My Monkey Is Missing

(Gene Miller)

MY MONKEY IS MISSING (By Lanny Sherwin) Verse 1: I’ve looked everywhere, where can he be, That rascally, runaway chimpanzee? He’s not in the closet; he’s not on the shelf, He knows I can’t go to sleep by myself. Chorus: My monkey is missing, and I’m so sad, ‘Cause he’s the best pal I ever had. He’s fuzzy and cuddly, tried and true, My monkey is missing, and I’m missing him, too. Verse 2: He’s not under the sofa, not in the toy sack, He’s not in the potty, thank goodness for that! The dog hasn’t chew him, he’s not in the car, Bedtime without him will be so hard. Chorus Bridge: Mom says I need to keep better track of him, But all that I feel is the lack of him. Wait just one minute – who’s that I see, Peeking from under my blankets and sheets? Chorus 2: My monkey’s not missing, and I’m so glad, ‘Cause he’s the best pal I ever had. He’s fuzzy and cuddly, tried and true, My monkey’s not missing, and that’s real good news. My monkey’s not missing, so this song is through. (Sherwin Communications, LLC/ASCAP)
