  • Oh my my, little white lie
    I swear I'm gonna make it right this time

    It's like a radio turning way down low
    Telling me things I do not know I know

    Tonight you will be mine
    Tonight the monkey dies
    Tonight you will be mine
    Tonight the monkey dies

    Now who's to blame, we used to be the same
    Now you won't let me speak your name, what a shame

    It's a suicide, shut up and drive
    We're never gonna make the light but it's alright

    'Cause tonight you will be mine
    Tonight the monkey dies
    Tonight you will be mine
    Tonight the monkey dies

    Tonight you will be mine
    Tonight the monkey dies
    Tonight you will be mine
    Tonight the monkey dies

    Oh, tonight you will be mine
    Tonight the monkey dies

    Tonight you will be mine
    Oh, tonight the monkey dies Writer/s: GEORGE ALAN SPARHAWK, MIMI J. PARKER, ZACHARY MICHELETTI

  • Lif from Quemado, NmFirst, I have to say I'm a die-hard Led Zeppelin fan. That explains why I keep waiting for Plant to open up and really SING. This song would have been incredible if the singing wasn't so... surface.
