Mona, I need you
Mona, ooo-ooo, Mona
Yeah! Yeah-yeah-yeah!
Ooh-ooo-ooo, Mona

Tell ya Mona, what I wanna do
Get-a my house a-next door to you
Can I see you sometime?
A-we could go kissin' through the blind

Can you come out in the front do'?
Listen to my heart go bumpbity-bump
I'll lead you baby, that's no lie
Without your love I will surely die

Hey-ay, Mona
Ooo-ooo, Mona
Hey! Whoa-oh, whoa-ooh, Mona
Hey-aay! Mona


Hey-Hey-aay, Mona
Ooh-ooh, Mona

Can you come out on the front?
Listen to my heart go bumpity-bump
Hey little baby, that's no lie
Without your love I will surely die.

(Guitar to end)
