Way down in the Congoland
Lived a happy chimpanzee
She loved a monkey with a long tail
(Lordy, how she loved him!)
Each night he would find her there
Swinging in the cocoanut tree
And the monkey gay, at the break of day
Loved to hear his Chimpie say...

"Aba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab"
Said the Chimpie to the Monk
"Baba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab"
Said the Monkey to the Chimp
All night long they'd chatter away
All day long they were happy and gay
Swinging and singing in their hunky-tonkey way

"Aba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab"
Means "Monk, I love but you"
"Baba, daba, dab" in monkey talk
Means "Chimp, I love you, too"
Then the big baboon one night in June
He married them and very soon
They went upon their aba daba honeymoon

"Aba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab"
Said the Chimpie to the Monk
"Baba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab"
Said the Monkey to the Chimp
All night long they'd chatter away
All day long they were happy and gay
Swinging and singing in their hunky-tonkey way

"Aba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab"
Means "Monk, I love but you"
"Baba, daba, dab" in monkey talk
Means "Chimp, I love you, too"
One night they were made man and wife
And now they cry, "This is the life
Since they came from their aba daba honeymoon

Well, you should have heard that band
Play upon their wedding day
Each Chimp and Monkey had nutshells
(Lordy, how they played them)
And now it is every night
High up in the cocoanut tree
It's the same old thing, with the same old swing,
When the Monk and Chimpie sing...

"Aba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab"
Said the Chimpie to the Monk
"Baba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab"
Said the Monkey to the Chimp
All night long they'd chatter away
All day long they were happy and gay
Swinging and singing in their hunky-tonkey way

"Aba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab"
Means "Monk, I love but you"
"Baba, daba, dab" in monkey talk
Means "Chimp, I love you, too"
Then the big baboon one night in June
He married them and very soon
They went upon their aba daba honeymoon

"Aba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab"
Said the Chimpie to the Monk
"Baba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab"
Said the Monkey to the Chimp
All night long they'd chatter away
All day long they were happy and gay
Swinging and singing in their hunky-tonkey way

"Aba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab"
Means "Monk, I love but you"
"Baba, daba, dab" in monkey talk
Means "Chimp, I love you, too"
One night they were made man and wife
And now they cry, "This is the life"
Since they came from their aba daba honeymoon
