  • Lyrics: HEAR NO EVIL SEE NO EVIL SPEAK NO EVIL HEAR NO EVIL SEE NO EVIL SPEAK NO EVIL VERSE one: There once was a King of the monkeys. He saw a beautiful sight. He was a golden moon shining in the pond one night. He said to himself: “I want that for my own But I’m gonna need some help If I’m gonna take it home. Chorus: Monkey see, monkey do, Monkey gonna be trouble for you If you follow that fool the king of them all, You better watch out ‘cause you’ll have a fall. VERSE two: He called the other monkeys to come and lend a hand, To get that golden moon and be the richest in all the land. The monkeys came from near and far and listened to his plan: “Together they’d make a chain, by joining tail to hand.” (Chorus) VERSE three: The first monkey held the tree. The others fell in line. Together they made a chain, on which that old King climbed. The Monkey King reached for that moon, the first to touch the gold. But he fell down in the water, now the story’s told. (Chorus) HEAR NO EVIL SEE NO EVIL SPEAK NO EVIL VERSE four: Now you’ve heard the story, I’ll tell you one more thing: Don’t be like those monkeys who followed a foolish King. If you follow a fool you are a fool, be you monkey or you man. Think for yourself first, that’s the very best plan.
