"Hockey Monkey" is a song co-written and co-performed by James Kochalka (under his stage name Jimminy Kroekel) and Connecticut-based indie rock band The Zambonis in 1997. A music video for the song was featured in the episode "You May Already Be a...KaBlammer!" on the Nickelodeon animated sketch comedy series KaBlam!.

A spiritual successor, "Hockey Monkey Mash," was released in October 2020.

Synopsis

A group of adults are in search of a monkey. Unbeknownst to them, the monkey plays ice hockey with a group of kids.

Lyrics

All the scientists are running around,
Looking for the monkey but he can't be found,
'Cause he's down by the pond playing hockey with the kids.

And all the mothers are running around,
Looking for their children but they can't be found,
'Cause they're down by the pond playing hockey with the monkey.

And it's 1! 2! 3!
The kids love the monkey,
And 4! 5! 6!
The monkey's got a hockey stick,
7! 8! 9!
Havin' a good time, yeah!

National guard is running around,
Looking for the monkey but he can't be found,
'Cause he's down by the pond playing hockey with the kids.
And all the teachers are running around,
Looking for the children but they can't be found,
'Cause they're down by the pond playing hockey with the monkey.

And it's 1! 2! 3!
The kids love the monkey,
And 4! 5! 6!
The monkey's got a hockey stick,
7! 8! 9!
Havin' a good time, yeah!

It's 1! 2! 3!
The kids love the monkey,
And 4! 5! 6!
The monkey's got a hockey stick,
7! 8! 9!
Havin' a good time, yeah!
