Lyrics[edit]

   Had a little monkey, sent him to the country
   And I fed him on gingerbread
   Along came a choo-choo, knocked my monkey koo-koo
   And now my monkey's dead
   This song is for you my monkey
   From me and my old friends
   
   Those are people who died, died
   Those are people who died, died
   Those are people who died, died
   They were all my friends, and they died
   
   Had a dad, big and strong
   Turned around, and I found my daddy gone
   This song is for you, from me and my old friends
   
   Those are people who died, died
   Those are people who died, died
   Those are people who died, died
   They were all my friends, and they died
