"The Monkey" as written by Pearl King, Dave Bartholomew, Jacques Clayeux, Philippe Teboul, Thomas Darnal, David Jamet, Santiago Ignaci Casariego, Manu Chao, Olivier Dahan, Tomas Arroyos Valle and Antoine Chao....
I said yeah
Now three little monkeys sat on a coconut tree
Discussing things has they are said to be

Said one to the other, now listen you two
There is a certain rumour that can't be true
That man descended from our noble race
The funny idea is a big disgrace

No monkey ever deserted his wife
Nor her baby and ruin her life
I said yeah, monkey speaks his mind
And another thing you will never see

A monkey build a fence around a coconut tree
And let all the coconuts go to waist
Forbidding all other monkeys to come and taste
Now if I build a fence around this tree

Starvation will cause you to steal from me
I said yea, the monkey speaks his mind
Here is another thing a monkey won't do
Go out at night and get on a stew

Or use a gun a club or a knife
To take another monkey's life
Yes man descended the worthless bum
But my god brothers from us he did not come

Yeah, the monkey speaks his mind
