Preface

Primal chaos ruled the Worlds before Monkey.
Monkey was born of time, of Heaven and Earth,
of Sun and Moon, out of a stone egg.
He was irrepressable.

The place was like ancient China,
And the time might have been one thousand years ago,
And they fought and thought then as now.
Holy Tripitaka prayed,
One disciple Sandy was a fish spirit,
Pigsy, expelled from Heaven for greed, is the spirit of a pig.
He is changing. Evrything changes.
There is a horse, once a dragon, now in human form.
Monkey, Horse, Sandy, Pigsy and Tripitaka
are all upon a journey as long as life.

Introduction

Born from an egg on a mountain top,
Monkey is funky that ever popped,
He knew every magic trick under the sun,
Tease the Gods and everyone can have some fun.
Monkey magic, Monkey magic,
Monkey magic, Monkey magic,
Monkey magic, Monkey magic ooh!

Additional Verse

What a cocky, saucey Monkey this one is.
All the Gods were angry and they punished him.
Until he was saved by a kindly priest,
And that was the start of their pilgrimage quest.
Monkey magic, Monkey magic,
Monkey magic, Monkey magic,
Monkey magic, Monkey magic,
Monkey magic, Monkey magic ooh!

Credits

A new star's shining on an ancient story,
That can take your mind to new horizons.
Where laughter and adventure crosses borders
Of time and place to love and wisdom.

You'll find roads into your imagination,
That can stretch and open far and forever.
(You'll) See colors transcending even rainbows,
We have so much we can discover.
There's a star that's shining through the darkness.
(Shining holy and bright)
So follow that star that can guide us now.
(Oh so holy and bright)
Lighting childlike purity
In the dusty corners of our mind.
Holy, holy and bright,
A star is shining so holy and bright.
Holy, holy and bright,
Never let it go out of your sight.
(Gold and silver, star of wonder,
Ah-holy and bright.
Gold and silver, star of wonder,
Ah-out of your sight).
