The Transplant Calypso
By Jeremy Taylor

Transcribed by Kevin Hanssen

          A chord diagramG+G                  A chord diagramD MajorD
The other day I was feeling ill
               A chord diagramA augmentedA                  A chord diagramD MajorD
I went to the doctor to get some pills
      A chord diagramG+G               A chord diagramD MajorD
He looked at me in despair
                       A chord diagramA augmentedA                 A chord diagramD MajorD
Said my friend you’re badly in need of repair
             A chord diagramG+G             A chord diagramD MajorD
Now with his up to date surgery
                 A chord diagramA augmentedA                    A chord diagramD MajorD
We get our spare parts from the menagerie
               A chord diagramG+G                A chord diagramD MajorD
So if you’ll kindly sit down a while
               A chord diagramA augmentedA               A chord diagramD MajorD
I’ll just telephone for a crocodile


CHORUS
               A chord diagramG+G
Soon I had the heart of an ape
     A chord diagramD MajorD
The liver of a chicken
       A chord diagramA augmentedA                      A chord diagramD MajorD
The blood of an ox through a tube which they’re stickin’
      A chord diagramG+G                               A chord diagramD MajorD
To my spleen which I borrowed from a cow
            A chord diagramA augmentedA                     A chord diagramD MajorD
I was human once but I’m not sure now.

A chord diagramG+G                     A chord diagramD MajorD
    Going out one night
                 A chord diagramA augmentedA             A chord diagramD MajorD
Me and a fella      got into a fight
                    A chord diagramG+G
I hit him with the left
                A chord diagramD MajorD
I hit with the right
               A chord diagramA augmentedA                        A chord diagramD MajorD
But somehow I just couldn’t finish the fight
                  A chord diagramG+G                    A chord diagramD MajorD
No matter what I did he kept coming at me
                A chord diagramA augmentedA              A chord diagramD MajorD
The stubbornest man I ever did see
           A chord diagramG+G                  A chord diagramD MajorD
It was in vain I find out at last
                       A chord diagramA augmentedA                  A chord diagramD MajorD
This fella’s got the      jaw bone of an ass

              A chord diagramG+G
I’ve got the heart of an ape etc


A chord diagramG+G                      A chord diagramD MajorD
     Walking down the street
                A chord diagramA augmentedA                  A chord diagramD MajorD
me girlfriend       I happened to meet
     A chord diagramG+G                    A chord diagramD MajorD
Me heart went bong-diddy-bong
              A chord diagramA augmentedA                 A chord diagramD MajorD
Just like the ape that I got it from
            A chord diagramG+G
Me ox blood boiled
             A chord diagramD MajorD
I started to moo
                     A chord diagramA augmentedA                        A chord diagramD MajorD
I was pawing at the ground, what else could I do
         A chord diagramG+G                 A chord diagramD MajorD
When at last she walked on by
                      A chord diagramA augmentedA                  A chord diagramD MajorD
I said cockle-doodle-doo and started to fly


              A chord diagramG+G
I’ve got the heart of an ape etc


(The last verse is looser and spoken-like; think country and western with a Carribean lilt)

        A chord diagramG+G                    A chord diagramD MajorD
In the end I was getting fed up
                      A chord diagramA augmentedA                     A chord diagramD MajorD
Said to the doctor, “Look man, I’ve had enough,
         A chord diagramG+G                 A chord diagramD MajorD
All this animal junk won’t do
                         A chord diagramA augmentedA                     A chord diagramD MajorD
Give me some organ that doesn’t come out of the zoo.”
                A chord diagramG+G                      A chord diagramD MajorD
He said “Well,     how about this for size.”
                     A chord diagramA augmentedA                 A chord diagramD MajorD
I tell you, I could hardly believe me eyes
                   A chord diagramG+G                      A chord diagramD MajorD
I looked at this thing with dismay and suspicion,
            A chord diagramA augmentedA                  A chord diagramD MajorD
I t was the brain of a politician.

                    A chord diagramG+G
I’d rather have the heart of an ape etc
