The Kung Fu Monkeys New York, New York

The Kung Fu Monkeys are a dream inside a reverie inside a biscuit inside the mind of a fly, playing lo-fi kiddie pop and bug beat music and traveling the globe by hot air balloon.

They released 13 7" eps and two digital eps. They also produced a full-length album, a live album/dvd, and a compilation cd of their first 11 eps. They also wrote some of the music for the Chris Gethard Show.

Track Name: Persephone Please
Heloise says
“Persephone please don’t be mad at me
For events that occurred in another song
This time I promise a sing along”
Heloise says
“Persephone please, we’re down on our knees
Whispering prayers to the underworld
To please the ears of a pretty girl”

And everybody swoons when they hear your name (calling Persephone)
And everybody loves the light you bring
So Persephone please join us now
Bring spring to our tiny town

Meanwhile an alter boy pleads
“God don’t be mad at me
For the things that I said to the crossing guard
For the things that I do when it’s after dark”
And in Chester Park Miss Cross sees the man with a beard of bees
He holds the queen bee between his teeth
He hopes that Miss Cross will stop to speak

And everybody swoons when they hear your name (calling Persephone)
And everybody loves the light you bring
So Persephone please join us now
Bring spring to our tiny town

Will she work her magic?
Will she plant a seed?
Between the librarian and the keeper of bees
Persephone Please?

And everybody swoons when they hear your name (calling Persephone)
And everybody loves the light you bring
So Persephone please join us now
Bring spring to our blighted town
