You can't imagine so many monkeys in the daily mail
An' all of them coming anonymously so they leave no trail
I never thought I'd have an admirer from overseas
But someone is sending me stationary filled with chimpanzees

Some chimps in swimsuits, some chimps are swinging from a vine
Some chimps in jackboots, some chimps that wish they could be mine
Star sky and hutch chimps, a chimp who's sitting on the can
A pair of dutch chimps who send their love from Amsterdam
Another postcard with chimpanzees and everyone is addressed to me
Another postcard with chimpanzees and everyone is addressed to me

If I had to guess, I'd say the monkey sender thinks it's great
He's sending me, maybe she's sending me just to see me get irate
I'm losing sleep and it's gonna be keeping me up all night
I thought it was funny, but now I've got money on a monkey fight

Some chimps in hard hats, chimps are working on a chain gang
Some chimps who love cats, burning rubber in a Mustang
A birthday wishing chimp, a chimp in black like a goth
A goin' fishin' chimp, a British chimp in the bath
Another postcard with chimpanzees and everyone is addressed to me
Another postcard with chimpanzees and everyone is addressed to me

Somehow they followed me even though I packed and moved my home
No matter what, they come and they come they won't leave me alone
Another monkey in the mail could make me lose my mind
But look at me shuffling through the stack until I finally find

Some chimps in swimsuits, some chimps in jackboots
Some chimps in hard hats, some chimps who love cats
I've got some shaved chimps, that's chimps devoid of any hair
I've got depraved chimps dressed up in women's underwear
Another postcard with chimpanzees and everyone is addressed to me

Everyone is, everyone is, everyone is addressed to me
Everyone is, everyone is, everyone is addressed to me
Another postcard with chimpanzees and everyone is addressed to me
Another postcard with chimpanzees and everyone is addressed to me
Another postcard with chimpanzees and everyone is addressed to me
Another postcard with chimpanzees and everyone is addressed to me
