The Uákari

Uákari, my pet, my pup
You really need to act,
With such delightful makeup
Success is yours, in fact.

You’ll dance and prance
You’ll ape, pose, mimic,
On merit only you’ll advance
No need have you of gimmick.

Uákari, my doll, my dear,
Go on the stage, and play!
No qualm, no doubt, no fear
You’ll wow them all on Broadway.

You’ll be a star, you’ll be a hit
And Oscars you’ll attract;
All will applaud, and will admit:
“That monkey sure can act!”
