"What Makes the Monkey Dance" as written by and Chuck Prophet....
What makes the monkey dance? (x6)
Birds and bees, chimpanzees
zoom 'round my head, swingin' from trees
She's a deep dish pie, precious flower
Wrapped like candy, print and pallid

All the creepers creep and the widows weep
In the dead of the night I'm counting sheep
All night long I toss and turn
I wonder what it's gonna take to learn

What makes the monkey dance? (x6)

Got brand new drugs for the same old blues
Satellites peekin' into your room
A machine to tell me if you're lying
Got sheep for corn and eggs for fryin'
I can meet for lunch with the man on the moon
Do almost anything I want to do
Makes no difference where you go
Everybody got a theory but nobody knows

What makes the monkey dance? (x14)

Taking pills on my knees for clues to life's mysteries
Daytime soaps, late night cable
'Round the corner, under the table
I'm looking for love that can remain
Lookin' for love that knows no shame
Big or round, short or tall
I've got to get it, I'm nothing at all

What makes the monkey dance (x20)

Com'on
