hi, my name is rennie-la-lou and i'm gonna sing a song for you about love and how love can tear you apart

it was a night like any other in this town
i took a bus to take a look around
i wanted romance, i wanted someone just like you
but you were locked up in Bristol Zoo
it was the summer, maybe back a year or two
on my first day-trip to the zoo......zoo
that's when i saw you, i caught your brown eyes watching mine
my heart lit up at feeding time........time

i knew, from that moment onwards, you had to be mine, and i made a vow to set you free, together we could live in the forest of dean, eating berries and kissing eachother........forest of dean

it wasn't natural, i knew this courtship was so true
i had to love you, i had to hold you in my arms
but we were parted by bars......bars
so i stuck round, waited till the dead of night
i climbed the enclosure with you......you
i put a wig on your head to make you look so nice
i bought a dress and high heels too.........too
we had a meal, fresh fruit by candlelight
then we made love till two.........two

chorus -
i love the monkey, and then he fuked her
i love the monkey, and then he fuked her
i love the monkey, and then he fuked her
i love the monkey, aaaaahh, and i fuked her

see, there's someone special in my life, someone i hold very close to my heart, but we could never be together in a crazy world like this, because the woman of my dreams just happens to be a monkey locked up in Bristol Zoo

we made a dummy from boxes and banana skins
and told the keeper it was you........you
we walked away hand in hand across the park
and then went back home just to screw......screw

chorus -
i love the monkey, and then he fuked her
i love the monkey, and then he fuked her
i love the monkey, and then he fuked her
i love the monkey, aaaaahh, and i fuked her

finally, me and Jo-lene were together, for the first time in months she finally saw the outside world, she saw beautiful people, beautiful places, but she saw my love in its physical form, which she enjoyed the most, until the authorities came and took her away and i got given that injection to stop me getting rabies, i love her and i still think about her
