Monkey

(written by Johnny Goudie and Hector Villareal)

 

I donít control the monkey

In fact itís got me

Wrapped around a barrel

And tied up to a tree

Only if you let me yesterday

You would regret it

Now youíre living your own hell

And let my cigarette run free

So if your monkey lets you be

Give your cigarettes to me

Alright

 

Messy is our break up

I canít bring myself to do it

Every time I go away

I find myself runniní back to it

Kill me slowly baby

Kill me like you really mean it

Give me one last smoke

And Iíll be damned if thatís the last Iíll need so

If your monkey sets you free

Give your cigarettes to me

 

Weíre the only ones to know

But you can never let it show

But the monkey wonít let go

 

So if your monkey sets you free

And if your monkey lets you be

And you throw your cares to the sea

And when your monkey sets you free

Give your cigarettes to me

Give your cigarettes to me

Give your cigarettes to me

Yeah give your cigarettes to me
