So your friends have been telling you
I'm outta my mind, actin' all wild and weird
Shoutin' and screechin', bouncin' off the walls
Swinging from the chandeliers
I've been running through the neon jungle
I've been chasing every woman in town

When you turn a man into a monkey
That monkey's gonna monkey around

Now, wait until you see my new girlfriend
I picked her up down at the zoo
She's got rings in her nose, glitter on her toes
And a very well placed tattoo
Now that I've been up on the high wire
You ain't ever gonna get me down

When you turn a man into a monkey
That monkey's gonna monkey around

Well, once you had me dancing at the end of your chain
Begging for your small change love
I was jumping through hoops, doing loopty loops
Yeah but girl I finally had enough
So when ya see me out rockin' in my little red hat
Going eight ball over town

Well you made a man into a monkey
That monkey's gonna monkey around, monkey with it now

Yeah, once you had me dancing at the end of your chain
Begging for your small change love
I was jumping through hoops, doing loopty loops
Yeah but, girl I finally had enough
So when ya see me out rockin' in my little red hat
Going eight ball over town

Well you made a man into a monkey
And that monkey's gonna monkey around

Yeah, baby
You made a man into a monkey
This monkey's gonna monkey around, yea
Yea yea yea yea yea yea yea
