This song was inspired by a trip to see the rare black mountain gorillas of Rwanda (Sabyinyo group). This track has been featured on the Dr. Demento Show.


Be the gorilla my dreams; I would go ape over you
In our fine pajamas, I'd feed you bananas
Monkey see, monkey do - wouldn't you?
Be the gorilla my dreams; don't make a monkey of me
Swinging's our activity, free or in captivity
Be the gorilla my dreams

We've all got our place, so: your branch or mine?
Of all of my mates I know you'd be the prime
You'd be my prime-mate!


When you served me grub
Our new lub couldn't wait
I told all the jungle that you're chimply great
Chimply fantastic!



from Lady Liberty, released August 1, 2012
