The Beatles

The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. They became the most commercially successful and critically acclaimed act in the history of popular music. Their best-known lineup consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. Rooted in skiffle and 1950s rock and roll, they later utilised several genres, ranging from pop ballads to psychedelic rock, often incorporating classical and other elements in innovative ways. In the early 1960s, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania", but as their songwriting grew in sophistication, they came to be perceived by many fans and cultural observers as an embodiment of the ideals shared by the era's sociocultural revolutions. more »

Running to and fro, 
Hard working at the mill, 
 Never failed at the mill, 
 There come a rotten bill. 
Aw too much monkey business, 
Too much monkey business, 
Too much monkey business 
For me to be involved again. 

 Salesman talking to me, 
 Trying to run me up a creek, 
Says you can buy it, go on try it, 
You can pay me next week. 
Aw too much monkey business, 
Too much monkey business, 
Too much monkey business 
For me to be involved again. 

 Blonde hair, good-looking, 
 Trying to get me hooked and married 
Get a home, settle down by the book. 
Too much monkey business, 
Too much monkey business, 
Too much monkey business 
For me to be involved again. 

Been to Yokohama, baby, 
 Fighting in the war, 
Army bunk, army chow, 
Army clothes, army car. 
Too much monkey business, 
Too much monkey business, 
Too much monkey business 
For me to be involved again. 

Same thing every day, 
 Getting up, going to school. 
No need for me complaining, 
My objection's overruled. 
Aw too much monkey business, 
Too much monkey business, 
Too much monkey business 
For me to be involved again. 

 Working in the filling station, 
Too many tasks, 
Wipe the windows, check the oil, 
 Check the tires, dollar gas? 
Aw too much monkey business, 
Too much monkey business 
Don't want you by the race, 
Get away and leave me. 

[Original has one more verse: 
Pay-phone, something's wrong, 
Dime gone, will mail. 
 Oughta sue the operator 
For telling me a tale. 
Too much monkey business, 
Too much monkey business, 
Too much monkey business 
For me to be involved with you.]
