image for Monkeys Chart success predicted A Future World statesman?

Monkeys are widely predicted to take over the world. We asked Pam Ayres for her opinion on the latest world music news.

Monkeys and Violins
Floated on the Stock Exchange
Before they were bought
For a Sherbet Dip, and a CD of
Les Dawson's Piano Songs
By a Man from Doncaster

The Doncaster Man formed
a string quartet.
A Monkey on 1st Violin.
Another Monkey on 2nd Violin.
A Hippo on Viola.
A Giraffe on Cello.

They became instant stars,
Appeared with famed South Yorkshire Man,
Michael Parkinson, and on the covers of Elle,
The Times, and Hello.

Musical differences took their toll.
The Monkeys lost their hair,
the Giraffe became depressed,
and the Hippo became clinically obese.

That 2nd Album syndrome kicked in,
the group went Techno,
performed a Duet with Bond,
even collaborated with Brother Beyond.

40 Years passed, they were given a critical re-appraisal,
and now the kids think they are cool.
A Monkey playing Violin was ahead of its time,
While a Monkey becoming famous for being lucky is a crime.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
