How to Beat a Monkey at Chess - Lyric Photo Shoot
I'll play safe, and wait for an opportunity
I won't let that cheeky monkey make a monkey out of me!
"You've got to be kidding me...."
"Hey Carter! Whatcha up to?"
"Chess with a monkey, huh?"
"Need any help?"
"Thanks, but I think I can beat one little monkey."
"How much time do you got?"
"Well, lucky for you, your old friend Grace just so happens to be a three time state champ at chess,"
"They used to call me "The Saving Grace" of chess."
"That is so bad...."
Wait now! Don't take it! That monkey's set a trap!
He wants me to take it?
He thinks you're quite a sap
But check out this Bishop
You'll take his piece for free!
And that monkey's got no chance to make a monkey out of me!
"Three time state champ huh?"
"Hey! In my defense, I've never played a board I haven't strategized from the very start before."
"Alright, kids! Playtime is over!"
"Is that Addy Walker, President of the All Doll'd Up chess club?"
"That is my title!"
"Look y'all, I think I got this, okay?"
"You do now...."
Let's set a gambit,
we'll take him by surprise!
Not really an option
He took like....
Half my guys
Let's send in the big guns and force his King to flee
So that monkey doesn't further make a monkey out of me!
"Whelp, that's all I got...."
"But you're the President of a chess club?"
"Yeah well, the title didn't come with a guarantee win against a monkey, y'all!"
"Plus I've always been better at organizing groups than playing chess."
"Maybe we should just let the monkey win?"
"No! It's okay, I appreciate it. But I really, TRULY, do not need anyone's help-"
"HELP?! Did somebody need help?!"
"Oh my gosh really???"
"Woah Molly!! I didn't know you knew how to play!"
"No we all know she doesn't please everyone-"
"Oh sweet is that a monkey?!?"
"No Molly, it's a hairy octopus."
"Guys! I can translate! I'm fluent in Monkey!"
"Molly, I know you're trying to help but I'm pretty sure that's imposs-"
"No no, do you know what? Sure! Fine! Why don't we try it?"
OOOO OOO OO AH AH AAAAHH!!
(Hello, a Monkey! I talk in language well!)
AHHHHH OOO AHHHHH!!
(Are playing a chess you? Your is very swell!)
EEEE EEE AH!!
(My win wants to friend you,)
OOOO AHHH EE EEE EEE?!
(So loser will you be?)
"I'm pretty sure it's our turn....."
"We are representatives of humanity!"
"Against a monkey!"
"How long have we been oppressed?"
"3/4th's of a blog post and almost a whole musical number?"
"Well no more! NO LONGER! We've been under the monkey's thumb for too long!"
"We can beat this monkey!"
"For our fathers..."
"For our forefathers!"
"For your presidency!"
"For Saving Grace!"
"For your absolute zero experience and no business even being here!"
"A billion monkeys and a typewriter may be able to write Shakespeare, but one monkey will not beat us today."
"I may ramble, and not know what I'm taking about all the time"
"But we can win.... Together, as one!"
One of these pieces...
Has got to do the trick!
But how can we beat him?
I'd recommend a stick
But I think we made a monkey out of-
Completely made a monkey out of-
We finally didn't let a monkey-
Make a monkey
Out of us!
"Huh, ummmmmm.... Huh."
"Well that was an experience..."
"Yeah... I'll help you clean up."
How to Beat a Monkey at Chess
Guys.... First off, I'm so sorry this didn't get posted yesterday! There were fire evacuations where my grandma and sister's family live and we had to get out the door quickly to go help. Everyone is okay now and I really did try to get this out last night but I just couldn't get it all together :( Second, y'all wouldn't believe how incredibly bad the internet is here lol! XD There are literally fires everywhere in my state and the smoke in the air is causing so many connection problems, I've literally been working on this nonstop since 10:30 am (it's almost 7:00 pm when I'm writing this) because each picture took about 10 minutes to upload..... Ya'll, there are so many pictures in this lol!! It was pretty excruciating to say the least, but I really hope you enjoy this one even though it's late and a bit different! I first heard this song last year while babysitting (I can't remember if I've told y'all yet, so for those of you who didn't know I'm the babysitter of my favorite little dude, my nephew :)), Oliver was taking his nap and I was the only one home, so I was just hanging out in the front room looking for something to watch. While scrolling through YouTube suggestions this video popped up. Now let me tell you guys something about me, if it looks weird, I'm 100% in, How to Beat a Monkey at Chess? I could not have clicked it faster. So I'm watching it, and it's pretty much as weird as I thought it was going to be, then suddenly I hear someone cracking up. Startled, I look up to see my year old nephew who barely is able to stand at this age, wide awake and losing his mind over this song. It honestly made this weird song that much more memorable and I knew at some point I had to make a post based off it. And really did the "I am fluent in monkey!" thing have Molly written all over it or what? XD Anyhoo, I talk way too much lol! XD Hope you all enjoy this post!
