Monkey On Your Back

Original and similar lyrics
Let me tell you a story About two kids in the city See they both have a problem with life And it isn't very pretty There's a kid called Timmy He used to be pretty witty But then too many rides on the horse Got him hooked and it's a pity Cause now he's got a monkey He's got a monkey can't fight it Monkey On his back he can't deny it Monkey He found a dragon that bites A hole in his arm at night Where all the money goes Monkey, monkey on his back Monkey, monkey on his back A dirty monkey Well there's a girl called Sally She walks the streets in the city She works down on the corner every night Gives her money up to Willy You see her man's Big Willy And when he met her she was pretty But he gave her a habit that she didn't want Now that's a pity Cause now she's got a monkey She's got a monkey can't fight it Monkey She's gotta walk the streets to buy it Monkey She found a dragon that bites A hole in her arm at night Where all the money goes Monkey, monkey on his back Monkey, monkey on his back A dirty monkey Well now listen everybody Cause there's a moral to the story Clean up your act Get the monkey off your back Or you'll be sorry Keep yourself clean Cause the monkey plays mean He'll put a knife in your back Then the man in the black Will show you a dragon that bites And you'll wind up with a Monkey, monkey on your back Monkey, monkey on your back Monkey, monkey on your back Monkey, monkey on your back

39 Thieves

AESOP ROCK "None Shall Pass"
Hunters with their dogs and deer rifles Thousands of them line the pavement Like patient pupae waiting to become worms The people are dead, but the money keeps talking keep-keeps-keep-keeps talking The people are dead, but the monkey keeps talking, keep [Mr. Lif:] keeps-keep-keeps talking [Aesop Rock (El-P) {Mr. Lif}:] (Another dark night) Teething I'm marking a beast sheep Like I walk in front of 39 thieves in a beat Smores over warm helvetica brown proper For the odd God or monster, proper to teleprompter Wild blue yonder, blue in the face, angel Blew into the bugles in lieu of the euthanasia Usually the shooter community chew the corpse But I see the wolves have already gotten to you and yours Day of the dead, play the ledge closely Train a barrel of monkeys to aim at the lowest bogey Dope the gonzo of what we sold choked socially Stole the golden fleece with the culture of total nobodies Earth rised, the divide up of fighting tribes All we do is watch 'em waddle back and forth lighting fires {Money money} Detonator, wire cutter, pliers Two cities and the one is broken up in tiny towns And I won't pose, I'm in the heart of the lion's throat For a photographic token of my primordial growth You parade around and kill, so damn proud Like a flatline fetish, had it's feathers fanned out War tore the symmetry, skipped into it gingerly Silk worms ping-pong ministry to ministry Hell's bells every which way the the wind blows So I bang my head against any wall you can build, go [Chorus: El-P] Another dark night, another not-all-right Another bad ritual, more botched surgery Better follow the bread crumbs back in fact, urgently Or waddle through this section where the natives feel "murdery" Vicinity wander, claim no soul Never let an anchor drop Never had a home, never talk to strangers Never trust a friend This is the life and the life will not end [Mr. Lif:] Money [x8] [Aesop Rock (El-P) {Mr. Lif}:] Next time think 39 thieves are quicker than 40 winks... Raise your drinks 39 thieves are quicker than 40 winks We're not concerned with the community aloofness Duke, we're animals, we just go where the most food is Lower the toast, most formal etiquette is useless Truth is you're equally expendable if spoon fed {Money money} Money is cool and I'm only human But they use it as a tool to make the workers feel excluded Like the shinier the jewel the more exclusive the troop is Bullets don't take bribes stupid, they shoot shit (Another dark night) Calicos tread around the rabbit hole Weapons to the heavens and arsenic where the carrots grows Piss warmed sugar water wore the summer canteen Plus burned rubber like "green is the new green" Rubber necks froze, slows by the multiplex Rodeo commotion, I'm open to see what culminates Bougie on the right, left rep rebel force Both say the feudal group the parking lot was never yours Black top pebble wars Soldiers mold it where the Jones is every grown up Want the code again to get to grow in No motive, it showed up in dose quotas Hog barn burner come see if your homes hold us Eighty-five rattle-trap parked through fancy Which swayed with stepping out of Comanche, antsy Let us in the jetty when they jettison the medicine And paranormal hatchet and cadets to break the levees in {Money money} Both know the totem camaraderie Token of equality, they post it horizontally Chronicle the loading dock, they crawl to lodge the colony Half-massed flags, half caps stole the properly And sleep the sleep of the just ready on the left Where the witchcraft spun out of a neighboring sect With the usual undesirables and the big brother cutters On the day your name became "This Motherfucker?" [Chorus: El-P] Another dark night, another not-all-right Another bad ritual, more botched surgery Better follow the bread crumbs back in fact, urgently Or waddle through this section where the natives feel "murdery" Vicinity wander, claim no soul Never let an anchor drop Never had a home, never talk to strangers Never trust a friend This is the life and the life will not end [El-P:] This-is-the-life [x3] [Mr. Lif:] The people are dead, but the money keeps talking This-is-the-life [Mr. Lif:] Talking This-is-the-life [Mr. Lif:] Money money This-is-the-life

Please call me when you get a chance. Once again, Todd Ferman, Gigantic Records. We love your album but we really want to change everything

Porcelain Monkey

WARREN ZEVON "Life'll Kill Ya"
(Warren Zevon and Jorge Calderon) He was an accident waiting to happen Most accidents happen at home Maybe he should've gone out more often Maybe he should've answered the phone Hip-shakin' shoutin' in gold lame' That's how he earned his regal sobriquet Then he threw it all away For a porcelain monkey He threw it away for a porcelain monkey Gave it all up for a figurine He traded it in for a night in Las Vegas And his face on velveteen From a shotgun shack singing Pentecostal hymns Through the wrought iron gates to the TV room He had a little world, it was smaller than your hand It's a rockabilly ride from the glitter to the gloom Left behind by the latest trends Eating fried chicken with his regicidal friends That's how the story ends With a porcelain monkey He threw it away for a porcelain monkey Gave it all up for a figurine He traded it in for a night in Las Vegas And his face on velveteen Hip-shakin' shoutin' in gold lame' That's how he earned his regal sobriquet Then he threw it all away For a porcelain monkey He threw it away for a porcelain monkey Gave it all up for a figurine He traded it in for a night in Las Vegas And his face on velveteen
