A Song About Monkeys

(Charlie Mcdonnell)

	  		 

          G                         D 
You're my favorite animal, but I'm biased I guess 
             Em                   C
Because you look quite a bit like me 
             G                      D 
You're not as eloquent and you've a hairier chest 
      Em                C D 
But I can't pick my family 


       G	            D 
As I shake your hand I can feel your grip 
         Em			    C 
And it's definitely firmer than mine 
            G		    		   D 
They say a strong handshake shows the man is equipped 
         Em			   C	     D 
But if I called you a man I'd be crossing a line 


          Em 
You're an animal 
                  C D 
You're not like me 
          Em 
You're an animal 
         C		D 
I have dominion over thee 

G D Em C  
G D Em C 

          G	 
You might be my cousin  
    D			             Em	   C D 
But I don't know if you could be my friend 
		  G 
'Cause you don't seem the person on 
D				     Em	C D 
Which when I'm in need I could depend 


              G 
In fact when I look closer 
    D			         Em  C D 
You don't seem like a person at all 
	G 
Do you have opinions? 
D 
  Do you keep morals? 
Em		      C	 D 
Do you even have a soul? 

          Em 
You're an animal 
                C  D 
You're not like me 
           Em 
You're an animal 
            C		    D 
Oh what a silly thing to be 

G D Em C  
G D Em C 

G 		         D 
  And when I look at you 
		        Em 
Do you know what I see? 
      D 
I see me  
      C 
I see me 
 		         D 
'Cause when I look at you 
 		                 Em 
Yeah I can't help but see myself 
 	     	     D   C D 
Next to you in the tree 


	 G			    D 
You're my favorite animal, but I'm biased I guess 
             Em		  C 
Because you look quite a bit like me 
             G			   D 
And when I stand to admire you I can't help but confess 
           Em		      	      C D 
That your mannerisms fill me with glee 


 	G			     D 
You're partial to bananas, and I'm munching on chips  
          Em				   C 
That I'm sharing with the friend by my side 
     G			     	     D 
You peel it from the bottom, concentrating as you sit 
Em			  C	       D		  C 
Break it in two and pass half to the friend you're beside 


 	   Em 
You're an animal	(oowaoo) 
                  C      
You're just like me	(oowaoo) 
	         Em 
'Cause I'm an animal	(oowaoo) 
 	       C        D 
We're of the same biology 


G		      D				  C  D 
Oh mister monkey man, I've got a favor can't you see 
G		    D				   C  D 
I was wondering if you would make a monkey out of me?
