What a grumpy monkey you are
The grumpiest of monkeys I’ve seen by far
Have they taken your bananas, stolen your grapes?
Is that the reason you’re the grumpiest of apes?
You are usually quite mellow, not pent up with rage
But wait……..are you running free, or stuck in a cage?
For if you are not running wild and free
Then it is little wonder it’s a grumpy monkey I see
Or is there something more profound on your mind?
Like the state of the world run by mankind
Forests are dwindling and not in great shape
Maybe the world would be better if run by an ape
While sitting in judgement sat staring at me
Don’t judge all mankind by the world that you see
For just like monkeys there are good and there’s bad
That we can’t work together, is that why you’re sad?
