Note: Words in italics are spoken.

Ooh-ooh, Ah (2x)

We've got to act like monkeys, and sound the way they do!

Come on, let's all be monkeys!

You can do it, too!

Say, "Ooh-ooh, Ah!"

Again!

Say, "Ooh-ooh, Ah!"

It worked, It worked!

Yum, yum, yum!

We've got to act like monkeys, and eat the way they do!

Come on, Let's all be monkeys!

You can do it, too!

We've got to eat a banana like a monkey!

Hold the banana and…

Chew, chew, chew the banana, chew, chew, chew! (2x)

Yay!
