Final lyrics


Amanda Fleur OBA


Think busy, busy weeks and a holiday. Manfred was lagging behind. And with a new holiday on the horizon, we decided to spend a Sunday afternoon on the roofterrace of Amsterdam’s Central Public Library settling on the final storyboard.

And image was demanding! We could make a nice visual connection between two couplets that were initially separated. So we stuck those together. Then we felt the opening B couplet wasn’t so strong anymore. So I wrote a new one. Manfred is turning more philosophical by the minute:  Shake of the chains of expectations / In Plato’s Cave we’re all just animations. O yes.

And below the lyrics as they stand. Full storyboard coming up asap.

 

Manfred the Monkey

Manfred the monkey

enlighten me

how come you are that happy

energetic and free

 

Manfred the monkey tell me

what’s the key

to being jolly jumpy jazzy

You know what I mean

 

Shake of the chains

of expectations

In Plato’s Cave we’re all

just animations

 

Respect all that lives

apart from that mosquito

be the one that always gives

and do it incognito

 

Never start a fight

too complex

and always always always have a lot of

…fruit

 

Chase whatever you’re

dreaming of

and love love love love

loooooove

 

Yet, you’re doomed to fail

without a tail!
