"The monkey"

Now three little monkeys sat on a coconut tree
Discussing things has they are said to be
Said one to the other, "Now listen you two
There is a certain rumor that can't be true"

"That man descended from our noble race
The funny idea is a big disgrace
No monkey ever deserted his wife
Nor her baby and ruin her life"

I said, "Yeah, monkey speaks his mind"

"And another thing you will never see
A monkey build a fence around a coconut tree
And let all the coconuts go to waste
Forbidding all other monkeys to come and taste
Now if I build a fence around this tree
Starvation will cause you to steal from me"

I said, "Yeah, the monkey speaks his mind"

"Here is another thing a monkey won't do
Go out at night and get on a stew
Or use a gun a club or a knife
To take another monkey's life"

"Yes, man descended the worthless bum
But my god, brothers from us he did not come"

Yeah, the monkey speaks his mind
