"Monkey Banana" as written by and Fela Kuti....
La la la la la la la la la
La la for me

[Chorus]
La la la la la la la la la!

La la la la la la la
Fool for forty na fool forever
Na so the book people dey talk
Fool for forty na fool forever
Na so the book people dey talk
I no go tell my brother like that
You tell am realize you be fool at twenty
I no go tell my brother like that
You tell am realize you be fool at twenty
Book sense different from belly sense
Fool na fool no matter for age
Fifteen to thirty, forty to hundred
Fool na fool no matter for age

Now listen to me now

[Chorus]
Yes sir!

Hey come
Bring me the plate
Go buy am to chop
Bring me the file
Call the messenger
Hey come
Bring me the plates
Go buy am to chop
Bring me the file
Call the messenger

They run run about everywhere
They jump jump about the place
Na carry for morning, day, and night

I no sing happy monkey for you
I no say I be fool for you

[Chorus]
Okay, I agree, I don vex me to hear!

Okay, I agree, I don vex me to hear
Okay, I agree, I don vex me to hear
Okay, I agree, I don vex me to hear
Okay, I agree, I don vex me to hear
Okay, I agree, I don vex me to hear

Before I jump like monkey, give me banana
Make you hear, yes sir

Give me banana
Give me banana

[Chorus]
Yes sir!
