Runnin' to-and-fro - hard workin' at the mill.
Never failed in the mail yet, come a rotten Bill!
Too much monkey business. Too much monkey business.
Too much monkey business for me to be involved in!

Salesman talkin' to me - tryin' to run me up a creek.
Says you can buy it, go on try it - you can pay me next
Week,
ahh!
Too much monkey business. Too much monkey business.
Too much monkey business for me to be involved in!

Blonde haired, good lookin' - tryin' to get me hooked.
Want me to marry - settle down - get a home - write a book!
Too much monkey business. Too much monkey business.
Too much monkey business for me to be involved in!

Same thing every day - gettin' up, goin' to school.
No need for me complainin' - my objection's overruled, ahh!
Too much monkey business. Too much monkey business.
Too much monkey business for me to be involved in!

Pay phone - something wrong - dime gone - will mail
Ought to sue the operator for telling me a tale - ahh!
Too much monkey business. Too much monkey business.
Too much monkey business for me to be involved in!

Been to Yokohama - been fightin' in the war.
Army bunk - Army chow - Army clothes - Army car, aah!
Too much monkey business. Too much monkey business.
Too much monkey business for me to be involved in!

Workin' in the fillin' station - too many tasks.
Wipe the windows - check the tires - check the oil - dollar
Gas!
Too much monkey business. Too much monkey business.
Don't want your botheration, get away, leave me!

TOO MUCH MONKEY BUSINESS FOR ME!!
