Down in jungle town, a honeymoon is coming soon.
You can hear the serenade of a pretty little monkey maid.
And in monkey land, a chimpanzee climbed up a tree.
Oh, he'll be true to monkey-doodle-doo way down in jungle town.

Yabba dabba dabba dabba dabba dabba dabba,
said the monkey to the chimp.
Yabba dabba dabba dabba dabba dabba dabba,
said the chimpy to the monk.
All day long they'd sing and play.
All night long they'd frolic away.
Singing and swinging in a honky-tonky way.

Yabba dabba dabba in monkey talk means, chimp, do I love you.
Yabba dabba dabba in chimpanzee means, monk, I love you too.
One night in June, the big babboon, he married them, and very soon,
they went upon their yabba dabba honeymoo-oo-oo-oon.
They went upong their yabba dabba honeymoon.
