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.
It's really something to see,
This cat named Mickey
Doing the monkey.
 
Come on, let's do Mickey's monkey, children,
Yea, let's do Mickey's monkey, children
Lum di lum di lie
Lum di lum di lie
Lum di lum di lie
Lum di lum di lie
Lum di lum di lie
Lum di lum di lie
Lum di lum di lie
 
Oh,
Monkey see, monkey do,
Come on, you can do the monkey, children
Yea, you're doing Mickey's monkey, children,
Do the monkey, Mickey's monkey
Oh, do the monkey, Mickey's monkey
Mickey's monkey
