"The Monkey Time" as written by and Curtis Mayfield....
Now there's a place right across town, whenever you're ready
Where the people gather 'round, whenever they're ready
And then the music begins to play
You feel a groove comin' on its way

Are you ready? Yes I'm ready.
You get yours, I got mine
For the monkey time, monkey time

Now this dance that the people do, don't know how it started
All I know is when the beat brings the feel
it's hard to get parted
And then the music begins to play
And automatically you're on your way

Are you ready? Yes I'm ready.
You get yours, I got mine
for the monkey time, monkey time

Do the monkey yeah,
Do the monkey yeah,
Do the monkey yeah, yeah
Do the monkey yeah, yeah

Twist them hips
Let your backbone slip
Now move your feet
Get on the beat

Are you ready? Yes I'm ready.
You get yours, I got mine
for the monkey time, monkey time

[spoken]
Say Fee, are you ready tonight?
I'm ready baby.
But you're ready for what, Fee?
I'm ready to do the monkey.
But are you ready for my monkey?
I'm ready, and my monkey's ready.
Your monkey?! Oooo, you'd better put that baby on a chain!
Say baby, my monkey know what he talkin' about.
Now stop it Fee!

Want a whole lot o' love tonight
Treat your monkey right
Want a whole lot o' love tonight
Monkey time tonight
