Woe is me
Well I been dyin'
Got to get that monkey off my back

The fortune teller looked into my eyeballs
The wrinkles on her face about to crack
She said you best believe it, you ain't goin' nowhere
Unless you get that monkey off your back

Well, I made believe the devil made me do it
I was the evil leader of the pack
You best believe I had it all and then I blew it
Feedin' that ****in' monkey on my back

Ahh, if you put it in a spoon man I would boot it
