It's Getting Too Hot For Monkeys

It’s Getting Too Hot For Monkeys - Sing Up with Beccy Owen

Still image for this video

[Spoken:] This crazy world in which we live today,
Is getting rather warm , or at least that’s what they say.
The ice-caps are all melting too,
There must be something we can do, because ...

[Sung:] It’s getting too hot for monkeys,
It’s getting too hot for apes.
My baboon is starting to swoon
And my marmoset’s starting to sweat.

It’s getting too hot for monkeys,
It’s getting too hot for apes.
My orang-utan has an orange tan,
And my gibbon’s real irate.

[Part 1] We’ll have whales swimming in Ipswich,
[Part 2] Oooh
[Part 1] Boris Johnson will be snorkelling too,
[Part 2] And his coalition government in flippers.
[Part 1] Sandstorms blow through Buckingham Palace,
[Part 2] ‘One is not amused’
[Part 1] If we don’t learn to chill ... out!

[All] It’s getting too hot for monkeys,
It’s getting too hot for apes.
[Part 2] My tamarind has a sweaty chin,
[Part 1] And my primate wears factor eight.

[All] It’s getting too hot for monkeys,
It’s getting too hot for apes.
[Part 2] My pygmy shrew is saying ‘phew!’
‘Cos the earth is starting to bake.

[Part 1] Polar bears surfing in Tynemouth,
[Part 2] Oooh
[Part 1] Posh Spice might just evaporate too,
[Part 2] But only if you’re really good!
[Part 1] We’ll be huddled at the top of Ben Nevis,
[Part 2] Room for a little ‘un? Breathe in.
[Part 1] If we don’t learn to chill ... out!

[All] It’s getting too hot for monkeys,
It’s getting too hot for apes.
[Part 2] My baboon is starting to swoon
And my marmoset’s starting to sweat.

Mouth Trumpet!

[MOUTH TRUMPET SECTION  - Improvise your own!]

[Part 1]
 It’s getting too hot for monkeys,
It’s getting too hot for apes. (x4)
[Part 2] We’ll have whales swimming in Ipswich,
Boris Johnson will be snorkelling too,
Polar bears surfing in Tynemouth,
Posh Spice might just evaporate.

[All] It’s getting too hot for everyone.
Settle doon, ‘cos if we divn’t act soon,
We’re gonna have to move to the moon.
