Why Am I Not a Monkey?

Strolling through the jungle, tall trees all around
I see a shape, figure swinging on the vines
In the canopy, making screeching sounds
Oh how I wish I could suddenly be
A baboon, orangutang or any monkey!

Why am I not a monkey? x2

I see the animals, roaming through the brush
Could be a hippo, a camel or maybe just
A moose, a donkey or an armadillo
Oh how I want to be like a lemur or gorilla

Why am I not a monkey? x4

If I had a tail, I’d swing through trees all day
If I were a monkey, it wouldn’t socially awkward when I say
Ooo ee oo ee oo ahh ahh

Why am I not a monkey? x6
