Does anyone know any songs about chess-playing Colobus monkeys in Armenia?

You see I'm due to give this concert, in the monkey house of Yerevan zoo, to the national Armenian chess team. Please be as specific as you can e.g. songs about dart-playing Colobus monkeys in Armenia probably won't go down too well (as far as I know Armenians don't play darts).

There's a song from the Marx Brothers movie "Coconuts" about "Way down among the mangoes, where the monkey gang goes, you can see them do, the little monkey doo." But I don't suppose that's what you have in mind.

Hi LJ. Nice try!

What I actually had in mind was a satirical dig at all of these requests for songs on specific subjects - requests which appear to be getting more and more specific! Went down like a 'lead balloon', didn't it?

Shimrod, you may be right that we're at the point where it almost sounds credible for you to request "songs about chess-playing Colobus monkeys in Armenia." I can't say I like these list threads very well, either.
It's one thing when a person really has an interest, but some of these "list" threads don't seem to have much purpose.

At the very least, it would be helpful if people who add to the list, would post a link or the lyrics for the songs they're listing.

So, here's a link to Hartlepool Monkey.

....but the Duck, Duck, Goose (or whatever) thread has some songs that weren't posted elsewhere.

"Oh, The Monkeys Have No Tails in Zamboanga". Only thing I can think of right now. Not exactly what was asked for. Surely some brilliant 'Catter has written 1 about the likeness between monkeys & toddlers: tendency to CLIMB with total diregard of danger(cuz kids don't know what that is, I guess) to life & limb. & who said "If you put a bunch of monkeys in front of a rank of typewriters, sooner or later you'd get Shakespeare"??

Somebody said (and Jo Brand repeated it): if you have an infinite number of monkeys banging away at an infinite number of typewriters, eventually they'll type 'Hey hey we're the monkeys' ...

Jesse Fuller's number about the Monkey and the Engineer is always good for a grin.

There is a calypso, "Monkey." I have a recording of it by Lord Flea on Capitol LP #T842, SWINGIIN' CALYPSOS.

Hear it hers:   www.box.net/shared/7lg3y904ko

Just returned from a wonderful organ concert. The second song played was "Abba Dabba Honeymoon." How could we all forget that!?

BTW, try saying Abba Dabba while eating an Abba Zabba...you might lose a few fillings.
