Description
Recently the Japanese media reported a monkey had escaped from somewhere or other. The animal's whereabouts were witnessed at impossibly distant locations.

Unless it took the train.

Perhaps it can drive.

Lyrics
He was spotted around Asakasa throwing 'nanas at the gods. Seen climbing up old Fuji-san in pyjamas and clogs. Reported ogling the girls in uptown Shinjuku. Observed in Noda-shi practicing his ninjitsu.
He's a monkey and what monkey see, monkey do.
I'll tell you something, this primate really gets around.
That's monkey magic.
And no one really knows where he's going to go. He's a simian Marco Polo.
He was spotted around Roppongi trying to get a date. Seen hanging around Hachiko, waiting for his mates. Reported dutifully seeing famous shrines in Kyoto. Observed getting crushed in a train in downtown Tokyo.

Some good

....
He didn't fling poo? Time for a re-write. It's not a song about an escaped monkey if he doesn't fling poo.

Lyrics
Cool and smart story lyrics. Quirky song that befits the lyrics. Gives a me perhaps a classic Kinks vibe, mixed with some Toy Dolls. Feels like you're pushing the boundries of songwriting in some ways, while nodding to old school punk. Good stuff.

looking for a soul primate
or in this case, perhaps not... simply looking for a date. maybe the monkey will see another monkey just like him, and they will monkey-do happily ever after. it would reduce the flung banana peels all over the hakkone yamoto spas. :-)

Unfortunately
monkeys do look alike. So, it has to be more than one going about their monkey business. Very inventive. I love the way sing and your enunciation. No one can ever mistake a ste song. Thanks.

Elvis...
I think I just saw the monkey and Elvis together in Nara :-) Clever lyrics accentuated by the unusual rhythms and the almost punk approach to the vocals. Enjoyed. Regards, Peter.

Beatles influence is really prevalent. You have captured they sound so well. I think your vibe is born from the influence of the 60's, at least on this cut. Well done.

Wide monkey smiles
Not enough stuff in 3/4. And then the shuffle section. Lots of smiles and joy, capturing the feeling of fun and freedom. Thanks for sharing this. Go monkey! Stay free! (I'm afraid to ask how the story ends...)

After listening to your -'Heat' - I was prompted to check out another. This is also a very instant song and so well written. I love music to be entertaining and this is both. Great work.
