Yo dis is TLC 
Yeah and we're back to school the girlies 
And if n ya know that yo man is startin' to flip
 Shock that monkey on the TLC Tip

y'all know we ain't down for no monkey business
It ain't even like that
Yo T-Boz kick it

When you know that it's good
And you know that it's hot
All the girlies want a piece of what you've got
When a man is a man
And it's all in his face
He's 'gon jump all on it
 Cause it be's that way

 Gotta get up on it
Put that heart aside
Ain't about that lovin'
It's all about that pride 
If you do unto him
What he does all the time
That's the only thing for sure
To keep that nickel in line
You gotta go

[Chorus]
 Shock dat monkey  Shock 'em good shock 'em good
 Shock dat monkey 
Hey, hey, hey, hey
 Shock dat monkey  Shock 'em good, shock 'em good
 Shock dat monkey 

If he plays in the field 
And he's shamin' your name
Got no time for tears 
You can get in the game
If a man is a man
And he calls you a ho
Ain't no point in playin'
If he doesn't know (yeah)

Don't let him know
If you don't go through it
And if it blows 
Hey just don't sweat it
Now you're in control 
If you just don't screw it
 Shock him before 
He knows you know so

[Chorus]

Yo you want to know somethin' I'm in a situation 
Like it or not it's you, your own creation 
Lendin' a leg cause you ain't too proud to beg
For a quick sensation invitation 
And bein' that I am the kinda girl that I am
Lend a hand and dare you to give a damn
 Cause his story can be my story too
Oh monkey see monkey do

When you know that it's good
And you know that it's hot
All the girlies want a piece of what you've got
When a man is a man
And it's all in his face
He's 'gon jump all on it
 Cause it be's that way (yeah)

[Chorus]

Yo it ain't cool and as a matter of fact
Get the monkey up off your back
And when he want to know where you're at
Get the monkey up off your back
Even if he don't like it like dat
Get the monkey up off your back
You gotta do it to keep 'em intact 
Get that monkey up offa your back

[Chorus]

 Gotta get up on
Put that heart aside
It ain't about that lovin'
It's all about that pride 
If you do unto him
What he does all the time
That's the only thing for sure
To keep that nickel in line

Hey

 Break 

[Chorus]
