Monkey

Album: Recovering The Satellites (1996)
  • All dressed up
    No place to go
    Hey monkey, when you gonna show your face around me?
    I know all the wrongs and rights
    And I just want a little light to fall on me

    Hey monkey, where you been?
    This lonely spiral I've been in
    Hey monkey, when can we begin?
    Hey monkey, where you been?

    We'll I'm all messed up
    That's nothing new
    Hey monkey, when you open up your blue eyes,
    I don't know if I'm wide awake or dreaming
    But all I ever need is everything

    Hey monkey, where you been?
    This lonely spiral I've been in
    Hey monkey, when can we begin?
    Hey monkey, where you been?

    Just get the world off your shoulders
    and close your pretty blue eyes
    Hey monkey, what's life without an occasional surprise?

    Got nowhere but home to go
    Got Ben Folds on my radio right now
    I'm in trouble for the things I need
    Hey monkey don't you want to be needed too?

    Hey monkey, where you been?
    This lonely spiral I've been in
    Hey monkey, when can we begin?
    Hey monkey, where you been?

  • Terry from Grafon, WiI want to say with almost certainty that this song is about Courteney Cox....I believe I read that somewhere. They were dating at the time this song was written and some of the lyrics match up to a description of her (most notably "Hey monkey, when you open up your blue eyes,
    I don't know if I'm wide awake or dreaming, But all I ever need is everything")
