Many years ago circa 1964, "Hit Parader" and "Song Hits" magazine printed the lyrics to many hits of the day, including Twist And Shout .  It showed an extra verse.  I don't recall the whole thing, but one line was about "a monkey in a tree".  The Beatles don't sing this verse nor do the Isley Brothers or any other version I am familiar with.  It is not shown in current lyrics websites nor mentioned on Wikipedia.

Is there anybody out there familiar with the history of this song?  Could you shed some light on this mystery verse?  Did it really exist in some version or is my memory faulty?  Maybe magazine goofed or confused it with another song.

Denk yo.

You are all my friends.
