures
Or make some salty stew
I could crawl inside an anthill
And learn the things they do
The best things always happen
When I'm hanging out with you

I wanna go play in the monkey house
In the monkey house with you
We can swing in the trees with the monkeys
Or fling some monkey poo
We can do a little dance and somersault
(If something gets broken, it's not our fault)
I wanna go play with the monkeys
In the monkey house with you.

Yeah I wanna go play with the monkeys
In the monkey house with you.
