Why can't you do it?
Why can't you set your monkey free?
Always giving into it
Do you love your monkey or do you love me?

Why can't you do it?
Why do I have to share my baby with a monkey?
Monkey with a monkey monkey
La la la

Oh, I count to ten
But I don't know how
And I don't know when
To open my eyes

Why can't you do it?
Why can't you set your monkey free?
Always giving into it
Do you love your monkey or do you love me?

Why can't you do it?
Why do I have to share my baby with a monkey?
Monkey with a monkey monkey
La la la

Oh, I count to ten
But I don't know how
And I don't know when
To open my eyes

Why can't you do it?
Why can't you set your monkey free?
Always giving into it
Do you love your monkey or do you love me?

Why can't you do it?
Why do I have to share my baby with a monkey?
Monkey with a monkey monkey
La la la

Oh, I count to ten
But I don't know how
And I don't know when
To open my eyes
