Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Oh the monkey's had a better tale than you
Compare to yours all their tales sound so true
The way you're actin' seems to me at all the monkey should go free
You're the one that should be locked up in the Zoo

[Verse 2]
When I married you I thought you were a man
But you're the biggest ape that's living in this land
I'd like to run you up a tree for the way you lie to me
Your swinging round is getting out of hand
Oh the monkey's had

[Verse 3]
Every monkey has its day so go ahead and play
Make your plans and tell your lies and stick to them
But from now on I remind you can wag your tail behind you
Cause you finally got yourself out on a limb

[Outro]
Every monkey has its day
Oh the monkey's had a better tale than you
