lyrics

Let me tell you all about the interesting plant life in your skull
B – E B – E B – E B – E
And when the lights are out, in the places you can’t see it grows
A — D A – D A – D A – D
Feeding upon your dreams producing paisley leaves
G – C G – C F#

Let me tell you all about the interesting creatures in your skull
A strange menagerie, that feeds upon the paisley leaves that grow
Where the jungle begins, beyond all consciousness

Let me introduce you to the zookeeper who lives inside your skull
A master of bestiaries, he keeps all of the creatures in control
Gathering their droppings, for fertilizing dreams

And let me tell you all about the interesting plant life in your skull
And when the lights are out, in the places you can’t see it grows
Feeding upon your dreams producing paisley leaves…

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.
