"Monkey Man" as written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards....
Aye aye aye, aye aye aye
Tell you baby, you hugging up the big monkey man
Aye aye aye, aye aye aye
Tell you baby, you hugging up the big monkey man

I never saw you, I only heard of you
hugging up the big monkey man
I never saw you, I only heard of you
hugging up the big monkey man

It's no lie, it's no lie
Them a tell me, you hugging up the big monkey man
It's no lie, it's no lie
Them a tell me, you hugging up the big monkey man

Now I know that, now I understand
You're turning a monkey on me
Now I know that, now I understand
You're turning a monkey on me

Aye aye aye, aye aye aye
Tell you baby, you hugging up the big monkey man
Aye aye aye, aye aye aye
Tell you baby, you hugging up the big monkey man

I was on my way to Banbury Cross,
Then I see a monkey upon a white horse
With rings on he fingers, bells on him toes
Sing a little song, wherever he be
Cause he's a monkey, 'cause he's a monkey
Cause he's a weedy little monkey man

Aye aye aye, aye aye aye
Tell you baby, you hugging up the big monkey man
Aye aye aye, aye aye aye
Tell you baby, you hugging up the big monkey man

    General CommentOriginally by Toots and the Maytals, and previously covered by The Specials, this is undeniably a kick ass version.

    I'm still undecided whether or not it beats the original or the Specials cover...
