This song
was a Billboard Hit!
There's a place right across town whenever you're ready
Where people gather round whenever they're ready
And then the music begins to play
You feel a groove coming on its way

Are you ready (are you ready)
Well, you get yours cause I got mine
For the Monkey Time (Monkey Time)
(Monkey Time)

Now the dance that the people do, I don't know how it started
All I know 's that when the beat brings a feel, it's so hard to get parted
And then the music begins to play
Well, automatically you're on your way

Are you ready (are you ready)
Well, you get yours cause I got mine
For the Monkey Time
Ah, do the Monkey, yeah (do the Monkey Time)
Ah, do the Monkey, yeah (do the Monkey Time)

Ah, twist them hips (twist them hips)
Let your backbone slip (let your backbone slip)
Now move your feet (move your feet)
Get on the beat (get on the beat)

Are you ready (are you ready)
Well, you get yours cause I got mine
For the Monkey Time (Monkey Time)
(Monkey Time)

Now the dance that the people do, I don't know how it started
All I know's that when the beat brings a feel, it's so hard to get parted
And then the music begins to play
Well, automatically you're on your way

Are you ready (are you ready)
Well, you get yours, cause I got mine
For the Monkey Time (Monkey Time)
Ah, do the Monkey, yeah (Monkey Time)
Give me a big strong line (Monkey Time)
You're looking real fine
