Wish to know peace know it’s no lie
start with cloth ears and button eyes
Those monkeys three they know the score
they’ll see, hear, speak evil no more
But every day becomes more clear
sweet ignorance we value dear
Those who hold torch of truth and light
too frequently treated as blight

Can’t hear, can’t see, thought’d bring world peace
but still somehow our tongues don’t cease
Our forked tongues wag in rants and rails
as teeth, tongue, lips others assail
It’s status quo to just complain
as the response of human beings
A zippered mouth seems need to add
with a padlock that’s ironclad

Then only time mouth’d be unzipped
when nourishment passes through lips
Trio monkeys, with their hands crossed
should beat forked tongues and lying dross
Can’t hear, can’t see, thought’d bring world peace
but still somehow our tongues don’t cease
Our forked tongues wag in rants and rails
as teeth, tongue, lips others assail
