Lyrics

The Primates had an argument
At the Toronto Zoo last week
The old Queen Betty had ended her reign
Over before her time
Princess Molly sitting on top of a rock
Grooming lice off her Sister Susan
Molly thinks she’s the next, takes a look ‘round
It’s her turn to rule, she picks up the crown
And parades out to hang with the apes

Well the tough old gal Putsie runs through the monkey house
Chasing Susan and primogenitor Molly
And there’s hair pulling and lacerations
But hey that’s the baboon way
If you don’t like it you can get out
This night there’s a battle then a truce
As they take their stand
Down in Baboonland

A parody of "Jungleland" by Bruce Springsteen

this is brilliant. i don't know a lot about Bruce but i know there is a general vibe in his catalogue about where he's from and what life is like there, and what the people are like...god i hope i'm right about that...and THIS jingle replicating that for baboons...i'm just amazed.

I think the last time Nigel played one I had worked on Brad was singing about Ann Hornaday so I'm not optimistic either.

I'm fond of Mr. Fitzpatrick's prognostication. But I'm not counting any baboons. . . .er, chickens.

I know someone who's going to love this. And to think they all started out as cute, little chimps.

Brad is of course always the go-to guy for monkey-related 5-syllable lyrics :)
