Michael Franks – Monkey See - Monkey Do lyrics

Love has locked us up, peaches,
Locked inside this zoo,
Your bananas get thrown at me
And mine get thrown at you.
Ev'ry night we fuss and fight
Like me and you know who,
I guess love is always just:

Love is monkey see and monkey do, (that's all it is, peaches)
Love is monkey see and monkey do, (would I lie to you?)
Love is monkey see and monkey do, (that's all it is, peaches)
Love is monkey see and monkey do.

Do you want my love, peaches?
Do you want my rage?
Or do you merely like to see me shake my cage?
Your papayas get thrown at me
And mine get thrown at you,
I guess love is always just:

Love is monkey see and monkey do, (that's all it is, peaches)
Love is monkey see and monkey do, (would I lie to you?)
Love is monkey see and monkey do, (that's all it is, peaches)
Love is monkey see and monkey do.

You won't let me near you, peaches,
But one day you will.
Gonna jump up and stumble and eat all the jungle
Until I've had my fill.
Then you'll know the truth, peaches,
One and one ain't two,
One and one is one and love is:

Love is monkey see and monkey do, (that's all it is, peaches)
Love is monkey see and monkey do,
Would I lie to you? (would I lie to you, baby?)
Love is monkey see and monkey do, (that's all it is, peaches)
Love is monkey see and monkey do. (love is, love is)

Love is monkey see and monkey do, (that's all it is, peaches)
Love is monkey see and monkey do,
Would I lie to you? (would I lie to you, baby?)
Love is monkey see and monkey do, (that's all it is, peaches)
Love is monkey see and monkey do
