NURSERY RHYMES lyrics : "There's a Monkey Sitting in My Family Tree"

There's a monkey
Sittin' in my family tree
Up near the top

Where everyone can see
And people keep sayin'
How he looks like me

So ask him politely,
"Dear Mr Monkey,
Could you please come down

From the family tree"
There's a monkey
Sittin' in my family tree

Pickin' off leaves
Quite studiously
And no matter how polite I am

He keeps ignoring me
So I ask Uncle Joe
On the branch below

Could you please throw the monkey
From the family tree
There's a monkey

Sittin' in my family tree
Clinging to his branch
Quite obstinately

And what he did to Uncle Joe
Has really angered me
So I've got a rock

In my old slingshot
And I'm going to knock that monkey
From the family tree

There's a monkey
Sittin' in my family tree
Smiling down

So mockingly
At the way he caught the rock
And threw it back at me

So what I've done is
Got my father's gun
And I'm gonna shoot that monkey

In the family tree
There's a monkey
Sittin' in my family tree

Laughing
Quite ridiculously
'Cause every shot I took has missed

And made a fool of me
But he won't laugh long,
He'll be good and gone

When I drop this atom bomb
On the family tree
There's a monkey

Sittin' in my family tree
Looking
Very mournfully

When I ask if there's room
Up on his branch for me
And with a very sad face,

Up in outer space
I take my place beside
The monkey in the family tree
