Aba Daba Honeymoon, The (1914)
(wm) Arthur Fields, Walter Donovan (RR) in the 1951 film: Two Weeks With Love by Debbie Reynolds & Carlton Carpenter
‘Way down in the Congo land lived a happy chimpanzee.
She loved a monkey with a long tail. Lordy, how she loved him!
Each night he would find her there swinging in the coconut tree.
And the monkey gay, at the break of day,
Loved to hear his Chimpie say:

Chorus: “Aba, daba, daba, daba, daba,daba, dab,”
Said the Chimpie to the Monk
“Baba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab,”
Said the Monkey to the Chimp
All night long they’d chatter away,
All day long they’re happy and gay,
Swinging and singing in their honky, tonky way.

“Aba, daba, daba, daba, daba, daba, dab,”
Means “Monk, I love but you.”
“Baba, daba, dab,” in monkey talk
Means “Chimp, I love you too.”
Then the big baboon, one night in June
He married them and very soon
They went upon their Aba Daba Honeymoon.
