lyrics

(P.Mark)
From the album IndigoVertigo

All around the world people giving me advice
If I heard it once I heard it more than twice
Keep the monkey in the box
Keep the monkey in the box
Keep the monkey in the box
No use for monkeying around

Jumping on the sidelines trying to get into the game
The coach yells, sit down son, today ain’t your day
Keep the monkey in the box
Keep the monkey in the box
Keep the monkey in the box
No use for monkeying around

Woman in a red dress walks into the church
The preacher in the pulpit starts to fumble with his words
Keep the monkey in the box
Keep the monkey in the box
Keep the monkey in the box
No use for monkeying around

Private in the trenches, got the foe within his sights
The sergeant barks, he’ one of ours, son, hold your fire
Keep the monkey in the box
Keep the monkey in the box
Keep the monkey in the box
No use for monkeying around

The snap is down, the kick is up, the crowd holds their breath
The wind shifts right, the ref calls “wide left”
Keep the monkey in the box
Keep the monkey in the box
Keep the monkey in the box
No use for monkeying around

Jack and Jill when up the hill to see what’s in the well
Momma heard about it – man, you shoulda heard her yell
Keep the monkey in the box
Keep the monkey in the box
Keep the monkey in the box
No use for monkeying around
