MONKEY HILL by Scott Detweiler

Heard about a lady
Lives on St.Charles street
Got 17 pet monkeys
In a polka dot limosene
Every summer evening when the moon is filled
She talks em up to Monkey Hill

I’m not one for livin
All caged up in a zoo
All day chewin on bananas
Cause there ain’t nothin else to do
Wrote a letter to the lady and asked if she will
Take me up to Monkey Hill

The lady came to see me
After closing time
Said her monkey’s ran away from her
With 17 hot little monkey brides
So I said we should be married and that’s what we did
Got married on Monkey Hill

BIG CHIEF by Scott Detweiler

Big Chief got plenty of firewater
Louisiana settin sun, Big Chief day is done
Went to his wigwam, gonna womp til the morning come

Big Chief got plenty of firewater
Braves come from across the border with their squaws and daughters
Big Chief gave the order, now they drink that firewater

Big Chief got plenty of firewater
My mama said now “hey, you better do what the Big Chief say
Put the bows and arrows away, cause now it’s time to play

Big Chief got plenty of firewater
Big Chief day is done, Big Chief got em squaw
Went to his wigwam, gonna womp til the morning come
