​Everybody's Got the Monkey

This song is by David Lee Roth and appears on the album Your Filthy Little Mouth (1994).

Original video
From L.A. to New York, London, and Moscow
The monkey is screamin', he's spreading his spell
The monkey be God and make you beg on your knees
You'll be jonesin' for somethin' to make you well

Everybody's got the monkey
Hear the sub or human kind
Everybody got the monkey
You got yours and I got mine

He's hungry for wealth, he's hungry for power
He make you so numb and cold to the core
The hunger of love, the hunger of lust
Make you crave the very thing you try to ignore

Everybody's got the monkey
Hear the sub or human kind
Everybody got the monkey
You got yours and I got mine

Everybody's got the monkey
In his head or on his back
Everybody got the monkey
What I say is a simple fact

Homos and heteros
Junkies and juicers
Pyschos and users
Abusers and losers
From problem brokers
To TV viewers
There's a monkey for every man
Mom and dad

Everybody's got the monkey
Hear the sub or human kind
Everybody got the monkey
You got yours and I got mine

Everybody's got the monkey
In his head or on his back
Everybody's got the monkey
What I say is a simple fact

Everybody's got the monkey
