About Mickey's Monkey

"Mickey's Monkey" is a 1963 song recorded by the R&B group The Miracles on Motown Records' Tamla label. It was written and produced by Motown's main songwriting team of Brian Holland, Lamont Dozier, and Eddie Holland, who later went on to write 2 more Miracles hit singles, the Top 40 "I Gotta Dance to Keep From Crying", and the Top 20 "(Come 'Round Here) I'm The One You Need". This was unusual, as most Miracles songs were composed by the group members themselves.

This cat named Mickey came from out of town, yea!
He was spreading a new dance all around
In just a matter of a few days, yea!
His dance became the new teenage craze.
 
When the people see him dancing,
They begin to see,
To see this cat do that monkey thing.
