I'm coming down, coming down like a monkey
But it's alright
Like a load on your back that you can't see
Ooh, but it's alright

Try to shake it loose, cut it free
Just let it go, just get it away from me, oh

'Cause tonight, tonight, tonight
Oh, I'm gonna make it right
Tonight, tonight, tonight, oh

I'm going down, going down, like a monkey
Ooh, but it's alright
Try to pick yourself up, carry that weight that you can't see
Don't you know it's alright

It's like a helter skelter, going down and down
Round and round but just get it away from me, oh

Because tonight, tonight, tonight, oh
We're gonna make it right
Tonight, tonight, tonight, oh

I got some money in my pocket
About ready to burn
I don't remember where I got it
I gotta get it to you

So please answer the phone
'Cause I keep calling
But you're never home
What am I gonna do

But you keep telling me I've got everything
You say, I've got everything I want
You keep telling me you're gonna help me
You're gonna help me, but you don't

But now I'm in too deep
You see it's got me so that I just can't sleep
Ooh, get me out of here, please get me out of here
Just help me I'll do anything, anything
You just help, get me out of here

Tonight, oh
Oh, I'm gonna make it right
Tonight, tonight, tonight, oh

Tonight, tonight, tonight, oh
Tonight, tonight, tonight, oh
Tonight, tonight, tonight, oh
Tonight, tonight, tonight, oh
