Ookla The Mok – Me And My Monkey lyrics

I’m sad, hurt bad
Fell from a tree and skinned my knee
The other kids made fun and it made me mad

But it doesn’t matter to my monkey
It doesn’t matter, he still wants to hang out with me
It doesn’t matter to my monkey
If I can’t climb a tree

Baghdad, insurgency in Chad
No one’s to blame, it’s just the same
From the fruited plane to Leningrad

But it doesn’t matter to my monkey
It doesn’t matter cause he’s only a Chimpanzee
It doesn’t matter to my monkey
My monkey and me

Monkey see but monkey don’t care
And he’s got the right idea

My dad is mad
He said he’d ground me if he found me
Trying to sneak you from the lab
But I was bad and now I’m glad
I set him free cause he shared with me
His Chimpanzee philosophy
And this is what my monkey said to me:

I know a little white man
Little white does the best he can
I am a big black man
Well, not really, but pretend I am
Little White and Big Black meet
As they go walking down the street
Black wants rights and white wants fights
No matter who you try to blame
You all look the same to me

See, it doesn’t matter to my monkey
He doesn’t care is not his affair
Which way you lean politically
It doesn’t matter to my monkey
As long as he’s free
He’s free
