The Monkey Doodle Doo.
Words and Music by Irving Berlin
Published 1913 by Waterson, Berlin & Snyder Co.
Oh my hon-ey do come and hur-ry to the Zoo,
Where the fun-ny lit-tle mon-keys are,
If you want to laugh for an hour and a half,
Bet-ter hur-ry up and take a car,
Come and see them dance,
that pe-cul-iar lit-tle prance,
You'll be cra-zy ov-er eve-ry bar,
Come and see them do that mon-key doo-dle doo.
Watch those mon-keys mon-key doo-dle
all a-round, all a-round, all a-round,
Watch those monks go off their noo-dle
as they bound 'round,
Look, look, look, look, look
at the fun-ny lit-tle mon-keys in the cage,
Eat-ing pea-nuts while they're mon-key doo-dle-ing,
Watch those mon-keys throw their shoul-der in the air,
In the air, in the air,
See them snap their claws and hol-ler
it's a bear there, See that mon-key on that bench,
Lead the band with a mon-key wrench,
While the rest are danc-ing, That mon-key doo-dle doo,
Hon-ey hear that pure lit-tle mon-key o-ver-ture,
Com-ing from the lit-tle mon-key band,
Can't you see the tails wind-ing all a-round the rails,
Hear the lead-er of them all com-mand,
Lis-ten to his moan in a lan-guage of his own,
Take your mon-key lad-ies by the hand,
Take your part-ners for that mon-key doo-dle doo.
