Lyrics

Hey, Monkeyman

Written By: Alastair Baker

There's this monkey
In a suit
and he don't like me he don't like the way i look
I try to ask him if there's something I can do
So he'll let me through

The monkey looks at me says
I'm sorry sir
if you wanted entry you should have watched what you wore
I try to tell him that the girl that i desire
waits for me inside

Chorus:

And I said hey, monkeyman
is there nothing I can do
is there nothing i can say
so you will let me through
hey, monkeyman
the girl that i adore
is sitting waiting for me
behind that door
and i want to see her tonight
that girl is out of sight

The monkey smiles at me says
can you move on
i'll have the cops on you
if you're not gone
and so i tell him if he doesn't let me pass
i'll kick his monkey ass

And I said hey, monkeyman
is there nothing I can do
is there nothing i can say
so you will let me through
hey, monkeyman
the girl that i adore
is sitting waiting for me
behind that door
and i want to see her tonight
that girl is out of sight

The monkey shakes and says
Don't want no fight
you just move on sir
if that's all right
and now i've ascertained the monkey's got no guts
i kick his monkey nuts

And I said hey, monkeyman
was there nothing I could do
was there nothing i could say
so you would let me through
hey, monkeyman
the girl that i adore
is sitting waiting for me
behind that door
and i want to see her tonight
that girl is out of sight
and i want to know that she's all right
Goodbye and goodnight
