"Gitarzan" as written by and Leiber/stoller....

He's free as a breeze
He's always at ease
He lives in the jungle and hangs by his knees
As he swings through the trees without a trapese
In his B.V.D.s

He's got a union card and he's practicin' hard
To play the guitar
Gonna be a big star
Yeah, he's gonna go far
And carry moonbeams home in a jar

He ordered Chet's guitar course C.O.D.
Makes A and E and he's workin' on B
Digs C&W and R&B
And me and the chimpanzee agree
That one day soon he'll be a celebrity

Get it!
Get it!
Get it!
Get it!

He's a guitar man!
He's all you can stand,
Give him a hand, Gitarzan!

(Gitarzan sings)

He's got a girl named Jane with no last name
Kinda homely and plain, but he loves her just the same
'Cause she kindles the flame and it drives him insane
When he hears her sing, she really does her thing
It's her claim to fame, come on!
Sing one Jane

Jane: Babay,
Whaooooo Babay!
Whaooooo Babay!

How 'bout that?
Lets here it for Jane!

Jane: (Thank ya folks...)

Well, they got a pet monkey
He likes to get drunky
And sing boogie woogie
And it sounds real funky
Come on, yo' time, boy
Sing one, monkey
Here we go

(Monkey grunts)

Lets here it for the monkey!
(He He He He)

On Saturday night they need some excitement
Jane gets right and the monkey gets tight
And their voices unite, in the pale moonlight
And it sounds alright, yeah, it's dynamite
It's outta sight!
Let's hear it, right nnnnnow!

(Gitarzan, Jane, and monkey all together)

Jane: Shut up, baby, I'm tryin' to sing!

Get it!
Get it!
Get it!

And his jungle band!
They're all you can stand,
Give 'em a hand, Gitarzan!
[Repeat once while fading]
