I be a Monkeys Uncle

I be a Monkeys Uncle.

Well I be " A monkeys uncle"
Is a phrase.
Often heard in the northern race.
Refers to a street musician, with a monkey.
He would say, he was it's uncle.

It collected all the cash.
In a sash.
While he played the barrel organ.
But one day it ran away.
Taking the money with him.

He gave it to the kids.
Who spent it on toffee gigs.
The musician all Arie.
Having no money to buy.
His beer and rye.

Grabbed him by the neck, by heck.
No longer be I.
A monkeys uncle.
 It's a lie.
