Not My Monkey

Not my monkey, not my monkey, not my monkey,
Not my monkey, is what Mary said.
Telll me, "When does money, when does money
Stay awake and worry, about you and me?"

I was feeling weak and the fox at my heels,
said, "I'm supposed to be here, why are you not asleep?"
The children screaming with the sunrise,
No sympathy or time for the darkness on my mind.

Singing,
Not my monkey, not my monkey, not my monkey,
Not my monkey, is what Mary said.
Telll me, "When does money, when does money
Stay awake and worry, about you and me?"

The band are rocking, drum and bass are locking,
But that boy won't stop talking,
Gonna lose my temper.

But it's not my monkey, if you win or fail,
It's not my monkey but get out of my way.
But it's not my monkey, if you win or fail,
It's not my monkey but get out of my way.

Give me back my coat, my bag of tricks,
I'm sick of your nonsense, your one horse circus,
Give me back my coat, my bag of tricks,
I'm sick of your nonsense, your tightrope theatrics.

It's not my monkey, if you win or fail,
It's not my monkey but get out of my way.
