Monkey In The Middle

This song is by Chuck Prophet and appears on the album Age Of Miracles (2004).

"Give us a break.
We know you want to see him,
But let's not give him the feeling, uh
That all we are is curiosity seekers.
If you could fall back a little bit,
Give him a break, he's got a big job to do today."

Well I was born a little apple seed
No one seemed to notice me
Stealing kisses in the dark
From two sisters hard to tell apart
I was the monkey in the middle
But I never get caught

From the pump and dump to the bait and switch
I can do 'em all with the flick of a wrist
Even as a pup down on the farm
I never met a beast I couldn't charm
I was the monkey in the middle
And I never get caught
Yeah, I was the monkey in the middle
And I never get caught

Well St. Petersburg's a funky town
There's money to be made if you ask around
Microfilm, discotheques, cash in hand
And traveler's checks
I was the monkey in the middle
And I never got caught
Yeah, I was the monkey in the middle
And I never got caught

All right
And I never got caught
And I NEVER got caught
Ah... watch me now!

Well, Cleopatra ruled the Nile with an iron fist
Some folks they just couldn't handle it
They hunted down my river queen
Nobody laid a hand on me
I was the monkey in the middle
But I never got caught

She owned the heart of Egypt land
They say she died by her own hand
But it was a harmless game of truth or dare
She grabbed that snake and held it there
I was the monkey in the middle
And I never got caught

Yeah, I was the monkey in the middle
And I never got caught

All right
And I never got caught
And I NEVER got caught
And... watch me now!

Well, I came into this world unknown
I've seen so many good people come and go
But I got no gray hairs upon my head
And I kept my cool to the bitter end
I'm the monkey in the middle
And I never get caught

You let Jesus make your dying bed
Tell him I've got other plans instead
Take the Reaper off his rounds
I can shut my own light out
I'm the monkey in the middle
And I NEVER get caught

Yeah, I'm the monkey in the middle
And I never get caught.

Mr. Guitar Player!

"I guess it just be that way sometimes...
I guess it just be that way sometimes...
Ooh I guess it just be that way sometimes..."
