I didn’t believe what they told me
No it just didn’t seem to make sense
But when I showed up he approached me
I had no more argument

They said he was from the Sahara
Approximately 20 years old
In a tux with some gel in his hair-a
‘Bout five feet tall head to toe

Now the moment I got on the scene
I regretted not bringing some backup
But he walked up and stood next to me
He told me a joke and we cracked up

And it turns out he’s quite a good fellow
Well versed in his renaissance authors
So what if he’s Crimson and I’m blue and yellow
I can’t knock a chimp who’s a doctor
