|Broadway to Paris (Musical)|
VERSE 01: In old Brazil the land of monkeys of gandy birds and lazy donkeys,/there lived a chimpanzee./up in an old palm tree,/the lov’ly monkey queen of monkey land lived straight across the mighty Rio Grande the Chimpanzee comes but a dove,/this lov’ly queen from distant shore with tear dimmed eye and loving sigh he’d sing to her this lullaby oh.
CHORUS: Come to me come to me how I long to have you little chimpanzee/and when you walk you’ll walk with me and when you talk you’ll talk with me and when you sleep you’ll creep to sleep up in the old palm tree/will ring our tails around the rosy rails of the old plantation fence behind the coffee bales/they say good things are hard to get,/It may take years I’ll get you yet,/My chimpanzee oh come to me.
VERSE 02: This monkey queen so cute and cunning/just lay around all day a sunnin,/she’d lovers two or three/in ev’ry old palm tree,/and on the Ri’os grassy shore each night they’d bring her cocoanuts and pebbles bright they’d be monkey shines a love,/while in the leafy bow’rs above chimpanzee could hear this plea from two or three in ev’ry tree oh.
