Another Postcard

Charted: 82
  • You can't imagine so many monkeys in the daily mail
    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.
    Starsky 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 every one 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 a-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 every one 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 every one is addressed to me
    Every one is addressed to me
    Another postcard with chimpanzees
    And every one is addressed to me. Writer/s: Ed Robertson, Steven Page

  • Marissa from Akron, OhIs this really based on a true story? That's kind of awesome.
  • Zac from Grawn, MiI would have to agree, this song is so random it's funny. I also think Pinch Me is a good song by them, but it's not on here yet.
