​Ole King Kong

This song is by Marty Brown and appears on the album High & Dry (1991).

Well I used to be king of the jungle swingin' high from every tree
Oh I had no woman to bound me up I was foot loose and fancy free
But this woman came along she put me in a cage
She's got me under her lock and key
Well I've flipped a new leaf turned a new page
Cause here's what she's done to me

I gotta get off work oh I gotta get back home
I gotta see my sweet sweet baby been thinking of her all day long
Yeah I gotta do right by her Lord knows I can't do no wrong
Cause Lord she's done made a monkey out of ole King Kong

She's got me wrapped around her finger so tight
Lord I don't even know which way to lose
When she says jump I say how high do you choose
She's got me under her thumb she won't even let me wear my shoes
And the only king I am now is king of the blues

I gotta get off work...
I gotta get off work...
