about

Co-written with band mate Fred "Toots" McNaughton... 42 Monkeys is a favorite for all ages. At the end of this track you will hear the a bit of awkward silence as Steven pretends to sing the lyrics. Funny enough... a child "meows" like a cat and everyone gets a chuckle out it! You'll hear a few other references to this "meow" as the show progresses!

lyrics

42 monkeys tried to steal my mom!
They tried to take her to the monkey prom
Dad said "no!" sticking out his chin
42 monkeys looked around again

42 monkeys tried to steal my bike
They told me to take a long, long hike
Joey said "no!" pulling at their tails
42 monkeys, 2 boys, who fails?

They said- ooh, ahh,ooh ooh ahh!

42 monkeys tried to steal my brain
Thought they'd leave it out in the rain
Momma said "no!" with a frightful shout
42 monkeys…they are bumming out

They said- ooh, ahh,ooh ooh ahh!

42 monkeys tried to steal my bike!
They tried to steal my brain!
They tried to steal my mom!

42 monkeys tried to steal my bench
They loosened those bolts with a monkey wrench!
When I roared "no!" they trembled in fear
42 monkeys all disappear

42 monkeys all disappear
42 monkeys they're out of here
42 monkeys all disappear
42 monkeys they're out of here
42 monkeys all disappear they're out of here!

They said- ooh, ahh,ooh ooh ahh!
