As the filking season seems to be upon us again....

I find it hard to believe this hasn't been done already, but a cursory search on Deja for "Monkey, filk and librarian" seems to indicate it hasn't, ho hum.

Librarians Theme (to the tune of The Monkees' Theme)

Here he comes
Swingin' through the shelves
But one thing you should know now,
For the good of your health

Hey, he's not a monkey
Don't say that when he is around
Those arms are good for more than swingin'
And he'll soon put you down.

He goes where ever he wants to
By movin' through L-space
He's an ape with a badge, yeah
So don't get in his face

Hey, he's not a monkey
Don't say that when he is around
Those arms are good for more than swingin'
And he'll soon put you down.

He's usually friendly
So don't be put out by his shape
And don't go using the "M" word
Unless you want to see him go ape!

Any tome
Or any book
Just look over your shoulder
When you hear that "ook!"

Hey, he's not a monkey
Don't say that when he is around
Those arms are good for more than swingin'
And he'll soon put you down.

( instrumental break)

Hey, he's not a monkey
Don't say that when he is around
Those arms are good for more than swingin'
And he'll soon put you down.

He's usually friendly
So don't be put out by his shape
And don't go using the "M" word
Unless you want to see him go ape!

Hey he's not a monkey! No he's not a monkey! Me? I never said "monkey"!
Oh .. ~@#$!*
