David Byrne – Monkey Man lyrics

Back from the war
Covered in red, white and blue
So here I am
But I got nowhere to go

Heaven help you now
Heaven help you now

Monkey man
This is not garden of eden
Take a look
Who will eat and who gets eaten?

Saturday night
I'm gettin' outa my head
Who's laughin' now
You should be runnin' my friend

Heaven help us now
Heaven help us now

Monkey man
D. N. A. And evolution
Slide on down
Say goodbye civilization

A hundred miles an hour in my mind
And there you go
Outa control into the promised land
And down we go

Monkey man
Are we just some weird mutation?
Oh, my mind!
Lead me not into temptation

Like a snake
I will strike without a warnin'
Holy cow
Someone pinch me, am I dreamin'?

Monkey man
Let's get back to where we started
Slide on down
Evolution's goin' backwards
