  • I was in the wild
    Living life from tree to tree
    So I learned a simple song
    And sang it in a jamboree

    And the people came and cheered
    Thought that I was finally free
    Till they sold me to a man
    Who had another plan for me

    He said dance monkey, dance
    (Dance monkey)
    Play that song I know, oh, oh
    He said dance monkey, dance
    (Dance monkey)
    In this yellow coat

    Dance, dance, dance monkey
    Dance, dance, dance monkey
    Dance, dance, dance monkey

    Saved up just enough
    Enough to buy a new guitar
    And I wrote a simple song
    An honest message from my heart

    When I sang it to the crowd
    It was not the same applause
    I could hear them screaming out
    You know what we came here for

    They said dance monkey, dance
    (Dance monkey)
    Play that song I know, oh, oh
    They said dance monkey, dance
    (Dance monkey)
    In your flower coat

    Dance, dance, dance monkey
    Dance, dance, dance monkey

    Dance, dance, dance monkey
    Dance, dance, dance monkey

    It doesn't matter what the people say
    You can take my house way
    'Cause I know that I'll never meant
    No dance, dance, dance monkey
    It doesn't matter what the people say
    You can take my house way
    'Cause I know that I'll never meant
    No dance, dance, dance monkey
