​The Monkey's Paw

This song is by The Electric Hellfire Club and appears on the album Witness The Millennium (2000).

Did you ever stop to think about how
Every silver lining has its cloud?
If a sick little monkey were to give you three wishes
Are you sure you'd know the difference?

Between what you gave and what you'd get
What is real and what's not?
What to hide and what to flaunt?
What you need and what you want?

'Cause when the monkey demands his sacrifice
You better be ready to pay the price
You better know what you're asking for
When you ask the monkey's paw
Is it what you need or what you want?
Beware the monkey's paw

'Cause if you realize that you didn't really need it
Got a monkey on your back?
You'll have to feed it
There's no escape from the Monkey's law
You gotta rob Peter to pay the paw

You better make sure it's what you want
When you ask the monkey's paw

You might just get what you're asking for
When you hold the monkey's paw

Are you sure it's what you want?
Beware the monkey's paw
Is it what you need or what you want?

Is it what you want? - What you really want?
Is it what you need? - Do you really need it?

You better be sure it's what you want
When you ask the monkey's paw
You might just get what you're asking for
When you hold the monkey's paw
Are you sure it's what you want?
Beware the monkey's paw
You better be sure it's what you want
When you ask the monkey's paw
You might just get what you're asking for
When you hold the monkey's paw
Are you sure it's what you want?
Beware the monkey's paw
