Anders Knudsen – Monkey On My Back lyrics

I’ve got a monkey on my back
And a date with the devil
There’s a war inside my head
To keep me company

Gotta get this monkey off my back
Everything went up in smoke
And your life becomes a joke
When you chase the sunsets

The sky is clear
Everything comes my way

I went from riches to the rags
With a barrel fever
Ain’t got time for no romance
Nothing comes my way

The sky is clear
We’ll keep the rains at bay

Norman Maine
Norman Maine
Play the game
They're all the same
Norman Maine
Sing the refrain
Oh Norman Maine
Our hearts in vain

Norman Maine
Norman Maine
Shame’s the name
Of Norman Maine
Norman maine
Sing the refrain
Oh Norman Maine
My life’s in vain

Must get this monkey off my back
Gotta get this monkey off my back

When I get that monkey off my back
I’ll face the future
And he’s never to come back
My constant lover

The sky is clear
Everything comes my way
My mind is clear
Everything comes my way

When I get that monkey off my back
When I get that monkey off my back
