lyrics

THE MONKEY SONG
I've been to the zoo on Sunday afternoon
The monkey looked at me from the other side
I could read so much sadness in her eyes
Oh yes, mate, I would take you home, your home
If only I could

They said, they wanted to save the last of your kind
But they are cutting down trees in Amazonia

They took everything away from you
Your dreams, your life, your freedom, your choice
They put you in a cell in the name of science and leisure
Oh yes, mate, I would take you home, your home
If only I could

They said they wanted to save the last of your kind
But they are cutting down trees in Amazonia

They said they wanted to save the last of your kind
But they are cutting down trees in Amazonia
And poisoning skies and rivers In America
Oh yes, mate, I'd like to stop that insanity
If only I could

Think of the monkeys dancing in the trees
Think of the monkeys waking up in the morning
Monkeys
Free
Alive
At home

I've been to the zoo on Sunday afternoon
The monkeys looked at me from the other side
I could read so much sadness in their eyes
Oh yes, mates, I would take you home, your home
If only I could
Oh yes, mates, I wanna take you home
Your home
