I know that it's a hard waiting time...
I've been singing this song for a couple of hours now, it's kinda stuck at the back of my brain...so I thought "Let's share this with the world!"
(yes, I am extreeeeeemly evil)

Lyrics:

Oh there's a
Monkey in my pocket
And he's stealing all my change.
His stare is blank and glassy
I suspect that he's deranged.

Those slimy feet, those crooked teeth
The drooling and the smell
If I didn't know any better
I'd say that I'm in hell !

Chorus:
Oh Monkey,
You clinge on to me,
Please go to where monkeys like you should be!

I ran away, far away
As far as I could
The monkey kept clinging on to me
Just like fire on wood.

I poked it's head, I bit it's tail
I yelled and I screamed,
Please Voodoo Lady help me now
Get rid of this freakin' thing!

Chorus (repeat)

The Voodoo Lady said to me,
Just go and ask LeChuck.
LeChuck? Yes. Why?! Oh, I don't know
Just go and try your luck!

So on I went, the monkey too
And I showed it to him.
He said: Argh! Well I'll be damned,
'tis my pet monkey Tim!

Chorus (repeat)

This' yours?
Yes.

(instrumental)

And I said "This is yours?!"
Yes no doubt it,
Of course!
Get him off me!

'cause I will
Certainly, hopefully, probably
Kill this monkey!

Stole my change!
Tim would not!
Yes he did, he got caught!
He would never steal anything from you... Just get your monkey away...Leave my monkey alone...Tell him to leave me alone!

I've got no more
Monkey in my pocket,
And I've got all my change
I pre-ordered Monkey Island
And now I have to wait...

    actually, i have a confession to make. this little jingle has found its way into me and my girlfriends brains. at least once a day one of us randomly breaks out into song. we're still kinda confused as to how you've done this to us

  • That's excellent! I think it's better than the original super-secret hidden second verse of "Monkey In My Pocket"*

    Oh, there's a monkey in my pocket
    And he's playing with my keys
    He's anxious, loud and gassy
    But at least he don't have fleas.

    *(I'm not making that up! I had two verses ready in case we needed it but we ended up only using the first one)

    :eek:

    Wow! ...you actually left me speechless. Thank you! I really don't know what to say... Thank you very much!
    You guys are great, and I hope that we'll get to share cool moments like this one in the future, when we're all old and funny-looking.

  • Yesterday I took a chose... I could have rather keep studying my brains off or hang out with my friends and wait for the launch of TOMI. Obviously, I took the hardest and more painfull choice: wait for the game.
    In that glorious afternoon we came across your youtube video of "Monkey in my pocket" and then we snaped. 'Till now (about 14 or 15 hours later) I still can't get it out of my head and when I'm trying to -pointlessly- study, I keep seeing this monkeys going around my bedroom...

    So... THANK YOU very much Silverwolfpet for making the waiting so funny.

    It was my pleasure...

    I happened on Monkey in my Pocket 2 days ago and loved it. Now I have a karaoke version to torment my friends and family with.



    Happy Tormenting! :D

  • You wouldn't happen to have an a capella version of your vocals rolling around somewhere? I'd be more interested in remixing the track than scaring anyone with my horrible voice... :)

    This is rather embarasing... while being ok-ish on the piano, I haven't really payed attention to my music lessons in school (as in theory lessons). A capella = voice only, no instruments? If so, I think I can pull them out of the original mix. Send me an e-mail at silverwolfpet at yahoo dot com. I'll send it to you. :)
    What kind of mix? :p

  • Just saw it!

    I have to say, I've never seen you that serious! (I'm talking about the intro of the video)

  • Woah, just saw it? Took you long enough hahahaha!

    Man is this thread old! And look, Chuck Norris wrote in it! Or was it Chuck Jordan? Either way, awesome, hehehe. Ah, fond memories...

    *goes back to work on BTTF tribute*
