They had the righteous stuff
They were really quite arrogant
In their magnificent flying machines
They were the chosen few
They loved God and the flag
They had hair-cuts you could set your watch by

All hail to Monkey '61, all hail to Monkey '61

He was the first one in space
Just like Henry The Cat
Was the first to wear Channel No.5
They taught two-two song
They taught him right from wrong
With their sweet nuzzles and electric shocks

So all hail to Monkey '61, all hail to Monkey '61
Where was his ticker tape parade? For Monkey '61
Where was his lunch with Jackie O?
