DANIEL JOHNSTON


King Kong Lyrics

They shot him down

They shot him down

They thought he was a monster

But he was the king

They came to his island

And they brought her with them

They wanted to get his picture

But they were surprised by his enormous size

And when he saw the woman

He took her without question

Because after all

He was the king

And he loved the woman

He loved the way she looked

But she wouldn’t stop

Her screaming

But he loved the woman

And he fought a Tyrannosaurus Rex

It was a bloody battle

But he fought it for his woman

And he climbed up a mountain

And he looked around

Some kind of forest

With all those dinosaurs

And he stripped his woman

He stripped her bare

But there was a pterodactyl
There!

And then a hero

Came and took his woman

And they fell off the mountain

Into some water

And then later

He came looking for his woman

But they were waiting

And they threw a bomb

And they tied him

And they took him across the ocean

And they chained him

And put him in the show

But when he saw his woman

He broke loose

And everyone fled in terror

And he was looking for her

And he overturned the train

He was looking in the street

And then he found her in her apartment

And He climbed up the Empire State building

It was like a phallic Symbol

And he took his woman

To the top of that towering temple

And he climbed up and looked around

Some kind of city

With all those skyscrapers

And all the cars

Just him and his screaming woman

They were finally alone

He loved his woman

You could see it in his eyes

His great big eyes

He loved his woman

From the moment he saw her

He was all choked up inside

But when the airplanes came

He was soon to die

But he hung on long enough to set his woman down

And make sure

She was safe

And as the bullets pierced

He looked at her so sincere

Before he fell

Because he loved his woman

They shot him down

They shot him down

They thought he was a monster

But he was the king

Who killed the monkey

Who killed the monkey

‘Twas beauty

That killed the beast

And Willis O’Brien died

A tragic death

There wasn’t much

That he had left

And Ray Harryhousen said

That when Willis died

That’s when the king

Was really dead

They shot him down

They shot him down

They thought he was a monster

But he was the king

But he was the king

But he was the king

But he was the king
