Monkey Around

So your friends have been telling you, I'm out of my mind
Acting awful wild and weird
Shoutin' and screechin', bouncing off the walls
Swingin' from the chandelier

Yeah, I've been running through the neon jungle
I've been chasing every woman in town
When you make a man into a monkey
That monkey's gonna monkey around

Wait until you see my new girlfriend
I picked her up down at the zoo
She's got rings in her nose, glitter on her toes
And a very well placed tattoo

Now that I've been up on the high wire
You ain't never gonna get me down
You made a man into a monkey
Now the monkey's gonna monkey around

Once you had me dancin' at the end of your chain
Begging for your small change, love
I was jumpin' through hoops, doing loop-de-loops
But, girl, I've finally had enough

So when you see me out rocking in my little red hat
Going ape all over town
You made a man into a monkey
Now the monkey's gonna monkey around

Alright, one more time

Once you had me dancin' at the end of your chain
Begging for your small change, love
I was jumpin' through hoops, doing loop-de-loops
But, girl, I've finally had enough

So when you see me out rocking in my little red hat
Going ape all over town
You made a man into a monkey
Now the monkey's gonna monkey around

Yeah, you made a man into a monkey
Now the monkey's gonna monkey around
