C Fmaj7He told his friends about it They thought that it was daft They laughed and laughed and laughed and laughed And laughed and laughed and laughed. But he left his branch, he left his tree He leapt apon the floor But he couldn't leave the cage Because a lock was on the door He talked to the zookeepers He asked to be set free But nobody would listen 'Cos they couldn't speak monkey He never did go skiing He couldn't go because Martin was a monkey And a monkey's what he was. He Amstood and looked out from the cage It Emsimply wasn't fair Why Amdid he have to stay inside When Emskiing was out there? But that's the way life was And there was nothing he could do It seemed that all things had a place And his was in the zoo. So Martin never got his dream He simply sat and cried He spent his life in London Zoo Until the day he died. He never did go skiing He couldn't go because Martin was a monkey And a monkey's what he was. A monkey's what he was. A monkey's what he was.
