"One Monkey Don't Stop No Show" as written by General N. Johnson and Gregory S. Perry....
My baby jumped up this morning
'N sat on the side of the bed
He said, "I'm leaving you, baby"
And this is just what I said
I said, "I can't make you stay if you want to go
But it's high time, baby, that you should know

One monkey don't stop no show
One monkey don't stop no show
So, if you still want to go, go ahead"
And I mean every word I said

My baby thought I was jivin'
And he went right out the door
He left me about three in the morning
I got me a man at four
Some women cry when their men bleed 'em
Dry, long and slow
But I found out somethin' a long time ago

One monkey don't stop no show
One monkey don't stop no show
So if he gets too big for his pants
You better spring that new one and give him a chance

I used to be chicken hearted
Cry when he'd walk out the door
'Cause I was just young and stupid
Ha! Ain't like that no more
'Cause I had a hard way to go
But I learned the score
And I'm here to tell you

One monkey don't stop no show
One monkey don't stop no show
Let him do anything he choose
There's a million men who can fill his shoes

One monkey don't stop no show
One monkey don't stop no show
One monkey don't stop no show
You can tell him I told you so

"All right"
