I had a pet gorilla
And her name, she was a-Matilda
Matilda loved to sing songs every day
And this is what gorilla Matilda would say


Ah-ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ah, ah, ah
Ah-ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ah, ah, ah
Ah-ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ah, ah, ah
Ooh-ooh-ah, ooh, ooh, ah-ah, ah

So we'd go a-strolling through the park
The people would laugh and the dogs would bark
They never understood a word Matilda would sing
But Matilda was a doing her gorilla thing

(Repeat Chorus)

So finally the circus man came along
He said, "Matilda, I know where you belong
We'll put you in the circus to sing your songs
And you'll be monkeying around all day long"

(Repeat Chorus)

Matilda was as happy as could be
She'd eat her banannas and swing from the trees
Now with her friends, you will see
The singing Matilda family

(Repeat Chorus)
