"Monkey Man" as written by and Frederick Hibbert....
Ay ay ay, ay ay ay,
Tell you baby,
You huggin' up the big monkey man
You huggin' up the big monkey man

I've seen no sign of you, I've only heard that you huggin' up the big monkey man
I've seen no sign of you, I've only heard that you huggin' up the big monkey man
Is not lie, is not lie, them a tell me, you huggin' up the big monkey man
Is not lie, is not lie, them a tell me, you huggin' up the big monkey man

Now I know that, now I understand, you turnin' a monkey on me
Now I know that, now I understand, you turnin' a monkey on me

    General CommentDefo in my top 10 of all time. "Monkey Man" is what they call bouncers in Jamaica. I'm sure we all share that burning hate for bouncers haha. By the way if you're on this page, well done for still listening to real music these days!

    General CommentI read somewhere that this was a jab at Leslie Kong, who was their producer. Can anyone elaborate on this?

    Song MeaningIt's only a jab to their ex-producer Leslie Kong. He was Chinese-jamaican.

    They almost never saw him.
