    The poem actually goes, “You look like a monkey / You smell like one too.” Kids today don’t know the good stuff.

    Some things never change. Girls not wanting that kind of attention unless its from the right guy.

    Verily, the old traditional ballads oft have many variants.

    In my day, “you look like a monkey and act like one too…”

    I believe that was the standard where I grew up although I have certainly heard all three variants here today.

    When I was growing up, it was “and you look like one too”. So that’s the one my kids and I sing to each other for our birthdays:

    Happy birthday to you
    You live in a zoo
    You smell like a monkey
    And you look like one too

    And then we laugh hysterically and loudly debate about who is the stinkiest. :-)
    (hey, I teach them all about many areas of culture… they also love The Andrews Sisters, MC Hammer, Patti Page, and Styx. We watch the Flintstones, Looney Tunes, I Love Lucy, Little House on the Prairie and The Cosby Show. Can’t say they aren’t “well-rounded” LOL!)

    This is the one I’m familiar with, too. Although I have heard the “look like one too” in my later years.

    I learned:
    Happy birthday to you
    You belong in a zoo
    You look like a monkey
    And you act like one too
