Monkey


by Harry Belafonte. Buy album CD: Jump Up Calypso


One Monday morning I got up late
And there was Mr. Monkey outside me gate
One Monday morning I got up late
There was Mr. Monkey outside me gate

Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)
Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)

My girl came over to have a drink
I came downstairs and what do you think?
The monkey had run and he let her in
He poured her a glass of me favorite gin

I donít know what to say de monkey wonít do
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)
Well I drink gin monkey drink gin too
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)

I ran to de yard to get a stick
But Iím tellin you friends that monkey was quick
ĎCause when I returned much to my disgrace
Mr. Monkey had my girl in a manly embrace

I donít know what to say de monkey wonít do
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)
Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)

Yessah! Up!
Ah play dat ting!
Round de corner!
Hep!

I went to me bath for a Burma Shave
This monkey going put me in a me grave
The entire cabinet was laid to waste
I had to shave with some Gleem toothpaste

I donít know what to say de monkey wonít do
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)
Well I go to shave monkey go shave too
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)

Well by dis time I was in despair
I was using de shoebrush to brush me hair
I ask him to leave but he stayed around
He pulled de chain and I almost went down

I donít know what to say de monkey wonít do
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)
Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)

Yep!
Yessah! Play sah!
Mariposa!
Yep!

Well me patience run out and Iím telling you sure
Tomorrow Iím going show dat monkey de door
And if he donít leave Iím inviting you
To me house for dumplings and monkey stew

Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)

I donít know what to say de monkey wonít do
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)

When I drink gin monkey drink gin too
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)

When I go (rat tat tat) monkey go (rat tat tat) too
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)

When I go brrp! Monkey go brrp! too
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)

When I go down monkey go down too
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)

When I go up monkey go up too
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)

Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)

I donít know what to say de monkey wonít do
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)

When I go (smooch) monkey go (smooch) too
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)

Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)

When I play drum monkey play drum too
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)

I donít know what to say de monkey wonít do
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)

Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do
(Donít know what to say de monkey wonít do)
