Shock the Monkey
Cover me, when I run
Cover me, through the fire
Something knocked me out the trees
Now I'm on my knees
Cover me, darling please

Hey-ay... Monkey, (Monkey), Monkey...
Don't you know?
You gotta' shock the monkey, hey, hey!

Fox the fox - Rat on the rat
You can ape the ape - I know about that

There is one thing you must be sure of,
I can't take any more,
Darling, don't you monkey with the monkey

...Shock the monkey ...Hey-ay, monkey

Wheels keep turning (Monkey!)
Something's burning (Monkey!)
Don't like it, but I guess I'm learning...
Shock!
Shock!
Shock!
...Watch the monkey get hurt,
(Monkey!) Shock!

Cover me, when I sleep
Cover me, when I breathe
You throw your pearls before the swine
Make the monkey blind
Cover me, darling please

Hey-ay... Monkey
Too much at stake (Monkey!)
Ground beneath me shake (Monkey!)
And the news is breaking...
Shock!
Shock!
Shock!
Shock!
