Now folks, here's a story about a monkey and a crab,
The monkey treated him oh so bad,
But the crab paid him back,
Paid him back double.
The monkey threw a rotten fruit
Right on top of his head,
The crab he cried and cried and cried,
"I will get you back my friend."
The crab laying in his bed,
Whispered to his closest friends,
"It is my last wish,
Get that son of a bitch!"
The gun, the peanut, and the bee,
The angry, bitter three,
Sent that evil monkey,
Back up his tree.
The monkey came back in shame,
He told the crab he was to blame,
They hugged and became friends
And all was well in the end.
