He been spreadin this new dance all around
And in just a matter of a few days

The people see him dancin they begin to see
See this cat do that monkey thing
It's really something to see
This cat named Mickey's doin that monkey

C'mon and do the Mickey's monkey
Children, let's do the Mickey's monkey
Let's do the Mickey's monkey
Children, let's do the Mickey's monkey
