Why can't you do it?
Always giving into it

Why do I have to share my baby with a monkey?
La la la
Oh, I count to ten
And I don't know when

Like you did just now
Just Do it again
I've had the rest
So you tell me

But I think you know me better
I'll get what I'm asking for
Why can't you do it?
Always giving in to it

Why do I have to share my baby with a monkey?
La la la
Oh, I hate your friends
To open your eyes
Do you want him now like you did back then?
I tried my best but your head is such a mess
Well you say you care about me
But you keep on dancin' baby

Why can't you set your monkey free?
Do you love the monkey or do you love me?
Why can't you do it
Monkey, with a monkey, monkey

There's a monkey on your back
There's a monkey on you
There's a monkey on your back
There's a monkey on you
So you tell me
If I keep on askin' baby, maybe

Why can't you set your monkey free?
Do you love the monkey or do you love me?
Why can't you do it?
Monkey, with a monkey, monkey

Why can't you set your monkey free?
Do you love the monkey or do you love me?
Why can't you do it?
Monkey, with a monkey, monkey
Why can't you do it?
Always giving into it

Why do I have to share my baby with a monkey?
La la la
Oh, I count to ten
And I don't know when

Like you did just now
Just Do it again
I've had the rest
So you tell me

But I think you know me better
I'll get what I'm asking for
Why can't you do it?
Always giving in to it

Why do I have to share my baby with a monkey?
La la la
Oh, I hate your friends
To open your eyes
Do you want him now like you did back then?
I tried my best but your head is such a mess
Well you say you care about me
But you keep on dancin' baby

Why can't you set your monkey free?
Do you love the monkey or do you love me?
Why can't you do it
Monkey, with a monkey, monkey

There's a monkey on your back
There's a monkey on you
There's a monkey on your back
There's a monkey on you
So you tell me
If I keep on askin' baby, maybe

Why can't you set your monkey free?
Do you love the monkey or do you love me?
Why can't you do it?
Monkey, with a monkey, monkey

Why can't you set your monkey free?
Do you love the monkey or do you love me?
Why can't you do it?
Monkey, with a monkey, monkey
Why can't you do it?
Always giving into it

Why do I have to share my baby with a monkey?
La la la
Oh, I count to ten
And I don't know when

Like you did just now
Just Do it again
I've had the rest
So you tell me

But I think you know me better
I'll get what I'm asking for
Why can't you do it?
Always giving in to it

Why do I have to share my baby with a monkey?

Why can't you set your monkey free?
Do you love the monkey or do you love me?
Why can't you do it
Monkey, with a monkey, monkey

There's a monkey on your back
There's a monkey on you
There's a monkey on your back
There's a monkey on you
So you tell me
If I keep on askin' baby, maybe

Why can't you set your monkey free?
Do you love the monkey or do you love me?
Why can't you do it?
Monkey, with a monkey, monkey

Why can't you set your monkey free?
Do you love the monkey or do you love me?
Why can't you do it?
Monkey, with a monkey, monkey
