Primates



Mom and Dad must have been primates Coz bananas are my favourite food When it comes to stuff this guy eats a lot For bananas I'm always in the mood The fact that when passing a tree with vines Something very deep down inside Urges me to climb, holler and beat my chest Some primordial force to abide Bananas for breakfast, for lunch and for dinner With mounds of yummy whipped cream Oh heavenly joy! There ain't nuttin' finer They're the object of all my dreams Okay, I'll try to get back to reality But each time I hear an old squeeze box I get all excited and feel like performing It invades my innermost thoughts Sitting here typing while peeling a banana Is there help for someone like me Cause my skin's definitely got a yellow tinge Often hang from our backyard tree! Mom and Dad must have been primates Other signs are too numerous to tell Obsessed by scratching my armpits til they're raw And picking my honker as well! © Jack Ellison 2013

    Gee Jack! You're sounding more like you belong with us. You can bring Cathie along...Troll Lake Town just voted to be called Acorn Falls. Troll Lake will keep it's name. The Town is trying to attract tourists. All should go well with Armidillo Billy as he sheriff to keep the peace. Well, as much as he can with Dragon around...Yes! I mean you Dragon! Put the mailman down! ... We have enough trouble getting the mail delivered. I know your motto. If it runs, chase it! Silly Dragon! Put him Down!

    HAHAHAHHA! We are all originated from the primates. Some can handle itchy armpits better than others. :) This was great!

    It's the hanging from trees that can be hazardous! LOL
