The Signifyin' Monkey told the lion one day
"There's a bad motherfucker comin' down your way
He talks about your momma and your sister Lou
He talks about how good yo' gran'ma screw
He talk about your uncle and your sissy brother Joe
Say he think you eats pussy, but he wasn't fo' sho'"
The lion took off like a mighty breeze,
Knockin' coconuts down an' giraffes to their knees.
He came upon the elephant an'said "Hey motherfucker I heard some shit about you,
An' all the bad things you s'posed to do"
The Elephant looked at the lion out the corner of his eyes
An said "Please Mr. Lion, go pick on someone your size."
The lion got up an' made a fancy pass,
An the Elephant knocked him square on his ass.
The Lion roared an' swung up from the ground
An' The elephant knocked his big ass right back down.
Well, the lion come back more dead than alive
An' that's when the monkey really started to jive.
He said "I thought you was called the Jungle King,
But I just found out you ain't a goddamn thing.
My ol' lady told me before you left
I could prob'ly kick your ass all by myself."
The monkey started laughin' an' jumpin up an' down,
An' his foot missed the limb, and his ass hit the ground.
Like a strike of lightn'in an' a ball of heat
The lion was on the monkey with all four feet.
Monkey said "Please Mr. Lion, let my nuts off the sand
An' I'll stand up and fight you like a nach'el man."
The lion jumped back all ready to fight
And the monkey yelled "Bye, Motherfucker!" and ran dead out of sight.
