THE MONKEYS DISAGREE
Three monkeys sat in a coconut tree
Discussing things that are said to be.
Said one to the other, Now listen you two
There's a certain rumor that can't be true.
That man descended from our noble race,
The very idea is a disgrace.
No monkey ever deserted his wife,
Starved her babies and ruin her life.
And you've never known a mother monk
To leave her babies with others to bunk.
Or pass them on to one another
"Til they scarely know who is their mother.
And another thing you'll never see
Is build a fence around a coconut tree,
And let their coconuts go to waste.
Forbidding all the other monks to taste.
Why if I put a fence around a tree
Starvation would force you to steal from me.
Here's another thing a monk won't do
Is go out at night and get in a stew.
Or use a gun or club or knife
To take some other monkey's life.
Yes, man descended the orney cuss
But brother he didn't come from us!
Guess that lets us know we didn't evolve from monkeys.
