Lyrics verse:
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 COCONUT TREE
AND THE MONKEY GAY,
AT THE BREAK OF DAY
LIKED TO HEAR
HIS CHIMPIE SAY,

Chorus:
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'RE HAPPY
AND GAY,
SWINGING AND SINGING
IN THEIR HUNKY,
TONKY 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.
