Lyrics

There I was on the marquee, a-workin' for a livin', I've been gettin' instead of a-givin'. A-hangin' by my tail, a-waitin' for the dinner bell, Puttin' humans off. Every day, them fools rush in, And lay down my cage and watch them grin I put 'em all off, I'd hum a little song, An' watch 'em all go tee-hee. But I spell a P, a little bitty E. Sweet bop, bop, bop, sh-shoo, shoobie doobie doh, In a little round O. Now you add another P, a big skinny L, There's a-one more E, An' you got a people that looks like me.

Now a monkey don't have to go down town, An' ask for a job an' gettin' turned down. I'm mad at me, I could smash me, 'Cause I am a people. Now a monkey don't have to shoot an' speak, All he do is drink his fees. Oh, me, what luxury. But I'm a people. Now I spell a P, a little bitty E. Sweet bop, bop, bop, a-shoo, shoobie doobie doh, In a little round O. Now you add another P, a big skinny L, There's a-one more E, An' you got a creature that looks like me. Now if anyone knocked on my door today, There'd be a little sign says: "Gone away. "Down to the zoo, diggin' you know who, "'Cause I'm a people." Now I spell a P, a little bitty E. Sweet bop, bop, bop, sh-shoo, shoobie doobie doh, In a little round O. Now you add another P, a big skinny L, There's a-one more E, An' you got a creature that looks like me.
