1. I go ape every time I see you smile,

              F                                                                      C

    I'm a ding dong gorilla and I'll carry you cave man style,

                      G                                        F                           C

    I'm gonna bump you on the head and love you all the while.

2. Well, I'm a monkey's uncle who's a cousin to a chimpanzee,

                      F                                                                                C

    like I was reelin' and a-rockin' and a-swinging from a coconut tree,

            G                                              F                                          C  - G

    oh, honey, can't you see you bring out the monkey business in me.

 

      C

+  Ranga tanga, ring ting tong, I'm related to old King Kong,

      F                                                              C

    honey, won't you say you're mine with a honky tonky monkey shine.

         G                                            F                               C      - G

    When you hold my hand I'm a pre-historic man, I go ape !

 

                C

3. Like a barrel of monkeys on an abadaba honeymoon,

                  F                                                                             C

    I go squealin' and a-screechin' and a-howlin' like a big baboon.

               G                                   F                                     C      - G

    Well, baby, I'll explode if you don't come and kiss me soon !

4. Honey, you know that I'm gonna be true to you,

            F                                                                     C

    I'll keep you in bananas and bring you coconuts, too,

             G                                   F                      C     - G

    and we'll settle down in the nearest county zoo.
