I got a coupe de ville
I got a bed in the house
Where you once lived.

I had a few cheap thrills
But they cost me a lot more
Than I could give.

I got a right
In this crazy world
To live my life
Like anyone else
How long can I
Carry this monkey around
All by myself.

If I can't have you
I don't want nothin' else
If I can't have you
I don't want nothin' else.

Well, I hit the wall
Woke up this mornin'
And I hit the wall.

Yeah, I hit the wall
Woke up this mornin'
And I hit the wall.

I got a right
In this crazy world
To live my life
Like anyone else
How long can I
Carry this monkey around
All by myself.

If I can't have you
I don't want nothin' else
If I can't have you
I don't want nothin' else.
