The Specials – Monkey Man lyrics
This one's for the bouncers.
Big, big... Monkey Man!

Aye aye aye, aye aye aye!
Tell you baby,
You huggin up the big monkey man
Aye aye aye, aye aye aye!
Tell you baby,
You huggin up the big monkey man

I never saw you, I only heard of you
Huggin up the big monkey man
I never saw you, I only heard of you
Huggin up the big monkey man

It's no lie, it's no lie
Them a tell me,
You huggin up the big monkey man
It's no lie, it's no lie
Them a tell me,
You huggin up the big monkey man

Now I know that, now I understand
You're turning a monkey on me
Now I know that, now I understand
You're turning a monkey on me

Aye aye aye, aye aye aye!
Tell you baby,
You huggin up the big monkey man
Aye aye aye, aye aye aye!
Tell you baby,
You huggin up the big monkey man

I was on my way to Banbury Cross,
Then I see a monkey upon a white horse
With rings on he fingers, bells on him toes
Sing a little song, wherever he be
Cause he's a monkey, cause he's a monkey
Cause he's a weedy little monkey man

Aye aye aye, aye aye aye!
Tell you baby,
You huggin up the big monkey man
Aye aye aye, aye aye aye!
Tell you baby,
You huggin up the big monkey man
