Oh God save me for I am wicked and damned 
Oh God show me a better way to the Promised Land 
'Cause I I can't take it no I can't shake it no I can't break it no 
Don't want to eat it no more I cannot hide it 
I'm uninvited I can't fake it no I can't shake it 
I can't take it I can't shake shake shake shake 

Shake that 'ol monkey off my back 
Gimme my money back slip through your crack 
Gimme my money back sit back 

Oh God know me I'm just dirty footprints at your door 
Oh God hold me from one more trip and liquor store 
'Cause I I can't take it and I can't shake shake shake shake 

Shake that 'ol monkey off my back 
Gimme my money back slip through your crack 
Gimme my money sit back 
Gimme my money back 
Slip through your crack an' get back 

I'm not praying for a miracle just a little peace of mind 
And if what I do is all in vain as I'm screamin' goin' insane 
Still I am not my name God wouldn't save me, 
So now it's me and my rotten friends 
The drugs ain't working, no they're just jacking me off again
