Thread Name: Lyr Req: You're Bound to Look like a Monkey
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: You're Gonna Look Just Like a Monkey
A few more couplets from Hank Penny's recording of YOU'RE BOUND TO LOOK LIKE A MONKEY:

I can tell by your face
You belong to the monkey race....

I can tell by your knees
You been a-climbin' these coconut trees....

I can tell by your jaw
That a monkey was your pa....

I can tell by your skin
That a monkey was your frien'....

I can tell by your hands
That you've got monkey glands....

I can tell by your nails
That your folks hung by their tails....
