Thread Name: Lyr Req: Monkey tune, Belafonte
Subject: Monkey tune, Belafonte
I'm looking lyrics for a tune recorded by Harry Belafonte that begins:

"On Monday mornin', I got up late
There was this'a monkey outside me gate

The chorus begins:

"Don't know what to say the monkey won't do..."

The song wryly details the mayhem and depredations committed by the monkey and winds up with an invitation to the listener to join Harry for a repast of monkey stew in the none-too-distant future! I've looked in the DT without success. Anyone know this one?

Many thanks!
