Ay ay ay, ay ay ay, 
Tell you baby, 
You huggin' up the big monkey man 
You huggin' up the big monkey man 

I've seen no sign of you, I've only heard that you huggin' up the big monkey man  
I've seen no sign of you, I've only heard that you huggin' up the big monkey man  
Is not lie, is not lie, them a tell me, you huggin' up the big monkey man 
Is not lie, is not lie, them a tell me, you huggin' up the big monkey man 

Now I know that, now I understand, you turnin' a monkey on me
Now I know that, now I understand, you turnin' a monkey on me
