Paul McCartney – Monkberry Moon Delight lyrics
So I sat in the attic,
A piano at my nose,
And the wind played a dreadful cantata (cantata...).

Sore was I from the crack of an enemy's hose,
And the horrible sound of tomato (tomato...).

Ketchup (ketchup)
Soup and puree (soup and puree),
Don't get left behind (get left behind)...

When a rattle of rats had awoken,
The sinews, the nerves and the veins.
My piano was boldly outspoken, in attempts to repeat its refrain.

So I stood with a knot in my stomach,
And I gazed at that terrible sight
Of two youngsters concealed in a barrel,
Sucking monkberry moon delight.

Monkberry moon delight,
Monkberry moon delight.

Well, I know my banana is older than the rest,
And my hair is a tangled beretta.
When I leave my pajamas to billy budapest,
And I don't get the gist of your letter (your letter...).

Catch up! (catch up),
Cats and kittens (cats and kittens),
Don't get left behind (get left behind)...

Monkberry moon delight...
Monkberry moon delight...

Monkberry Moon Delight meanings

  • U
    It's about his kids getting in the ice cream and baby food when they should be in bed. Dad's working on the piano when he hears them in the kitchen with their "heads in a barrel" of ice cream. When he takes it away the start screaming for their "monkberry moon delight" hysterically screaming for it like it was medicine hence the half crazed repeating on the title lyric.
    He's making fun of and imitating his kids. The song is hilarious to any parent.
