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
