Matilda

I had a pet gorilla
And her name was Matilda
Matilda loved to sing songs every day
And this is what Matilda the Gorilla would say
She’d say…

Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ah, ah, ah
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ah, ah, ah
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ah, ah, ah
Ooh, ooh, ah, ah, ah

When we’d go strolling through the park
The people would laugh and the dogs would bark
They didn’t understand a word Matilda would sing
But Matilda was doing her gorilla thing
She’d go…
Chorus

So finally the circus man came along
And said, “Matilda, I know where you belong
We’ll put you in the circus to sing your song
And you can monkey around all day long”
And go…
Chorus

Matilda is as happy as she can be
She eats her bananas and swings from the trees
Now with her friends, you will see
The singing Matilda family
They go…
Chorus
