VP_000024 Verse 1'Way down in the Congoland Lived a happy chimpanzee, She loved a monkey with a long tail, (Lordy, how she loved him!) Each night he would find her there, Swinging in the cocoanut tree, And the monkey gay, at the break of day, Loved to hear his Chimpie say: Chorus 1Aba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab, Said the Chimpie to the Monk, Baba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab, Said the Monkey to the Chimp. All night long they'd chatter away, All day long there were happy and gay, Swinging and singing in their hunky, tonkey way. Aba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab, means Monk, I love but you, Baba, daba, dab, in monkeytalk, means Chimp, I love you too, Then the big baboon, one night in June, He married them, and very soon They went upon their aba, daba honeymoon. moon. Verse 2Well, you should have heard that band Play upon their wedding day, Each Chimp and Monkey had nutshells, Lordy, how they played them; And now it is ev'ry night, High up in the cocoanut tree, It's the same old thing, with the same old swing, When the Monk and Chimpie sing: Chorus 2Aba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab, Said the Chimpie to the Monk, Baba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab, Said the Monkey to the Chimp. All night long they'd chatter away, All day long there were happy and gay, Swinging and singing in their hunky, tonkey way. Aba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab, means Monk, I love but you, Baba, daba, dab, in monkeytalk, means Chimp, I love you too, One night they were made man and wife, And now they cry, This is the life, Since they came from their aba, daba honeymoon.
