Monkey Man

Lyrics:

monkey
All my friends are junkies
That’s not really true

I’m a cold Italian pizza
I could use a lemon squeezer
You could do?

Well, I’ve been bit and I’ve been tossed around
By every she-rat in this town
Have you, babe?

Well, I am just a monkey man
I’m glad you are a monkey woman too

bitten by a boar
I was gouged and I was gored
But I pulled on through

Yes, I’m a sack of broken eggs
I always have an unmade bed
Don’t you?

Well, I hope we’re not too messianic
Or a trifle too satanic
We love to play the blues

Well I am just a monkey man
I’m glad you are a monkey, monkey woman
Monkey woman too, babe!

I’m a monkey! I’m a monkey!
I’m a monkey man! I’m a monkey man!
I’m a monkey! I’m a monkey! I’m a monkey! I’m a monkey!
Monkey! monkey! monkey!
