Oh, I used to live in a tree
oh, I love but there was not enough for me
so I paved a road to the city
and [?note?] the rest of the monkeys
[scatting]
? I'm a smart monkey ??
so we leave ??
I am the proudest monkey that I know
monkey see, monkey do [scat]
monkey see, monkey do

When I walk, I walk so tall
not bent, all doubled up like the other monkeys that I know
still I don't know if I've a soul
or if heaven's a place to go
or if a-hell's where we burn
if a-sinning's what we do
and oh I'm the smartest monkey that I know
monkey see, monkey do, monkey see

[??]
who caught the enemy
who taught this monkey think he's so great
who taught this monkey to burn
taught this monkey to turn
in betrayal of his friends
we are the proudest monkeys
we are the proudest monkeys
you and me are the proudest monkeys
you and I am the proudest monkey
monkey see, monkey do, hey
monkey see, monkey do
monkey see, monkey do
monkey see, monkey do
monkey see, monkey do
monkey see, monkey do
monkey see, monkey do
monkey see, monkey do
monkey see, monkey do
monkey see, monkey do
monkey see, monkey do
sweet lady sweet lady sweet lady sweet lady sweet lady sweet lady sweet lady sweet lady sweet lady sweet lady sweet lady
Proudest Monkey
main lyrics
Swing in this tree
Oh I am bounce around so well
Branch to branch, limb to limb you see
All in a day's dream
I'm stuck
Like the other monkeys here
I am a humble monkey
Sitting up in here again
But then came the day
I climbed out of these safe limbs
Ventured away
Walking tall, head high up and singing
I went to the city
Car horns, corners and the gritty
Now I am the proudest monkey you've ever seen
Monkey see, monkey do

Then comes the day
Staring at myself I turn to question me
I wonder do I want the simple, simple life that I once lived in well
Oh things were quiet then
In a way they were the better days
But now I am the proudest monkey you've ever seen
Monkey see, monkey do
Monkey see, monkey do
