Brilliant!! Well played Uncle John! That sure got my day off to a happy start, nice one.

However.....I have to say that in my case I don't have to wait 'till I get old.......!!! Ha!

All the best,

Ya, it takes nerve even to do it to a younger crowd. But it gets good mid song. The laughs start. Nursing home.. Maybe not!
Comment by Uncle John on July 12, 2017 at 8:07am

Yup, Darryl.  I know what you mean!   This getting old is not for monkeys.

Thanks, Jeff. 

Dave, ha, and good verses.  I am back to healthy and playing at nursing homes 3-4 times a month.  I have not yet had the nerve to do the song there.

Nice version there Uncle. I've been doing the same song lately. Everyone relates to it. I always get it requested at our gatherings. It's coming true... I wrote a few new verses: I can tell when you dance, you got a tail hangin in your pants. I can tell by your carbuncle, your paw was a monkey's uncle. I can tell by your nose you're pure monkey down to your toes. I can tell by your brother that your ma was a monkey mother. You're gonna look like a monkey when you get old.

I feel this was personally written for me U John, but you forgot to mention the new things every week that stop working , or working as well as they did
