1904 sheet music cover.

In Zanzibar great land of glory
A monkey Czar so runs the story
Came from afar with love o'er laden
To win and woo a monkey maiden
with twang Darwinian
Sang this opinion.

My little Chimpanzee
you're all this world to me
A branch I'll find for thee
in my own fam'ly tree
No monkey shine for me
A wedding fine there'll be
In high society
In Zanzibar.

In Zanzibar's great cocoanut castle
Hail to the Czar each monkey vassal
Great King Gazoo my great ancestor
Sang to his bride as he caressed her
with chin bone chattering
His Panzie flattering.

My little Chimpanzee
you're all this world to me
A branch I'll find for thee
in my own fam'ly tree
No monkey shine for me
A wedding fine there'll be
In high society
In Zanzibar.
