This monkey's no friend of mine 
I try to act straight but he's on cloud number nine 
He's got a cup made of tin 
And it's 'cause of him you won't let me in 
 
verse 2:  
 
| G#5 | C#5 | F5 C#5 | F5 D#5 |  2x 
 
He bangs a drum so i can get no sleep 
Well he's a monkey but he can't be beat 
 
Bridge (same as before) 
 
Head over heels on banana peel 
I'm getting confused as to what i feel 
And every time i try to speak 
He always puts his monkeytongue in my cheek 
 
Chorus: 
 
| C5 | F5(I) | A#5 | D#5 | 
| C5 | F5(I) | C#5 | D#5 | 
 
Oh my my - i'd do anything to make him die 
But then i see there's nothing i can do 
The monkey's just a part of me 
  
Lead guitar: 
 
      C5                F5(I)             A#5               D#5

Verse 3: 
 
| G#5 | C#5 | F5 C#5 | F5 D#5 |  2x 
 
I got a monkey singing in my brain 
I should have known already we're the same

Chorus (Same lead as before): 
 
| C5 | F5(I) | A#5 | D#5 | 
| C5 | F5(I) | C#5 | D#5 | 
 
Oh my my - i'd do anything to make him die 
But then i see there's nothing i can do 
The monkey's just a part of me 
 
Verse 4: 
 
| G#5 | C#5 | F5 C#5 | F5 D#5 |  2x 
 
I got some monkey business to attend 
I think i'll ask him if he'd hold my hand 
 
Bridge 
 
And ask him to be a friend of mine 
Together we'll fly up to cloud number nine 
And share his cup made of tin 
Maybe then you'd like to let us in 
 
Chorus 
 
| C5 | F5(I) | A#5 | D#5 | 
| C5 | F5(I) | C#5 | D#5 | 
 
Oh my my - i did everything to make him die 
But now i see there's nothing ican do 
The monkey's just a part of me 
 
Outro: 
 
| G#5 | C#5 | F5 C#5 | F5 D#5 | G#5... 
 
I got some monkey business to attend
