The Monkey was originally taught at a Paradise Islanders Instructional in early 1990, and soon became a standard Alvechurch dance in its original form, without the Tree Tops or the Cotswold Hey. These were added during 1997 to give the dance more depth.
The Monkey Song.
Well I Never!
Did You Ever!
See A Monkey Dressed In Leather!
And Leather Nose!
And Leather Britches To His Toes!
