I know that this song is not necessarily Tiki but this one verse made me laugh and its relevant to my chat name.

"Cause the only time that I feel at ease
Is swinging up and down in the coconut trees.
Oh what a life of luxury to be like an apeman. "

Apeman by the Kinks




Ay ay ay, ay ay ay, tell you baby, you huggin' up the big monkey man

I've seen no sign of you, I've only heard that you huggin' up the big monkey man

Is not lie, is not lie, them a tell me, huggin' up the big monkey man

Now I know that, now I understand, you turnin' a monkey on me!

  • Toots and the Maytals


I like it. Very appropriate reply. I have that song on CD.

"This one goes out to all the bouncers... Big Big Monkeyman"


Yes mon, that's the Specials version!


I was bitten by a boar
I was gouged and I was gored
But I pulled on through
Yes I'm a sack of broken eggs
I always have an unmade bed
Don't you?

Well, I hope we're not too messianic
Or a trifle too satanic
We love to play the blues

Well I am just a monkey man
I'm glad you are a monkey, monkey woman too

......Rolling Stones

We are singin' monkey jive not Disco-rilla. There is a difference.

I like all of the replies. Very cool

Hey PJ no worries, I was just......Monkeying around.Oh my!
Here is a link for you all you monkeys.
No tikis, no drinks, no bamboo, just singing monkeys.



Well, I coulda put "Abba Dabba Honeymoon".
Or "The Monkey Wrapped His Tail Around The Flagpole". ;P



"The higher the monkey climbs the more him expose." Jamaican proverb popularized in the early 60's by Justin Hines and the Dominoes recording "The Higher the Monkey Climb."

Okay, you jocko homos, enough with the monkey business!

"I can talk like an ape, walk like an ape, do what a monkey can do. God made man but a monkey supplied the glue"


Trader Woody

Fox the fox
Rat the rat
You can ape the ape
I know about that
There is one thing you must be sure of
I can't take any more
Darling, don't you monkey with the monkey
Monkey, monkey, monkey
Don't you know you're going to shock the monkey

........Lil' Petey Gabriel

Well man created the cardboard box to sleep in it
And man converted the newspaper to a blanket
Well you have to admit that he's come a long way
Since swinging about in the trees
Well man discovered the park bench can make a transition
And the rubbish tip makes a valid form of nutrition
With discoveries like these
Civilisation agrees
To give itself a pat on the back
We're the smartest monkeys
The evolution's plain to see
We're the dominant of the species
The smartest monkeys

Ooo-ooo I love the monkey's uncle
Ya-ya I love the monkey's uncle
Whoa-whoa I love the monkey's uncle
And the monkey's uncle's ape for me!

Ooo-ooo I love the monkey's uncle
Ya-ya I love the monkey's uncle
Whoa-whoa I love the monkey's uncle
And I'm mad about his chimpanzee!

Ooo-ooo I love the monkey's uncle
Ya-ya I love the monkey's uncle
Whoa-whoa I love the monkey's uncle
And I wish I were the monkey's aunt!

as sung by Annette!
(yes, that Annette, from the Mickey Mouse Club, but I'm afraid I don't know which of the many mediocre live-action Disney movies in the mid-60s this song is from...)

Now I'm the king of the swingers
Oh, the jungle VIP
I've reached the top and had to stop
And that's what botherin' me
I wanna be a man, mancub
And stroll right into town
And be just like the other men
I'm tired of monkeyin' around!
...King Louie from the Jungle Book
I cant stop!!!!!

(chorus) Brass Monkey - that funky Monkey
Brass Monkey - junkie
That funky Monkey
Got this dance that's more than real
Drink Brass Monkey - here's how you feel
Put your left leg down - your right leg up
Tilt your head back - let's finish the cup
M.C.A. with the bottle - D. rocks the can
Adrock gets nice with Charlie Chan
We're offered Moet - we don't mind Chivas
Wherever we go with bring the Monkey with us
Adrock drinks three - Mike D. is D.
Double R. foots the bill most definitely
I drink Brass Monkey and I rock well
I got a Castle in Brooklyn - that's where I dwell
(repeat chorus)
Cause I drink it anytime - and anyplace
When it's time to get ill - I pour it on my face
Monkey tastes Def when you pour it on ice
Come on y'all it's time to get nice
Coolin' by the lockers getting kind of funky
Me and the crew - we're drinking Brass Monkey
This girl walked by - she gave me the eye
I reached in the locker - grabbed the Spanish Fly
I put it with the Monkey - mixed it in the cup
Went over to the girl, "Yo baby, what's up?"
I offered her a sip - the girl she gave me lip
It did begin the stuff wore in and now she's on my tip
(repeat chorus)
Step up to the bar - put the girl down
She takes a big gulp and slaps it around
Take a sip - you can do it - you get right to it
We had a case in the place and we went right through it
You got a dry Martini - thinking you're cool
I'll take your place at the bar - I smack you off your stool
I'll down a '40 dog" in a single gulp
And if you got beef you'll get beat to a pulp
Monkey and parties and reelin' and rockin'
Def, def - girls, girls - all y'all jockin'
The song and dance keeping you in a trance
If you don't buy my record I got my advance
I drink it - I think it - I see it - I be it
I love Brass Monkey but I won't give D. it
We got the bottle - you got the cup
Come on everybody let's get ffffff
(repeat chorus)

Well, that would make sense, wouldn't it?
I just heard it on the Music of Disney CD- faaaarrr too catchy.

And another:

Bart: How would I go about creating a half-man, half-monkey-type creature?
Teacher: That would be playing God...
BArt: God-schmod, I want my monkey-man!
