Monkey Man Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I'm a flea bit peanut monkey
All my friends are junkies
That's not really true
Verse 2
I'm a cold Italian pizza
I could use a lemon squeezer
What you do?
Verse 3
But I've been bit and I've been tossed around
By every she-rat in this town
Have you, babe?
Verse 4
Well, I am just a monkey man
I'm glad you are a monkey woman too
Verse 5
I was bitten by a boar
I was gouged and I was gored
But I pulled on through
Verse 6
Yes, I'm a sack of broken eggs
I always have an unmade bed
Don't you?
Verse 7
Well, I hope we're not too messianic
Or a trifle too satanic
We love to play the blues
Verse 8
Well I am just a monkey man
I'm glad you are a monkey, monkey woman too, babe
Verse 9
I'm a monkey
I'm a monkey
I'm a monkey man
I'm a monkey man
I'm a monkey...
