13th Floor Elevators – Monkey Island lyrics
Living home on monkey island, baby
Right in the middle of a zoo
Living home on monkey island, baby
Pretend to be a monkey too

Well, here I am on monkey island
Hiding behind a rock
I'm all dressed up with my monkey suit
Pretending to be something I'm not

Living home on monkey island, baby
Right in the middle of a zoo
Living home on monkey island, baby
Pretend to be a monkey too

Well there's one thing about these monkeys, baby
They don't know I'm around
But that's pretty good 'cause if they knew
They'll probably come and put me down

Living home on monkey island, baby
Right in the middle of a zoo
Living home on monkey island, baby
Pretend to be a monkey too

With my paisley tie and my one button suit
I'm about as close as I can get
I guess I must be doing okay
'Cause they haven't come and got me yet

Living home on monkey island, baby
Right in the middle of a zoo
Living home on monkey island, baby
Pretend to be a monkey too
