Monkey Man

Lyrics: Jagger, Richard
Music: Jagger, Richard

Sung by Alex Koford with Phil Lesh and the Terrapin Family Band in April 2014.

I'm a fleabit peanut monkey
All my friends are junkies
That's not really true

I'm a cold Italian pizza
I could use a lemon squeezer
What you do

But I've been bit and I've been tossed around
By every she-rat in this town
Have you, babe

Well, I am just a monkey man
I'm glad you are a monkey woman too

I was bitten by a boar
I was gouged and I was gored
But I pulled on through

Yes, I'm a sack of broken eggs
I always have an unmade bed
Don't you

Well, I hope we're not too messianic
Or a trifle too satanic
We love to play the blues

Well I am just a monkey man
I'm glad you are a monkey, monkey woman
Monkey woman too, babe

I'm a monkey, I'm a monkey
I'm a monkey man, I'm a monkey man
I'm a monkey, I'm a monkey, I'm a monkey, I'm a monkey
Monkey, monkey, monkey
[etc]
