Looking for a monkey inside him,
Oh, looking for the monkey inside him, mommy,
Elbowed into the monkey nut shop.
Save your little scissors eraser,
Save your little scissor eraser, mommy,
Elbowed down into the grave.
Ride the pinko taxi to Harlem,
Ride the pinko taxi to Harlem, mommy,
Save the elbowed squirrels in danger.
Where'd you buy that plaster Mohammed?
Where'd you get that plaster Mohammed, mommy?
Elbowing your way through the monument's halls.
Everyone's gone down to the races,
Everyone's gone down to the races, mommy,
Gonna elbow through one more time.
There's the little church by the seaside,
There's a little church by the seaside, mommy,
And the breakwater's holding up well.
Starting to get lumps on my forehead,
Starting to get hives on my forehead, mommy,
And they've broke out on my elbow too.
In case you didn't get the connection,
In case you didn't get the connection, mommy,
What any decent person would do.
